I don't mind uploading my photos on social networking sites. I just have to make sure that my profile is protected from "crazy" peeps. So yeah, guess we just have to be careful which pic to upload and which friend invite should we approve.

And be careful on what you put in that shoutout box also :-)

I won´t network with anyone if they do not have an image - I prefer to network with people that can actually be bothered to complete their details, otherwise I just think "spammer"

Yes we should all be careful but I certainly would add an image, yes

I think uploading pictures is safe as long as you do it responsibly and you ensure that the pictures are not offensive or too revealing. This is why I don't add people I don't know on social sites like Facebook too.

I think this is a dangerous one, especially for kids and girls - if its a cyber media that you are intereacting with and using then why would you need to??

There's a difference between posting a small "avatar" type image for your profile and posting full-sized photos of yourself and your family/friends to online photo albums.

Given the size and nature of those images, it's very unlikely anybody else could use a photo avatar for anything particularly nefarious.

The other pictures, though... well, I don't know that there would be much demand for hacked photos of non-celebrities. I could be wrong, of course -- perhaps there's a thriving market out there somewhere. But I do know there have been cases of people losing their jobs (or not getting invited to job interviews) because of photos they posted to Facebook. As with anything online, it pays to think before you post.

I think i agree with you, since its really necessary for oneself to have a privacy for themselves and also do not upload their photos, which can be manipulated in something manner also. Its better to have one own privacy with oneself.
