Social media giant, Facebook, has announced that anyone caught using a profile pic that's over 10-years-old or one that's been 'doctored' to make the account holder look passably attractive will be publically shamed and then banned for life

A spokesman for Facebook told a press conference yesterday: "Anybody trying to hoodwink other account holders into believing that they are much younger by displaying an avatar using a picture taken when they were in their late teens or early twenties will have their account permanently removed.

"The same thing applies to people who use filter-enhancing software to mask the fact that have more wrinkles than an elderly shar-pei dog and generally look like shit on a stick".

This move follows hot on the heels of last month's crackdown on fake profile pics by social media rivals, Twitter, who sent out death squads to gun down pathetically out-of-shape and ugly men who use pictures of bodybuilders as their avatar in a desperate attempt to get women to notice them.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
