Your Facebook Friends Are Posting Ugly Pictures of You On Purpose

Say What!? 9

FacebookYears ago I changed my Facebook privacy settings to hide photos I'm tagged in. I just didn't like having to police my own profile and slightly freak out if a horrible picture was posted. Call me over-concerned, I'm OK with it.

One would think friends would have each other's back when it comes to posting heinous pics, right? Well, a recent survey says that, actually, they don't.

Get this: about one-fourth of women surveyed by photo website MyMemory admitted to having tagged unflattering photos of their friends on Facebook. It gets worse though! If one of their galpals asked them to remove the ugly snapshot, a fifth of them WOULDN'T do it!

Seriously, is this what social networking has come to!? Legitimate sabotage?

It's funny, don't you think? It really brings to light a big purpose of social media -- self promotion.

Follow me here on this one: a big function of being on Facebook and other social sites is staying in touch with people you haven't seen in a while. Because of that, you want your profile to give off the best image of yourself. That image isn't exactly boosted when horrible photos are added to your feed, you know what I'm saying? 

So essentially this survey makes it seem like women, no excuse me -- FRIENDS, are trying to make themselves look better than one-another online? Can't say I'm surprised. Personally, I try not to do it to my best girls. For now, I'm gonna stick to my conviction that if someone's putting up "bad" photos of me, it's an accident, and when all else fails -- that's why I keep 'em hidden.

Have you ever put up bad photos of friends on Facebook? Have they done it to you?

Yes and it pisses me off to no end. Some ppl shouldn't be allowed to have a camera in their hand. They put up the worst photos, all the photos they take and they take photos every time we get together. Every time. What is that? So to resolve that, I get together with them no more!

During the Orient young bulls are tested for that battle arena within a sure manner. Every is brought for the ring and allowed to attack a picador who pricks them with a lance. The bravery of every bull is then rated with care based on the number of occasions he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting on the blade. Henceforth will I realize that every day I'm tested by life in like manner. If I persist, if I carry on to consider, if I carry on to charge forward, I'll succeed.

Well.. first of all if a "friend" posts your unflattering image and won't remove it per your request then the only option is to do the same and then ask again.

Sometimes our friends see us as beautiful even when we're not I hate my chin and teeth but my loved ones aren't focused on that one hated bit. I know because I posted a beautiful pic of my sister her daughter and my baby all beautiful but all my sister saw was her tummy I only saw her smiling face

who cares if you have an ugly photo, it doesn't matter, nobody cares. most of my photos are ugly ones, even my profile picture, because i don't give a crap if i look good or not.
