Caricature

Whether it’s a photo of you on a night out or of you cuddling your newborn baby, the image you choose to represent you on social-networking sites says a lot about you

WHAT DO YOU think of you?

Although privacy as a concept is constantly being eroded, the message about what’s appropriate to post online and what is not is getting through to most nondigital natives. But what about the image you choose to represent yourself?

I choose the Caricature

“It’s kinder to play with one’s own image than someone else’s,” Using a caricature is a way of saying that your image isn’t rigid and that you don’t take yourself too seriously. Choosing a caricature can also be perceived as a form of distancing: you’re uploading a representation of yourself instead of an actual picture of yourself.

I love the blue glasses
