The follow-up Facebook viral trend to the "Change your profile picture to a cartoon character" trend is now one stating that the previous cartoon character trend was not to end child abuse, but was actually started by a group of pedophiles so that it would be easier for them to get added to children's Facebook pages. The concept is that a child will be more willing to accept a friend request from a profile if it has a cartoon character for it's profile picture.
ATTENTION: the group asking everyone to change their profile picture to a cartoon character is actually a group of pedophiles. They're doing it because kids will accept their friend request faster if they see a cartoon picture. It has nothing to do with any Child charities. IT'S ON TONIGHTS NEWS. Copy & Paste this on to your status - Let everyone know.

After some investigation it turns out this is all just a bunch of fooey. It's not true, and was never started up by any pedophiles. Like most Facebook viral statuses, just a little bit of common sense will go a long way. If you think about it, a pedo won't need the whole of Facebook to change their profile pictures to cartoon characters when they could just do it themselves for their own profile during a sent friend request to a child.
