Facebook is introducing new video profiles that will allow users to change their profile pictures to short videos.
The company says that the move is a response to the overwhelming shift in online activity towards video.
While no date has been set for the release of the feature, Facebook says that users will be able to film a short, looping video clip that plays to anyone who visits their profile.
As well as the new profile video announcement, the company said that users will also be able to select feature pictures to pin to the top of their profile.
On mobile, profile pictures and videos are also going to be shifted to the centre of the profile while users will also be able to set temporary profile pictures or videos.
