Top 10 tips for online profile pictures
Since the Jewish New Year is almost upon us I thought we should all take time to refresh your photos in your online profiles. We are all one year older so a new picture should reflect how we CURRENTLY look like. We may all have that favorite photo of ourselves from a few years back (or more!!) but it should not be a photo in your profile.
A few rules to follow for pictures for your profile:
1- Try to find clear pictures.
2- You should have both a close up and a full length picture.
3- Try to put up the maximum amount of pictures that you are allowed. It gives a better idea of what you look like.
4- Try to at least put up nice pictures of yourself. I know this may seem obvious to you but I am telling you that at least half of the profiles I encounter have people with pictures that I don’t think should be part of their profile.
5- Ask for advice from either matchmakers or friends for which pictures to upload.
6- Smile!! I really don’t like when people put up pictures where they are not smiling or look like they just had the worse day in their life.
7- Stay away from glamour shots. They do not accurately reflect what you will look like when you meet face to face.
8-Dont put up pictures with other people. If you really have no choice then you should Photoshop the people out of the picture.
9-Dont put up pictures that are too small that when someone opens them they can barley see you.
10-Be yourself! Find pictures that accurately reflect how you look like on a day to day basis.
