    Honestly, I think you can still have it after 5 years but only if you’ve changed it inbetween.. I think you should change it within the first year for the first time.. But then again, I am a person who finds it weird having a beach, summer, dress profile picture when it’s freeeeezinh cold outside! 😀

    Once people start calling you Miss Havisham, I think it’s time to change it.

    For me, facebook isn’t really a priority in life.  I don’t think I’ve changed my profile pic in about 2 years.

     

    If you have a pic  you really really like, keep it.  No need to change it.

    I don’t think there’s really a time limit.  You paid hundreds, or even thousands of dollars to have someone take your wedding pictures.  Why not flaunt them?

    I don’t think there’s a time limit. Most of the people on my Facebook page change their profile pictures regularly and lots of them will go back to their wedding photos at some point. I rarely change mine, so my wedding photo might stay my profile picture for two years before I’d change it to something else. I’ve had the same profile picture for a year now.

    I don’t update my profile picture very often, unless there’s a new photo that I actually want to show people. For example I had the same old photo for a year or so, then my horse had a foal, so my profile picture has been me and the foal since last July. No one has commented to say “Your foal is totally older now and you should update your profile picture to reflect that,” so I don’t see why that should apply to wedding profile pictures either.

    I don’t see how it matters.  I think your pic should be whatever you want from whenever you want.

    I don’t think it matters. You paid for your photos, it’s your FB page, and I’ve never heard of anyone complaining about someone’s profile picture being too old (aside from maybe Tom’s historical Myspace photoTongue Out).

    Once you’re divorced…that’s too long.

    I find it odd if months and months after the wedding, people use their wedding picture as their profile, and it definitely depends on the normal FB activity of the person in question.  I can see myself using wedding pictures on our anniversaries, however I regularly update my FB picture to reflect holidays or special occassions.

    I do have a better appreciation now that it can take months to get professional pictures back, so if a wedding picture is your profile picture 2 months after you wed, I think that’s fine. If 6 months later, you are still cycling through your wedding pics, I assume you are just looking for compliments, and ignore them.

    (I will say that I have my picture taken while I’m working by professional photographers once a month or more–they are friends, and they tend to just shoot a candid pic or two of me if they catch one nicely framed, or if I look particularly nice that day–so i tend to  have “fresh”, nice pictures to post as profile pic quite frequently. Also, I’m partial to amatuer pictures of me participating in my passion over posed photos, so wedding pictures would not be something I personally would leave there for too long.)

    I usually change mine once a year…. I still have my profile pic from our engagement session in October. I’ll probably change it after we get our wedding pics. I have no prob with people leaving them up for a while

    I dont’ think there is a time limit.  I change my picture every few months but I’ve definitely gone back to some wedding pictures if I’m in a particularly lovey dovey mood or if I come a wedding picture I hadn’t noticed before that I absolutely love.
