how can I set an animated GIF file as my Facebook backdrop?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone

            I have an animated picture file which is in GIF format that I wish to use a backdrop for my Facebook homepage.  With this interest in mine, could someone provide the necessary steps for accomplishing this goal?

            I look forward to reviewing any suggestions given to this personal interest.

            Thank you

Facebook will let you post animated GIFs to the News Feed by pasting a link to one in the status update box.
You are not able to upload GIFs from your computer or mobile device, nor does Facebook let its Pages post animated GIFs yet.
If you try to upload an animated GIF from your computer or mobile device, Facebook will convert it to a still image.

Hello and Good Evening

             Thank you for giving me the heads up on this.  I hope Facebook will permit using animated GIF's as a backdrop to one's homepage at some point in the early future.
