Thread: #1 Reason people post pictures online.

  1. #1

    Default #1 Reason people post pictures online.

    To get compliments.

    That's how I feel, there's nothing wrong with it though. I don't lash against anyone who posts their pics online, but they would be lying if they say they didn't want compliments. I'm sure everyone who've posted a pic hopes they get a "Hey, U R h4wt!" But eh.

    Agree or disagree.

    yeah kinda.
    i guess you mean pics of themselves? i guess if you put a pic of a sheep that'll get a lot of compliments!
    i like to know what people think of me i suppose.....i wouldn't believe anyone if they did say Hey, U R h4wt!

    Trust No one

    Hahaha. No, I've never posted a picture of myself expecting some kind of comment like that. If I get one I don't take it very seriously.

    I disagree. When you've been at the same forum for 2+ years or so, it's just nice to know what someone looks like.

    Is it the number one reason? Probably. Afterall, the internet is a cesspool of narcissism. EoFF not so much, but the internet in general, yes.

    Lots of people post pictures without fishing for compliments. It's just that there's an overwhelming number of people who do just that.

    Seriously, I bet everyone is familiar with the webcam-boobie shot, it's like a friggen epidemic.

    Yeah, I think some people misunderstood the title.

    It's not the only reason people post pics, but it's probably the reason for most folks. There's nothing wrong with it. But that's primarily why people post picks IYAM.

    It's cool to have a face to associate with a name instead of having to guess.

    Agree ^_- Sure, that's not the only reason, but that's one of the reasons for most people. Obviously no one wants to hear, "Omg you're so ugly" after they post a picture. And it's not a bad thing, it's just human nature to want to hear good things about yourself.

    Speaking of,

    If it makes you feel any better, I think you're all ugly.
