Facebook will soon allow its over 1 billion users to put in a short video as their profile picture that can be seen on their mobile apps. The social network is slowly rolling out this feature, along with other new additions for its profile section.
In addition, people who want to put in a special profile pic that will later go back to their regular image automatically will be able to accomplish this as well:
Facebook is also introducing new ways to customize your account profile:
Profile pictures will also be bigger when seen on the mobile apps and will be placed in the center of a profile page. In addition, Facebook says:

Just another pointless feature to make the app size bigger, its already too big as it is -_- Moto G 3rd Gen 2015 with only 1GB of RAM
