What Does Your Facebook Profiler Say About You?

You didn’t think it said anything? You were wrong.

THE FACEBOOK PHOTO is the crowning glory of any profile – you want to display yourself at peak attractiveness, all while making your life look as fun as possible. It’s tough. We all know that.

But far from just making you look aesthetically pleasing, your profile picture speaks volumes of your personality. Here’s what the 12 main types of profilers say about the person in them.

1. The selfie

“Facebook is about friends? Pah! Facebook is about ME.”

2. The professionally-taken headshot

“I’m an actor/singer/model. Someone hire me.”

3. The ‘arty’ shot

You had some fun with the negative effect on a photo editor! Look at you! (You look scary.)

4. The ‘loads of pals’ picture

5. The holiday snap

Riding an elephant in Thailand, road-tripping across the US, or simply lounging with a cocktail by a pool – the holiday profiler screams SMUUUUUUUG.

6. The ‘LOOK AT MY KIDS’ photo

You appear to have forgotten you are actually your own person, and not your kids. There there, it’s OK.

7. The picture of you in your Halloween costume

Oh, you’re some gas ticket, aren’t you?

(If it’s of you in last year’s costume: MOVE ON.)

8. The picture of you doing something MENTAL

Planking, climbing on something you shouldn’t, getting rowdy in a fast food establishment.

You act out because you want attention. It’s OK. We understand.

9. The couple photo

“We’ve been together for a while now, so it’s a two-for-one deal. Sorry, other friends.”

10. The #TBT

Just admit it straight out. You don’t want to grow up.

11. The picture of you with an alcoholic beverage

“Drinking is cool, right? Drinking something in my profiler shows I’m a fun, chill kinda guy that knows how to party, right? RIGHT?”

12. The car/movie character/cartoon

Is this car yours? Does it really, really represent you, and your life, and your hopes and dreams? Really?!

You’re a lost cause.
