Facebook makes changes to its iOS app, allows profile picture to be replaced by a video loop and more
Just because you're the most popular app in the world doesn't mean that you should rest on your laurels. Facebook, which is the most popular mobile app based on comScore's latest survey, is making some changes and is starting with its iOS app. One change allows members to replace a static profile photograph with a video loop. Additionally, more room is being given for profile images, which will now be found in the center of the profile page.

Profile pictures that are temporary, will now revert back to the original image at a set time. Facebook users put up these temporary pictures to celebrate certain events or holidays. Following the update, the top of the profile page is where you will find details about the Facebook member's life. This biographical information used to be found deeper in the profile page. Also found on top is a way for readers to access the member's pictures and pals. In addition, there is now support for a one sentence profile that can be accompanied by as many as five photographs.

The changes are rolling out slowly, so if you are an iOS user with the Facebook app, be patient. The update will eventually hit your iPhone or iPad.
