When you look for friends on MyEC or in other social networks do you check out
the grey heads? I don't. I usually skip over
people who haven't uploaded an avatar
. Making friends in a virtual world is already a bit strange. We can't shake hands or look into each other's eyes. However, when I can see your picture I feel like I know you a little better. I can put a face to a name
. Even if you choose a setting or a caricature
I will look at your MyPage. It will also make it more fun to chat.
If you change your picture from time to time, that's great too. I will get to know you even better. Your avatar
can tell a story. Today, I'll change mine to show what season it is in Canada. Unfortunately, it is no longer the season of the photo to the right.
**A slight "change of heart". On Facebook and other social networks it is very common to change avatars often. We love to see new pictures of our friends and family. However, on MyEC many of us do not know each other personally. If you want to make a lot of friends here it may be helpful to stick to one, recognizable profile picture. I need to find one that works well for me!
