Facebook has created some unforeseen issues for me that I refer to as Facebook and Bad Photos. These photos fall into two categories.
The first are pictures of myself that I do not like because I think that I look bad in them. By that I mean that I don’t like the way I look because I am making a face or they make me look like I need to lose 763 pounds.
The second category are those pictures in which I am doing something that I do not think ought to be broadcast to the world. Hypothetically speaking someone could post a picture of me from 1992 in which it is clear that I and my companions are inebriated.
Now I am not saying that such a photo exists and if it did I would point out that when I am tired my eyes are red and I walk around with a goofy grin on my face. But if it did, I’d probably ask that it not be included.
As for the first category, well that is a different issue altogether. I am relatively photogenic. Most of the time I am happy with my pictures but lately there have been a few posted in which I cringe.
Perhaps you can blame it upon illusions of grandeur, in my head I always envision myself in my early twenties and I no longer look like that. I don’t think that I look terrible, but I admit to being less than pleased with the current state of affairs.
What do you think? Have friends/relatives/acquaintances posted pictures of you online that you are unhappy with? Fill us in, inquiring minds want to know.
