    I've been using an avatar until now, but since I don't post anything remotely personal on Facebook (just play games!) I'd like to use a photo. I'm a real dumbo, how do I go about it? Please don't be too technical. Words of one syllable or less would be best!

    Click on Profile, then on account, application settings,then photos, at the top a little to the right you will see upload photos or videos ....

    You can do the same thing from your wall ....or home page ..

    Its not clear on facebook how you do it I know,so your not a dummy, been a while since I did that myself ....try this go to profile and top left there should be something showing by your name,move mouse pointer over that and it should say "change picture" click on that and you have a few options to choose from about loading a picture to there ...you must have the picture on your computer that you want to upload ....post back on result ....

    I think Bob's instructions are pretty clear :) but just in case you are still confused, I will paste this from Facebook:

    How do I add or change a profile picture?

    You can add or change a profile picture in any of the following ways:
    ■To set a photo that you or a friend has already uploaded to Facebook as your profile picture, select "Make Profile Picture" at the bottom right when you are viewing the photo.
    ■To upload a picture that you have saved on your computer, move your mouse over your profile picture and click the pencil icon. Select "Upload a picture" from the drop-down menu and follow the on-screen directions.
    ■To take a new profile picture using your webcam, move your mouse over your profile picture and click the pencil icon. Select "Take a picture" from the drop-down menu and follow the on-screen directions. If you choose to take a picture using your webcam, you may first have to allow your Flash player to access your webcam.

    You can edit the thumbnail version of your profile picture at any time by moving your mouse over your profile picture, clicking the pencil icon, and selecting "Edit Thumbnail." If you wish, you can also remove your profile picture by moving your mouse over your profile picture, clicking the pencil icon, and selecting "Remove your Picture."

    If you are having trouble adding or changing your profile picture, please note that you cannot upload a photo if it is more than three times as tall as it is wide. If you are still experiencing this problem, please report the issue here.
