Facebook Cartoon Profile Pics Support Kids Or Prey On Them?

Facebook cartoon profile pics have taken over Facebook the past few days. Millions of Facebook users are changing their profile pics to pictures of cartoon characters, and many people are asking, “Why is everyone’s Facebook picture a cartoon?” Facebook cartoon profile pictures are everywhere in the news.

As the Facebook cartoon profile pic meme has gained more and more interest, so have the questions surrounding it. Is the Facebook cartoon campaign supporting kids, or preying on them?

While the Facebook cartoon profile pictures are supposed to be a way to stand up to child abuse and combat child violence, new reports are surfacing that the Facebook campaign may be a hoax set up by people who want to prey on innocent children.

The theory behind the hoax is that children will be more willing to accept friend requests from someone who has a facebook cartoon profile picture, therefore making kids more susceptible to online child predators.

Which theory do you believe about the Facebook cartoon profile pic frenzy? Is the Facebook campaign supporting kids, or preying on them?
