Why must facebook profile photos be so small?

Is there any way around Facebook having me crop a profile picture?

I often wish to display  a profile pic of my face and upper body. And for the selfie to remain  closeup. But  Facebook  has me edit and crop the picture  in a way which part of my head is chopped off  Or  you can't see past my shoulder line.

    If you want to show a bigger you, make it your COVER photo. Still not convinced? Get your large half-body photo and make it smaller to fit fb's requirements for profile pics.

    This made me remember that one time I demonstrated how to make a 1x1" whole body photo.

    There is no way around it its the Size Restriction that Facebook has for Profile Photos

    Honestly, as long as you have a semi-professional clear photo of yourself, who cares how small it is?

    The sizes in FB are fixed. If you want face and upper body, use smaller photo.
