Popular characters from the animated world are invading Facebook. If cartoon characters are starting to replace your Facebook friends, take comfort. You’re not alone.campaign stared on Facebook asking people to make Facebook cartoon profile pic, to fight against child abuse. This campaign which started as a game from Greece, on mid of November, took up a more serious turn on December 6th and was famous all across the globe. Mark Zuckerberg, also confirmed the introduction of the campaign make ‘Facebook cartoon profile pic’. The campaign has got nearly 90,000 fans in just one day.
Most of news organizations think the child abuse version of the reason of cartoon characters as profile pic is the viral reason of the campaign. A source familiar with the situation told me that “Facebook users love non-profit activities.” I’m also a Facebook user and I’m aware that there’s an app inside the social networking site called “Causes.”. According to the app’s description page, it “empowers anyone with a good idea or passion for change to impact the world. Using our platform, individuals mobilize their network of friends to grow lasting social and political movements.”
This type of thing is not a new concept on Facebook. Every few months, users are urged to change their profile picture, repost an iteration of some status update that supports a cause, or, worst of all, post a seemingly dadaist non sequitur as their update. (This last meme is supposed to “raise awareness” for a cause by inciting curiosity about the nature of the posts. All it does in my case is incite disdain for the methodology.)
Earlier this morning, “cartoons from the 90s,” “80s cartoons,” “hong kong phooey,” “care bear pictures” and plenty of other cartoon-related phrases dominated Google’s list of hot searches. On Facebook, images of the Flintstones, Thundercats, the Smurfs and other classic cartoon characters are taking over users’ news feeds. According to the trend-tracking website Know Your Meme, the cartoon fad started with Facebook users in Greece and Cyprus in mid-November.
Another big question is how does make ‘Facebook cartoon profile pic’ help to fight against child abuse? Blogger Shayne House said: ‘Facebook cartoon profile pic does not really support the NSPCC unless it inspires or encourages you or someone else to volunteer or donate, which hopefully it will. Did it inspire you? It inspired me to write about it and make a donation.’ Insiders have revealed that this campaign seems to have a lot of influence from across the world and their sole aim of ‘Facebook cartoon profile pic’ was to urge every user of Facebook to remove their profile pic and replace it with a cartoon. How it will help the cause to fight against child abuse still needs to be seen.
