The latest Facebook meme is to turn your profile pic into your favorite Cartoon character. By now you’ve no doubt seen a viral message like this:
Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until Monday (December 6), there should be no human faces on facebook, but a stash of memories. This is for eliminating violence against children.
Well like most Facebook status trends this isn’t really benefiting any single organization but it does indeed raise awareness and garner some significant media attention so… hey why not?
We recommend that you go ahead and change your profile pic to a cartoon character for the weekend. The key here is creativity people. No standard toons, we want the boldest, craziest childhood memories to come out. Here are some “creative” ideas:
- My Little Pony
- Slimer from Ghostbusters
- Roger Rabbit
- Any Anime Series
If you must go with the traditional Transformers or Ninja Turtles, go ahead. Enjoy the Facebook Cartoon Profile pic trend whilst it lasts. But, remember to take it down Dec 6th, 2010 and keep your eye out for the next Status Update meme.
