What do you think about writers who don't put their photo as avatar in Hubpages?


I have seen many hubbers that have preferred anonymity and don’t use their photo as avatar in their profile. What do you think about this? Do you think it rests credibility to the author? Do you see any other disadvantages?

    Very interesting point of you, thanks for sharing it. Looking young also has a good side doesn't it? :) Now I am curious to read some of your hubs!

    I like your remark about being personal. I do find it nicer to communicate with a determinate person (even if it is only a photo) rather than a random image.

    I think having two different writing focuses would be the only reason that would make sense to me. Other reasons I respect but don't agree with. I like having my photo because I am proud of what I do and who I am. Thanks for your input ChristinS!!!

    I would rather see the face of the writer I am communicating with, but you are right, we are free to choose and that is fantastic.

    Thanks for your contribution. Through this question I have learned that the main reason why people don’t use their photo is fear, which is a bit sad.

    Thanks for your input. I respect your point of view but personally prefer to see the person I am communicating with (same thing that happens in face-to-face every day life, wouldn't like my interlocutor to be hidden behind a random image).

    Thanks for sharing. From the answers here, I see the reasons are mostly fear and security reasons, as well as trying to avoid prejudice and being judged by appearance.

    I agree, there certainly is a comfort in seeing who you are getting the information from, anonymity is a bit obscure and not so trustworthy from my point of view. Thanks for your answer.

    peachpurple, I would have never guessed that! Thanks for your answer. I also like to show my face because I am proud of what I write here and I like to stand by it.

    Thanks for your answer CJ Sledgehammer, interesting to read your point of view. I was thinking quite the opposite, the world is so big and we are so many people that anonymity is almost a given fact. Who the hell know who Claudia Tello is anyway!!!!
