Does a person's profile picture influence if you will follow them or how you think of them?
No, I have never been influenced by someone else's profile picture. However, when people use the same one on different sites, it helps me to recognize them and know that I have already had contact with them. That is why I use the same one on all sites.
A Profile photo or image doesn't not sway me either way. I follow people whose work I enjoy and comment on. I am intrigued by some avatars and will check the articles at times.
I prefer that they use a real photo of themselves to help make a better connection, but sometimes I get to know them, anyway, through their writing, and I feel like I have a sense about them. Like you, DanaTeresa! Still, it would be nice to see a picture of you!
Not really unless their profile picture makes them look like they are trying way to hard to look "cute." For example -- somebody making duck faces at the camera, showing their abs...
It's kind of a turn off and it makes me take them a lot less serious.
Sometimes it does, for example I am well aware that my follower list will probably be cut by a fourth simply because i use this kitty as my avatar. But I like it so I'm not likely to change it even though it would probably work to my favor.
Definitely! If I see a profile photo that I think is distasteful or crude, I will NOT follow them. I prefer seeing a photo of the person themselves.
No, not at all. I like to follow people whose writing style I enjoy and want to read more of.
No this doesn't determine if I will follow them or not. I follow people for many reasons, there material, because I want them to read my stuff, & or also to show support of what they share-even if I can't keep up with all the people that I follow.
There picture does still speak volumes in some cases but oh well it's just a picture.Like some of my profile pictures have been misunderstood but I don't worry about it.
No. Absolutely not, I have never been influenced by someone' profile picture. When I see an e-mail in my mail, then I open it and see whether is there any new published article? if there is any, I read it and if I enjoyed reading the article, then I comment on that article and follow that person too, doen't matter who is he or she?
I have allowed myself to be swayed by that a time or two. The picture was obviously satanic and I am a Christian. Another time it was a swastika. Big no no.
I hope not! I spent 56 years making myself look like this. (actually 8 ) It's about time someone asked about me. Read my profile. Hagred says, " you are all beautiful!"

Are you likely to "follow" someone who doesn't have a profile picture posted?
by TINA V 9 years ago
I believe on the value of confidentiality of online writers. Hubpages do provide that leeway to all hubbers to decide the kind of profile pictures to post. However, no offense to anybody but I just felt disgusted to see a picture of a half—naked body in our forum. I am not sure...

I spend endless hours maybe two months ago redesigning my first photo so they would look good on the thumbnails on the profile pages and also on facebook. The latest change has made all that work a waste.A few of the thumbnails look better, but most now look off-kilter and have the text cut off. I...
