How do you not feel paranoid posting your pics on GAG?

So i rarely post any pics. i just show people i talk to regularly in pms. I just get all paranoid having my picture out there. what if people start doing stuff to it or try to catfish using it or something lol?

I know i may be blowing it out of proportion, but it's rare when i feel comfortable enough to actually post a real picture of me.

I knw tons of you have your pics up.. but how do you do it without feeling paranoid? :o

  • I used to. Then I asked myself: "What's the worst thing they can do with your picture?" I answered and then I thought "Oh. Alright then."

    "what if people start doing stuff to it"
    Made me lol :p.

    "try to catfish using it "
    I wouldn't care much to be honest.

  • 1. I don't think I've got the look to be used for someone to catfish
    2. I post the same photos I have here on my fb (boob and booty photos excluded)
    3. What people do with my photos is their own business, I ain't got time to worry 'bout that. 😝

  • I felt a bit paranoid. When I first joined this site. So I didn't have a pic. Then I said fuck it cuz I like when people have pics up so I can see somewhat of who they are? I don't know how to describe it but I like to be able to put a face to a (user) name.
    So since I like it and prefer it for others, I figure I may as well do it too.

    • That's right I have. But still. You know what I mean lol

    • ehh maybe someday when im in a really outstanding mood lol

  • Honestly I've been doxxed and had my nudes posted and stuff. On a different website not this one. So it's a little late to be worrying about that, heh... But uh... I don't put pics on here because I don't pass as cis basically. I only show to people I trust. I think 1 person here has seen my pics.

    • @mutedaisy Yeah I just don't want to shoe any part of me anymore. Not worth the stress I went through.

  • I personally do not give a fuck solely because whose pic isn't in the internet? People who are im instagram, Facebook, and etc gets catfish too. Even strangers in the street now a days take pic of you without knowing it or heck are recording you. Technology and catfishing is big, it isn't something out of the ordinary:p

  • Easy. I worry about too much shit as is with what's going on with my life, to give a damn what people do in/with theirs. If they want to jerk off to it, go ahead. If they want to throw darts at it, go ahead. If they want to use it to catfish, go ahead. It's just a picture.

    • Where you use someone elses photo on forums or other websites and pretend it is you

    • Okay, but what does that have to do with a catfish? Internet people come up with some weird terms haha.

  • I feel paranoid sometimes. That's why I don't no longer put pics on here. If I do, its only one or two pics that I show publicly. But, I feel confortable showing certain people it.

  • Posting a picture of yourself isn't that bad. It's telling others where you are from that people shouldn't be doing. Unfortunately, I've been guilty of doing so, but it was not until recently that I really thought about it and realized how bad it actually can be to give out that kind of information out.. Who knows how far those creeps out there will go. I mean for all we know, they're stalking some of us already o. O (I doubt that)
    The ladies should be the ones to fear the most because there are a lot of horny guys out there who are pretty desperate.

  • I never show my picture to anyone. I've only ever told my real first name to one other person here (in case it was missed, I say on my profile page that "K. Haskins" is actually the name of a character in a book I'm writing).

    I don't doubt my girlfriend could figure out who I am from reading my posts on here, as our situation is somewhat unique, but I'm careful never to post information which could lead to either of us being specifically identified, and I respect her enough not to reveal information she's shared in confidence.

  • I doubt anyone would use my picture for cat fishing and even so it would be the least of my concerns.

    People post more private stuff on their FB and other social media, including associating all their family members, posting pics of where they live and even tag themselves on GPS map every time they go out eating or something. Besides that, social media utilizes information of their users to evaluate tendencies/marketing strategies/demand etc etc for business purposes.

    Posting pics of yourself is just not enough for identity theft or even blackmail someone in an extreme situation. You should be worried if you access p*rn sites and pay for that kind of shit for example, or if you like visiting the deep web for illegal stuff (including drugs). Messing with that is quite dangerous.

      I don't really upload pictures to Facebook. Because my friends always comment things on them. xD

  • I am not putting a nude pictures of myself, and I do not put a lot of personal pics, just pics that give you an idea of what I look like. nothing too close or too bright and if you have a Facebook you have pics on there. And pedophiles are not after fit 20 year old men.

  • I did put my pic on here for a while but I removed it just incase someone in real life (however unlikely) was on here and looked at my profile. They'd know a lot of kind of personal information about me. I don't really care about catfishing. I'm not good enough looking for anyone to want to catfish my picture anyway.

  • Well I know I have the view (albeit probably stupid one) of what I don't know won't hurt me, if someone uses my hansome face for a catfish then it doesn't affect me, if some pedophile is whacking off to this picture then it doesn't affect me, see what I'm saying?

    • what if a pedophile is pretending to be you?

    • Hmm good point, well I'm no 10/10 so it's unlikely anybody would use me whenever there are so many other more attractive pepole out there ( Like modeling pictures, athletes, etc) I'm to average looking to be used a catfish, see what I'm saying
