Sending files through Facebook is simple, you can exchange images, documents, archives and other kind of files using Facebook Messaging. But have you tried inserting an image in Facebook Chat? Not as an attachment but as a regular display? Well, that’s not possible officially till now, but yes, you can put profile pictures in Facebook Chat – the profile pictures of individuals and pages on Facebook. It will be fun, will not it? So, how to put profile picture in Facebook chat? Here is the guide to do that:
- Get the ID or username of the Facebook profile whose profile pic you want to insert in Facebook Chat. Just visit that Facebook profile and pick the username from the URL (the red portion: http://www.facebook.com/username)in the address bar of the browser. If the profile is not using a username yet, grab the long integer number which comes just after the ?profile.php thing in the URL. Do same thing with pages too.
- Now, you have the ID or username of the Facebook profile or page you want to mention with the profile pic in the chat. Lets say that ID is 167210026662020 – paste this whole string with square brackets in your chat : [] and press enter. You can clearly see a small image appeared in the chat corresponding to the profile ID.
If you have a username, proceed similarly by replacing ID number with username – [[TechAbly]]
