A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND COMMENTS
Looks may not be everything, but they’re pretty important on Facebook. It’s no secret that the first place most of us look when we visit someone’s Facebook profile is their photo. A new study found that we actually judge people’s attractiveness based on the comments on their profile pics left by other users. Experts say that when measuring someone up, we rely on other people’s opinions to help form our judgments. The study also found that people tend to prefer profile photos that feature people in action over simple head shots.
Do you judge people’s attractiveness based on other people’s opinions/judgments? Why or why not? Do your friends’ comments influence your choice of Facebook profile picture? What kind of profile pictures do you prefer?
