This is likely part of Facebook’s ongoing agenda to haz a cheezburger.

  1. Hover your mouse over your profile picture and click “edit profile picture.”
  2. The “profile pictures option menu” should appear and look like this:
  3. ¬†Click on the circle and select “hidden from timeline.”
  4. Extremely Important: Click “Save” at the bottom of the menu. If you do not click save, Facebook will think that you were just joking, and your profile picture will be turned into a picture of two cats playing with a ball of yarn.
