Zoom Profile Pictures on Facebook

Update February 11, 2010: This article refers to Facebook at the version of February 2009 and may be obsolete now.

This tiny bookmarklet enables you to zoom profile pictures on Facebook. This is interesting especially in search results on profiles you are not allowed to see.

To install the bookmarklet, just bookmark the following link, e.g. drag it with the mouse to your other bookmarks:

  • Zoom
    Edit: Apparently, WordPress doesn’t allow me to insert bookmarklets into a post. To make this one work, you need to bookmark it as described and add javascript: in front of it, so that it looks like javascript:function%20zoo ....

Now just open a Facebook page with small profile pictures – for instance, search for somebody – and click on Zoom.

Before zoom:


After zoom:
