Discover What Your (Social Media) Profile Pic Says About You

I got sucked into a little profile hopping today. It happens from time to time when I am on Facebook updating my page or profile and I come across something interesting in the news feed – and then I’m off. Clicking on one profile and then the next; all based on the profile picture. Whenever I finish a profile hopping session, I think to myself what the profile picture really means. How important it is. And how many people take for granted that thousands of people are making a snap judgement of you based solely on your profile picture.

As I normally do when I get into deep thought on a subject, I Googled it; and came across this cool infographic from that describes the 10 most common profile pics and their meanings.

After reviewing the 10 most common profile pics, I wasn’t really sure which category my profile pic would fit into. I mean, I think it’s an excellent representation of me and is giving my social media contacts a great first impression. But, this isn’t about me (well, not what I think about myself anyway); it’s about you. It’s about what you think of me based solely on what you see in my profile picture.
