Honestly, I shouldn't even care if people choose to feel better about themselves using 'beautiful people" as their profile picture. However, my father has once fell in to online dating, feeling he was a bit to old to find a woman. As a result, the woman he met ended up posing as another woman and did not look how he thought she would be. Yeah, looks aren't everything, but the lying and the insecurities became the main problem. In my opinion, the woman he actually met wasn't even bad looking, she just probably felt insecure.
Point that I'm getting to is that yes. You might be insecure. Good for you (well, not really). But I don't understand why you have the audacity of tricking other people with your little scheme to make yourself feel better (yeah, I'm employing my use of "you" but only figuratively).
It's one thing to use random pictures as your profile picture, such as FAMOUS celebrities (people who most people could detect), cats, food, etc. But it does not allow someone to be misled of that picture being of you.
I never really cared at first, about people making fake accounts... Because I don't encounter many in most of the social media accounts I use, since fake profiles are kind of irrelevant to most of my sites' purpose. However, I've noticed that on GaG, girls/guys who use another person's picture on their profile have the tendancy to get more opinions to their questions, followers, etc.
Selfish? Insecure? Bored? Just cause? Why?
