We are all familiar with a Facebook feature that allows us to add filters to show support for our favourite sport teams, causes and movements. The latest update has enabled us to add our country’s flags in the same way on our Facebook DP.

While introducing the new feature, a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement, “Whether you’re showing support for your favourite sports team or solidarity with a cause or movement, profile frames help you express yourself. Now we’re adding flag frames to the mix, in addition to the frames people will be able create on their own thanks to our Camera Effects Platform.”

Although this might seem like a small change for fun and patriotism but it carries huge significance behind. This new feature reflects the manifesto published by Mark Zuckerberg where he admitted that Facebook has a role to play, being a 1.6 billion strong social network. He explained his vision and provided an outline to bring communities together by getting the people with common interests to know each other better.
