    Genius. But, this scares me. This means no matter how you set the privacy on your profile, someone with this knowledge will still be able to view it. Ayayay! 🙂

      unfortunately YES.. They did.. but it&#39;s still working on some accounts. <br />Facebook used to fit the select area in the picture as the profile picture (more like zooming) but now they are cropping the picture to the selected area before uploading it as profile picture, that&#39;s why we can&#39;t see the full picture now..
