I think that they are all so beautiful that they are afraid of stalkers...
Or are they all celebreties with nothing better to do with their lives, they cant go out or they will be recognised so they hide behind pictures of cute kittens and chat endlessly online!!!
I actually quite like those furry adorable little creatures.... they make for instant warmth!
(And Kirsten, although I have to admit that cute raccoon had grown on me, I'm quite amazed to see what you actually look like: beautiful I must say!)
None of the above! I hate most pics of myself but all three of our cats are very photogenic. It really is that simple.
Oh, and I nurse a fond (but almost certainly deluded) hope that having an animal as my avatar means that people are more likely to respond to what I actually write, rather than filtering it through a mental image of what they think my views are based on my IRL picture. If that makes sense.
yes, but then, I have carefully examined your cat who genuinely reflects your personality and this cat is telling me you are kinky as can be and it is a closely guarded secret. this cat says you are very hard to understand, that you sometimes just fall down on the floor and pound it with your fists - the cat wants to know why that is! what if pets could talk ? well, they can! even through pictures!
Yeah! I am starting to wonder if she is some sort of cat whisperer?
did you know that it is really the animals who talk to me who do the whispering? well, actually they just send the thoughts, usually there aren't any real words involved, straight to my mind! It's sometimes very disconcerting! to say the least.
Well thanks! I really look like but I was afraid that people would think I was a vulture. lol
You're right I am just a celebrity hiding behind a mask, this is who I really am:
But don't tell anyone!
yes, darling, that is exactly why I've been a duck and a kitten lately - now this new one is closer to the way I really look!
After spending so long as a baby raccoon I gotta say it was nice getting the attention for being such a cute furry face! I started to wonder if my profile pic was getting me followers
Now its me on there and I have had some nice compliments so I guess I can still enjoy the attention
yes, you are really cute! much better than that little raccoon - and if I genuinely had that hair I would post my pic all over the place!
Where do you get your hair done? I want to see if i can get that same look??
a small fan pointed up from the floor works - also let it grow while you sit in a dark room in front of the puter for 10 hours a day, don't bother to brush it
oh, you were talking to kirsten probably - anyhow . . .
I'm too shy to talk to kirsten.......
No one has ever introduced us, and she's...... cute...
don't worry about it - just act positive and confident - oh, wait, are you married? You ARE aren't you! well, people here frown on married hubbers flirting - but I don't give a rat's ass if you flirt your shirt off!
hmmmmm. flirt the shirt off . hmmmmmmm.
I am married to so I guess it don't matter so long as its just for fun, nothing more! My hubby flirts with the ladies who work at our local climbing center, I would be offended if I wasn't flirting with them too!
I was told acting shy would bring out the mothering instinct in the woman ...... either that or she'll beat you... either way I win..lol
As to the shirt..... laying naked on my sofa....(maybe I shoud use an animal picture, or you should think of one rather than the image that i may have just conjured into your mind)
Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off and wee'd just a bit
I have not been hugely active of late, been busy keeping busy with 2 new sites to totally obsess over Life is good when you have stuff to obsess over
The furry creature was before my time.... nice to meet the real you ....
"not been hugely active of late"? is this a confession??
I have in the past spent so much time on the forums that I wonder if I shouldn't find a 12 step program for HP forum addicts! Honestly I should be working on a hub now! so close to 100 too! and unpublished hubs I am at 99 but I get way to hooked on the forums! Maybe I should get myself banned
I had to work hard for that hair!
Spent ages with it up in curlers, loads of products to fix the curls in place and by the end of the day it was still flat as could be
I love curly hair and more then half the perms I have had have fallen out after a week!
Lucky so and so's with naturally curly hair
I "look like a man"
gotta love Mad TV
there is a lot to be said for furry and cute, but then, there are a lot of gents around here who respond real well to wild and dominating! I like to switch it up now and then, if you get my drift!
smart move, if you ask me...!
(btw. if I was to give an award to someone for the most amazing avatars, it would be you! )
these threads are the only place I have to act out, my job requires that I stay calm and polite at all times! arghhhh! for a personality like mine that is really stultifying! So I get manic every few days and spend a day quipping and flirting and being as nasty as I can be within HP policy and it saves my freeky life! no lie. why am I telling you all this? no idea
There are a lot of new faces at HubPages in the last 6 months. However, I would like to point out that there are plenty of hubbers who use avatar pictures other than their own self portrait.
There are plenty of people who use pictures of themselves, but also change their picture from time to time.
I've created two different, but similar hubs so as to help them promote themselves. Many had to give me a picture to be on/in the hub.
The category to find my hubs on the Women Writers In HubPages Community can be found under Spreading HubLOVE.
If you are looking for real pictures of most of the women who participate in the forum community, then you can see them on the hub.
oh no Cags! You just let the cat out of the bag...!
Yeah I always liked the idea that my real pic was out there but folks had to WORK to find em
looked at Cags' Hub, wow, there are some real honeys out there.. is that why you all hide behind cute kittens and puppies....
Where is the men's version?
If there is not one, who is going to do it???
Would anyone check it if it was there??
hehe...yeah, I'd give anything to look like one too...! Hey any cute furry avatars for spare anyone?
with some makeup and some stick on fur you are the spitting image of Bootsy!
hey, tell me what you see when you scroll up past those two images really fast!

Why do some users use celebrity pictures as their profile picture?
by Arby Bourne 11 years ago
Sure, this topic has been discussed before - but I want a fresh take. So, I'd like to ask the following questions~ a) do you use a picture of yourself or do you prefer an avatar? (and why, if you care to elaborate), and,b) what assumptions, if any, do you make about an author from viewing his/her...

Many have photos of themselves while many don’t. Just wondering why many don’t include their photos in their profile. Some have images of celebrities. I feel some are even pretending to be of the opposite gender. What are your views about this?

Has any one noticed a large amount of followers to profile pictures that are the sexiest?
by TINA V 13 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 if...

Do you think that profile pictures are subject to ethnicity, gender and age bias?I for example have my bias towards writers with a profile picture that shows that they are a bit older - I just believe that ultimately lifetime equals experience that can only be beneficial for writing hubs... I...
