Just wait, what is all of this? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please scroll down in your timeline to see posts and articles about Digital India Profile pic and Facebook hidden code for support to Internet.Org.
As per sources, Facebook Claimed that all of this was a misunderstanding.
“There is absolutely no connection between updating your profile picture for digital india and internet.org,” a spokesman from facebook said late on monday night.
“An Engineer mistakenly used the words ‘internet.org profile picture’ as a shorthand name he chose for part of the code, but this product is no way connects to or registers support for internet.org. We are changing the code today to eliminate any confusion.”
So, clearly there is no connection between updating your Facebook profile picture to support DIGITAL INDIA and Supporting INTERNET.ORG. Now you can Proudly change your picture without any doubts and if you already changed, No need to revert. #DigitalIndia #ProudToBeIndian
