Not to worry. Changing your avatar - no matter what picture you use - won't give hackers your information. People change their avatars and upload pictures on a regular basis. It makes no difference whether you put a giraffe or a picture of yourself. (Unless you download a picture from a site that has malware.) But don't worry - changing your profile picture to a giraffe pic doesn't give hackers any personal information from your account.

Yeah, I didn't read the article - and the comments - until after I'd changed my pic. Yeah, it seemed a bit farfetched to think that hackers could clean out your bank account just by accessing your Facebook.

I think people like to rain on others fun...... scratchead 
From the article:


"However, according to a blog explaining the process of changing profile pictures, changing a profile picture to an image of a giraffe is not going to give hackers a user's password. It will also not make FB users targets for hackers.

However, users must be careful where they get the photo of the giraffe that they use. Netizens should make sure that the photo was not obtained from malicious Web sites."

Here's the riddle of the Giraffe. It's harmless game.

3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors. It's your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?

If, you get it right. You keep your profile picture. Got it wrong, you change your profile picture to a giraffe for three days. Someone, just make up the Hacker can access your account, when changing your profile picture. Probably, that person got it wrong, didn't want change their profile picture to giraffe. Someone had a cow, for nothing. I got it right. I still change my profile picture. So, I could join the giraffe people in a group, that I'm in, over at facebook. Their was a donkey riddle and a hippo riddle as well. I did the donkey riddle, got it wrong. Just look for donkey picture. Did not do the hippo riddle.

Laughing All these animals! I can't keep up!Yikes  Yeah, I stayed out of this one, lol. Thanks for posting the riddle...I was kind of curious. And I really don't see how there's a 'right answer' to this, but I'm not good at riddles anyway.Whistle

I give the answer to the riddle. It's the eyes. Some say, it's the door. But, actually your eyes. Since, you have to open them, to answer the door.


The giraffe pictures are dying down.

A lawyer friend of mine on Facebook argues that the answer SHOULD be the door, because the riddle seems to be asking what the first thing is that you'd open AFTER your parents ring the bell.

Sometimes riddle has 1 or 2 answers. That's what people get confused by.
