If Facebook has nothing to fear from Google+, why is it copying the fledgling social network?
Only a few days after Google+ launched a redesign on April 11, Facebook started making its own profile pictures bigger, according to ZDNet.
I contacted Facebook about this tweak and received a prompt reply. “I can confirm we’ve increased the size of profile photos,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. . . .Previously, a profile picture measured 130 x 125 pixels. Now, Facebook’s profile pictures measure 166 x 160 pixels.
