Picture perfect profile pics! August 19, 2009

It would seem that our profile pictures on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites are starting to carry an increased weight in how we want to be perceived by the world!

Do you go for a funny shot, serious shot, and moody model-esque shot? Do you have mates in the photo with you or not? Or do you choose a generic picture, favorite celeb, cartoon character or cute ‘Googled’ pet to be your profile pic?

Perfect Profile Picture

Perfect Profile Picture

After going through my friends on Facebook I found I have all the above in my friends list (including a few that aren’t 100% identifiable as anything at all!)

So, when Contagious reported about Samsung’s new viral campaign ‘Beware the Angles’ I had to pay attention!

The campaign is aimed at the growing obsession with having that ‘hot’ profile pic that so many of our social networking friends have tried to achieve (they’re easy to spot, let’s face it!)

Check out the 6 different ‘hot’ shots here and look out for the awesome twist when they reveal how they took the shots! This is a brilliant campaign from Viral Factory and does a pretty good job of promoting the new Samsung camera while there at it!
