I read this this other day and it did make me think, mainly because my facebook profile picture is not a picture of me but the very funny Terry Tibb's from FaceJacker.

I do find the whole thing quite interesting, even looking at the profile pictures on this site as well.

It is quite funny as I spent a disproportionate of time picking my pictures for Twitter / Linkedin etc, but just flung up one of me with my 2yr old son on Facebook.

The difference to me is that I use my Facebook profile fairly strictly as a friends / family communication tool but use others, such as Twitter, to network / generate leads / spread the good name and all - and therefor don't want to spread pictures of my son all over tinterweb.

Having said that, the picture of me and my son would probably be less off-putting than the ugly mug that people are exposed to on my twitter account :crying:

My personal profile picture is a rare photogenic picture of me as I rarely take a good picture. It was taken quite a few years ago as well ;) I think I am desperately trying to hold on to my youth!
On my business facebook page I just rotate pictures of tiaras being worn.

Interesting topic. I think most people do agonise over what picture to use as their profile. It's like meeting someone for the first time - you're not going to do it in your PJs and Ugg boots.

My personal profile pic on Facebook is a cartoon version of me, which I paid someone to do.

For my Twitter and LinkedIn profile pics I used a portrait (sounds rather grand) that my niece drew of me, which I love and everyone tells me it's a great likeness. I get a lot of comments on it, because it's so different, and helps me stand out.

And I think I just look better through someone else's eyes...

Love your rotating tiaras Dizzy Diza - that's a great idea :)

Thank you Nicky. I like to think it keeps peoples interest to see a different tiara picture on my business page.

I can now say that I have an up to date picture of myself on my personal profile. I was at a wedding down south and I got hubby to take a picture of me wearing one of my designs and a necklace. Again it is a rare photogenic picture of me and if I say so my self I dont look to bad for some one that has recently had their 47th birthday ;)

Definitely a great marketing idea Dizzy D :)

I don't know what your personal FB is, but judging from the top of head you don't look 47 ;)
