Four Big Myths of Profile Pictures

The OKCupid blog measures the response rates of different types of photos on their site. Cool data!

I especially liked learning about the power of the "Facebook photo."


  1. Suw Charman reviews "Four Big Myths" posting on "The Social Enterprise"

  2. cool data if I'm looking for a date....not sure I would attempt to transfer the analysis over to a business scenario. Although it would be interesting to see. I suspect a photo on a linkedin page would drive more contacts than a similar profile without a photo. (wonder if I should smile?)

  3. Ok. Now I know what I should do in a profile picture. I do beg to differ on using a cell phone picture though. Most cameras in cell phones are 3 megapixals or more. Not that bad of quality.
