There are a lot of different profile pictures that exist on social networking platforms, but sometimes they can get a little corny or too repetitive.
Mobile Photography is one thing, social media photography is only part of it. People can't help themselves by taking photos with their phone or point and shoot and popping it on Facebook as the profile shot. Out with friends, of course you are going to take photos and share on Facebook. At an event, surely you will take shots of the food, people and scenes to share on Twitter. This is all fun and great but put some thought into your shots and don't overedit unless it fits the story you are telling with the image.
My advice: get a photographer to take your head shot for social media profiles. Friends, family and associates will accept most anything you use to share your personality. However, these days potential employers and clients check your social media profiles. Who wants to hire the guy with two bottles of tequila stuck in his mouth? Save that kind of shot to share privately in circles or closed groups. - Nakeva
