Do you use the same avatar for all your online sites?

For reasons best not known to me I keep changing my user ID and avatar for the various sites where I have a presence. Yes. For reasons best not known to me I do that. I wonder if there is any benefit having different avatars and different user ID What say?

I tend to use different avatars on other sites but the same username. I don't usually include my picture for safety reasons. I dont want to be known

I am not sure if I am liked everywhere and so change my user name to be on the safe side Never use your own photo.

You are free to use different user IDs and avatars for different sites. If you use different log in names and different avatars for different sites, it will be difficult for users to identity you, if they are also on those sites. I more or less keep same log in ID for different sites. There may be variation in avatars.

Your baby face has disappeared. Sometimes it is better if you are not identified.

@allknowing There were some friends here on mylot who used to make fun of my baby face avatar and in the newer version of mylot I found many who started using their real pictures as their avatars. I therefore, decided to change my baby face avatar to my real picture. I agree with you that anonymity does help.

No, I use different avatars. Sometimes I use my own painting, sometimes I use my son's photo, sometimes I use our photo and sometimes I use cats' photos.

I like it that way. It becomes boring to see the same avatar.

I may change the profile picture but mostly I am using my own name so don't think I will change the name.

I use my photos. Previously it was decades old when I was not that old! Now a recent one and that made people ask me - "are you the same guy"? siva

That is why I do not post my photo and I am sure the same question will be asked to me too (lol)

@allknowing I was looking for more respect as I thought wisdom is associated with age but that failed big time! My age was shown initially here but I managed to nix it soon after without much damage! siva

No I would always have a different one but I tend to use the same name.

I like to keep the same. That way if I am somewhere else others will know it is me. And, because I do not want too many photos of myself on the internet.
