I have noticed an interesting trend on the artreview.com website where certain people are befriended more than others. Those that are befriended the most seem to be those with the most striking, stand-out profile pictures that appear in the members box that has a tiled selection of profile picture thumbnails. Any thoughts??

I knew a thumbnail could reveal a lot about me to a geneticist.

How does a flattened pixelation of me reflect who I am?

I project, therefore others think I am...

Those that don't have profile photos are wasting a great opportunity for free publicity. Shame really..
obviously, it's natural selection :)
yes there are people here that aren't worthy of the respect we all are inclined to show each other, they lack the integrity needed to generate respect from their peers,

very cynical but probably true, profiles say a lot about folks
check mine out for instance
i am ever so slightly mad, but harmless and ultimately, that combination, i hope, shows how passionate i am for this subject and my practice

and william, I tend to agree.....put yourself under the spotlight or hedge your bets and remain anonymous......the choice is yours isn't it

i tend to show everything
(not all my work though, some of that is developmental and doesn't warrant exposure),

warts and all because effectively, any kind of duplicity etc will be found out

when u have the opportunity to show your true colours, then u should
you are one smart cookie......
love the cynicism....it shows a superb rationality
pleased to talk to u
check out my blog on my page
theodor adorno(neo-marxism) said this.....

"he who stands aloof runs the risk of believing himself better than others and misusing his critique of society as an ideology for his private interest. While he gropingly forms his own life in the frail image of a true existence, he should never forget it's frailty, nor how little the image is a substitute for true life. Against such awareness,however,pulls the momentum of the bourgeois within him.The detached observer is as much entangled as the active participant; the only advantage of the former is insight into his entanglement, and the infinitesimal freedom that lies in knowledge as such."
good eh?
beauty counts and there is nothing you can do against it
What if the photos not really that person.
