Cartoon Character Facebook Profile Pictures Invasion

There's a new trend that's going viral on Facebook. Facebook users are replacing their profile pictures with photos of their favorite cartoon characters from their childhood.

The message says that this is a campaign to promote awareness of an increase in violence against children.

Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon until Monday (Dec.6) there should be no human faces on facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is for violence against children.

Is this a goal to see how far Facebook can go and make people do this change; or one way to promote social awareness to take further actions against violence?

Yesterday, I've seen Facebook friends joined the campaign and put pictures of characters from the 70s, 80s, 90s and even recent cartoon characters. But it seems that the full force began today! In a span of hours, more than a hundred of my friends had changed their profile pictures!

Facebook Cartoon Profile Pictures

It's quite enjoyable to seen all those characters now. I've seen Hello Kitty, Sailor Moon, The Little Twin Stars, Smurfs and Smurfette, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, Astroboy, Batibot (local cartoon), Pooh and Piglet, Tinkerbell, Disney Princesses, Peter Pan, Voltes V, Daimos, GI Joe, X-Men, Rugrats, Olive, Candy Candy, Bugs Bunny, Tweety Bird, Garfield, Betty Boop, Pocoyo and a lot more!

Chilhood memories and the feelings it brought can never be replaced,. It seems like cartoon life is simple yet almost perfect, where everything comes with what you wished for.

Maybe I'll join trend and support this campaign... I'm torn amongst The Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, Hello Kitty and KeroKeroPi. Oh, maybe I'll go for Rainbow Brite! Her real name is Wisp and her talking horse is named Starlite. She was that little girl who wore a rainbow painted dress.

How about you, who's your favorite childhood cartoon character?
Have you changed yours?
