    Press down on that tile, and it will open up the Facebook application
    .
    In this tutorial, we want to demonstrate how to add a profile photo to a Facebook account. It's important to note that in order to do this we must have first uploaded a photo to the Facebook application. It is quite common on the website and on other devices for us to be able to add a profile photo just by pressing on the icon next to the name, where the profile photo would normally be. Then we would ordinarily be allowed to upload a photo from a photo album. However, we cannot do that with the Microsoft Lumia 535. We must first upload a photo, and then we can make that photo into a profile photo.

    Just press down on the screen and drag that box to a place where we want.

    The profile photo has not actually changed yet, and that is because this application can be a bit slow, especially when combined with the Microsoft Lumia 535
    .
    It does have some issues with this process.
