#ProfilesForPeace

Team WOWRAL Mar 16, 2016

The cause is more important!

Something pretty interesting is happening in India and Pakistan on Facebook right now.

Last week marked the beginning of the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 -- the biggest cricket tournament of the year. This is the first time the tournament is being hosted by India.

Fans around the world are going to facebook.com/profilepicframes and using a profile frame to show support for their favorite teams.

But fans from India and Pakistan are doing something different. Hundreds of thousands of Indian cricket fans are putting the Pakistani frame around their picture. And Pakistani fans are doing the same thing -- showing support for India. They're using the hashtag ?#?ProfilesForPeace?.

When we designed the profile frames feature, we just wanted to help people show support for their favorite teams or a cause they believe in. But this story shows that the more connected we are, the more we realize that what unites us is more important than what divides us.
