New Facebook meme: Cartoon characters as profile pictures against child abuse

Monday, December 6, 2010

It's been in the news already. It started a couple of weeks ago on by Facebook users from Greece, who started posting pictures of their favorite childhood cartoon characters, simply wanting to remove all humans form Facebook profile pictures. It spread pretty quickly and Cartoon Network created a Facebook page called "Choose a Cartoon Character as Your Profile Picture for a Week" (Nov. 21 - Nov. 28). Since last week, the meme started to serve a greater purpose: raising awareness about violence against children or child abuse.

Here's an example:
