Most social media sites seem to be following the "let's cut the corners off all the profile pictures" fad. I don't like the way this looks. At all.

Is there a way to fix them, perhaps using a Greasemonkey script? I did quite a bit of searching but couldn't find what I was looking for. All you'd have to do is disable the border-radius property in CSS, which seems pretty simple.

There's no better place to be a dinosaur than on a Mario fansite.

Rounded Corners Avatar Shy-Guy looks surprisingly cool. Instagram's switch to rounded corners totally broke my profile picture, though!

I don't find this as much of an issue anymore. It ruined so many good avatars of mine, but nowadays I do a circle crop check of my avatars before I upload them. I can understand how it'd be annoying, though!

I wrote a GreaseMonkey script for it!

EDIT: Updated it

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name        Twitter and Instagram Squared Avatars
// @namespace   HDSquareAvatars
// @description Squares avatars on Twitter and Instagram
// @include     https://twitter.com/
// @include     https://www.instagram.com/
// @version     1
// @grant       none
// ==/UserScript==

document.querySelector('head').innerHTML =
  document.querySelector('head').innerHTML
  +
  '<style type="text/css">._pg23k,.avatar,.Avatar,.DashboardProfileCard-avatarImage,#user-dropdown-toggle { border-radius:0 !important; }</style>';
;

Argh you're not the only one. I'll probably never warm up to it. Twitter had it right with the slightly rounded corners and then they went and strapped themselves to that bandwagon.

Besides ruining lots of avatar opportunities, I rely on background shape and color cues to tell people apart by avatar. Faces all mostly look the same to me. Crop a face to a circle, and you just threw away all those negative space cues.

HylianDev: Thanks for making profile photos great again.

R II: I totally agree. Twitter's rounded rectangles looked great and were far better than the new design.

I would be less annoyed by the Make Everything a Circle fad if it wasn't everywhere (and playing a role in making all social networks look the same.)
