The USO, or United Services Organizations, has created a temporary profile picture frame for all Facebook users for the Fourth of July.
Facebook began providing these temporary profile photos last year, in order for users to show their support of a cause. Earlier this year they broadened this and now allow a variety of frames and overlays that users can choose to show support of a sports event, a movie, a charity or cause. Facebook partnered with “select pages” that are able to offer frames.
The Next Web reported in an update that Facebook plans to release a self-service platform that would allow other pages to create and upload their own designs for frames and filters.
This month in honor of the USO’s 75th anniversary they have created a frame for the Fourth of July.
“For 75 years, the USO has been dedicated to supporting America’s service members and their loved ones.”
The USO has been providing programs, services and entertainment at more than 180 locations worldwide, including Afghanistan, Kuwait, Germany, Japan, Iraq, South Korea and the United States.
“USO centers provide a warm and comforting place where service members can connect to loved ones via Internet or phone, play a video game, catch a movie, have a snack or just put their feet up and relax.”
In 2014 more than 7 million service members and their families visited a USO center.
Show your support of the USO and celebrate the Fourth of July with your own frame.
Here’s how to get your USO Facebook Frame:
- Go to Profile Picture Frames
- In the #2 box to the right of your photo click the drop down menu
- Find “Causes” and select
- Scroll down to USO and select.

Happy 4th of July!
