Employers often looking for information about potential workers in Social Networks. Let’s analyze of mistakes that people makes in Social Networks when they place profile photo.
Profile-photo: photo of another people (for example, some famous people photo or photo of any man in girl’s profile); some picture instead of photo; your photo modified beyond recognition by graphics editor; your face closed by your hands.
You think: I very enigmatic and creative people!
But people think about you: can I trust this people? It is secretive people! And he/she don’t want play the game.
Better. If you will place picture or other people photo instead of yours, then site moderators will delete such picture. Try to place your photo. You can modify it but not hard. You can (for example) correct color of the clothes or remove shadow. Closed face (by hands, tissue or sunglasses) subconsciously shows that you hide something. Therefore, try not to close your face and look into the lens.
Profile-photo: low quality photo. Unsuccessful pose or camera angle. You turn away or look back. Shadow on your face. Very small photo. Picture blurred.
You think: Whatever! This is only photo! I looked better in a life.
People think about you: This people is dissatisfied with the way he look. He is a notorious. He dislike oneself.
Better: Don’t place your bad photo to profile. Try to find something better. If you have not good quality photos, don’t hurry. In this case, go without photo first time, but make it at soon. Photograph one another with your friends or your darlings. If you think that you are not photogenic, then you may to contact with studio or professional photographer.

Better. To place your latest photo is not necessarily (if you don’t like your latest photo). Choose from your adult photos from that life period, when you felt yourself confidently, successful, happily. For example, the photo during love, successful holiday’s trip or some any banquet. You can simply to choose one of your favorite photos. Better if your looks on photos have not difference from your looks at present time. But if you was photographed 10 years ago – make new photos.
