We all have heard of the permanent notification bar of Facebook which appeared for some Android users last year and popped as a result of no activity. Facebook has been known to test its upcoming features before release and this is how it managed to test the notification bar by making it visible for a few users. Facebook comes back with the features once again and this time it comes with an upgrade. The upgradation will allow your profile picture to be posted next to Facebook's familiar icons.
Similar to the way it appeared earlier on, this time around the notification bar stays in Android's notification tray regardless of whether you have a new message in your inbox or a friend request. Where this part of the feature remains similar, the major difference will be seen when you will find your picture staring back at you every time you will access this notification tray. Since we are aware of Facebook's habit to test their features before official releases, we should know that this bar is only available to a few Android users at the moment. If any one of you ends up getting the feature and you are tired of seeing your picture then all you have to do is click on the "i" icon to disable the bar via the Settings page.
