    Hi,

    In short I have a Facebook photo that was uploaded to my timeline that I want to make my profile photo.


    However, I don't want to lose the comments as they are sympathy comments from family and i'd really like them to remain on the picture.

    Is there any way of doing this?


    thanks

    Yeah your profile picture is actually post to your timeline so it'll still be there even if you upload a new photo .

    I don't think its possible, 2nd best thing is to snap a photo of the timeline photo with the comments on the side so you get both the photo and the comments, if you care that much about it, otherwise, just upload the photo normally, you'll have the comments on your timeline to look at. You'll end up changing the photo in like 1-2 months anyways so it doesn't really matter.

    There's no way around it. The comments won't just 'move' to the profile pic. They will stay on the timeline photo.
