How You can See Full Size Profile Picture of a Locked Facebook Profile


It happens to all of us when we want to see the full size profile picture of a person who is not in our friend list. We can see full size picture by clicking on the profile picture. But this works only if the profile picture is added as public. If the person has applied privacy options, no one other than friends will be able to see the full size profile picture. Sometimes we came on few profiles that has attractive profile picture (Yeah, profile of girls) but we cannot see it in full size.
