(NEW YORK) -- If cartoon characters are starting to replace your Facebook friends, take comfort. You're not alone. The latest fad to go viral on the social networking site has users changing their profile pictures to images of their favorite childhood cartoon characters.
On Facebook, images of the Flintstones, Thundercats, the Smurfs and other classic cartoon characters are taking over users' news feeds.
Previous Facebook memes have asked users to replace their profile pictures with images of their celebrity doppelgangers and had women post the color of their bras to raise awareness about breast cancer. Another recent viral campaign asked women to post suggestive status updates, such as "I like it on the floor" and "I like it on the kitchen counter." The messages referred to where women like to leave their purses and were intended to raise awareness about breast cancer.
