The author discusses the importance of one's choice of user image in online social media networks. He argues that the photograph one chooses says a great deal about that person. Different types of images or avatars that people choose to represent them online are described, such as pictures with famous people, cartoon characters or pet photos. The author states that using a corporate logo as an avatar is the worst choice of all. He recommends using a personal photo on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
