>Judging from the slew of searches for terms like “cartoon characters from the 80s,” “Ren and Stimpy,” and “Rugrats,” it looks like the Facebook profile trend we wrote about recently has officially exploded.
As we explained here, cartoon character profile photos are going viral on Facebook as users switch their photos to images of their favorite cartoons from their youth (See some of the characters here).
According to position messages being shared on Facebook, the switch to cartoon characters is part of an effort to combat child abuse.
The hot queries dominating Google Trends show that cartoon characters from Doug, Rugrats, Recess, Ren and Stimpy, Animaniacs, Aaahh! Real Monsters, Rocko’s Modern Life, Strawberry Shortcake, and Angry Beavers are among the most favourite options for the cartoon-ified Facebook profile pictures.
Will you change your profile picture? What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
