Putting up a picture will (according to what I've seen)... Pros: --Make some people act slightly friendlier or more personal to you. (There is more of a personal connection). --I feel like a picture also make people take your opinions a bit more seriously for whatever reason. --You can form a more personal connection with other people faster. It is kind of a start of a conversation.
Negatives: --More creeps. More creeps will see the photo and think "ooh girl. I better go try and quench my thirst." Granted, you can block people and better yet, report them, if they continually harass you. --A slight chance of stalking. I haven't encountered any stalkers yet (well at least that I know of 😅), but I know a couple of my GAG friends who have had some creep try and stalk on them. Like tracking down facebook, and creeping on them there. They can't really do much to you but it can creep some people out for sure.
ON THE WHOLE... It is really a judgement call. How creepy are creeps to you? Is a more personal connection more important to you then the chance of more creeps appearing (creeps will appear regardless tho of a pic or not)? ----------
Personally, I have a photo of myself because even if someone happens to find me on facebook, they can only do so much to me. Nothing stops complete strangers from going on my facebook and creeping on my profile anyway. I like the personal connection I feel a profile pic brings and frankly I didn't know what else to put as my profile pic haha.
No it is not. I know several girls who got traced back to their facebooks. Guys sent horrible horrible messages to them and their family and friends. Some people had their pictures stolen and posted here. Guys here WILL download your picture and use it without your permission for whatever kind of post they feel like.
My suggestion is to use something from media or history or use an avatar maker like the ones on http://www.rinmarugames.com/ or just stick to the default images.
It's kinda safe, I mean, they can save it, but they can do that with Facebook too, so it's as safe as FB, or perhaps more safe.
Just look into all the information that is embedded in pictures... then that will prevent you from sending them from someone via email. However if you post one on your profile it can be used to find your social media accounts, full name and other things depending on how savvy the person is with computers.
It is but it also isn't. The internet is never safe. I had mime on here for a while but it kinda covered my face. I never got pointed out. I just recently changed it because this picture of a cougar is so awesome!
It's safe but you will get like 100,000,000 private messages from most guys and about 50-300 guy following you. It's so annoying because you will have to block many every single day and it's not going to stop. Believe me i've done this before then I just decided to delete my personal pic and i choose to use normal photos on here to avoid talking to some creeps and they actually stopped. Unless this is what you want go ahead.
it's safe to put your profile on gag as long as you don't give personalinformation out but if you find your getting weird messages from creeps or perverts then u could change your picture and ignore the people who give creepy weird messages
