    Hi Amandeep,

    Do you think brands also should change their profile pic more often in FB unless otherwise they bring major changes in the logo?
    Nice infographic.

      For brands, who have logos set on their FB pages, I do not think they should do so very frequently on their brand page. However, they should keep on changing with as per the market demand but the frequent changes may not impress the public πŸ™‚ What do you think?
