Do you feel comfortable showing images of yourself on the internet?

As for me, I can say I'm not a big fan. Are you? I'd rather type in google something I like, save that image and let that be my avatar. Do you prefer your avatar being yourself?

no...i do not feel comfortable doing so. like you, i prefer to use another image as an avatar. it just so happens that Homer Simpson is my hero...so that's why i use his image to represent me

Hi mario: I think that there are so many reasons why people prefer not to show their private pictures and I think that's a wise decition. Homer Simpson is not a heroe for me but I like him and he's very funny I think that's a good introduction to yourself as a Mylot friend. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO

It depends on the quality of my picture. I wouldn't want to post a picture of myself with bedhair or something lol. I'd prefer it if it was a picture of me, if not an avatar I made, because I don't like grabbing pictures of the internet.

Hi nel zephyr: I agree with you. I think I'm very selective with my pictures because I don't look pretty good in most of them. I don't know why, it's something in my smile that don't look good. So I have to select only the best pictures because I don't want to look stupid in any of them. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO

That is true lol. If I was to take a picture of myself and publish it online, I'd want to give a good impression. Max

it depends on the person with whom you are chatting. also for guys I guess its no big deal, but gals should take care and try not to show their images to any one stranger!!!

Hi Maxim: First of all I don't take many pictures of myself but I upload them on my facebook account to share them with my friends. They are all normal pictures, for example, I take pictures of myself when I'm doing something important in my professional life or when I'm traveling. Thanks for asking us this question. Have a nice day. ALVARO

No, I don't feel comfortable with strangers looking at my photos as it is not safe, so I do not upload them on these kinds of websites. However, I do regularly upload pictures on facebook, which only my friends can see.

since the day i started mylot i always put the picture of my son. i am a proud father. i also upload a few of our photos here at mylot for you also get earnings from that. it all depends on what photo is that. all the pictures we are taking is a picture of celebrations and happy times. the first time i took pictures of not so happy was during the season when the typhoon hit us and it flooded. specially the house of my mother that the flood raised up to the roof. so i dont think there is something bad about putting our own pictures as avatar, and there is nothing bad too if you dont like to put your photo as well. it depends on what we prefer. nobody here will force you to do, if you feel confident on not putting your photo then its okay. welcome to the wonderful world of mylot and good luck.

I love taking pictures and also capture them as memories and sometimes I like to display them too as I have some in my mylot pictures, and I have also chosen an avatar which is not quite well displayed but still is mine.

i dont mind about that^^ i just put simple pictures of myself in my profiles not naked ones so i think is ok as long as we dont go too far^^ but sure it depends of the sites where we put pics. there are some websites where some people use your pics and pretend to be you like is stealing your identity we must be careful with it sure and also we must be careful with some perverts too :( anyway maxim is good that you put your avatar and if you then become good friend of someone can show him your real face^^
