The Global Shape Facing operator creates planes. If you pick a camera, the planes will be aligned to it. (Either parallel to the camera's plane or looking at the camera's point).
What did you expect when you added it?

oh i just figured out that it was by mistake that i added the global shape i didnt mean to add it, but basically in order for you particles to render they need to have a shape node correct?

yes. they need some shape to render. the dots and ticks and whatnot are just for display in viewport only (generally faster than geometry!)
