This is who I am online. If you really, really, want to, you can find out who I am in real life.

Why do I go online under a pseudonym? First, because I can. Second, to maintain a work/life balance: I don't speak for my employers, they don't speak for me, and we're very happy that way. Third, while I have some great friends online, I don't need for the world to know my every secret. In short, an online pseudonym helps me keep sane. Ish.

Real avi`s. But there is nothing wrong with posting fake avi`s. I just prefer to see the real person posting behind the comments and stuff :P

But yeah if people wanna hide their identity fair enough ! My avi is real (:

i like using whatever picture tickles my fancy. right now, i'm enjoying space brothers immensely so my profile is going to be a reflection of that. nanba mutta is awesome.

and... i have a pic or two of myself in my photo albums. so it's not like it's a secret how i look. i just don't put it up as my profile pic. i already have facebook for that.

because a person is most likely to choose a photo that matches their personality due to the fact that they may want to be like that character or they are just like that character or look like the character

Bingo! You got that right. I'd attest that 99.9% of people's profile pics are chosen because they identify with it in some way.

I do agree that a fake avi is a reflection of the persons personality, but I just feel more comfortable knowing who's behind the keyboard and the same goes for people looking at me. Then there's also the thing that I don't mind letting people know who I am cuz I really don't care. The worst that could happen is too slim of a possibility for me to give a dam.

I use real(you can see my hand <.<), but everybody has their own preference, and that doesn't bother me at all.

I don't mind either. I prefer to use anime pics etc for mine, because I don't want my face on the internet. But it's a personal choice.

But it's so much fun to use other characters/things! I get bored looking at my own mug here. I've already got other social media outlets that use my face.

^ I agree!

I personally like to alternate between the two since I get tired of my face sometimes. Lol... For other people, I don't really have a preference.

I will agree, the fake avatars probably reveal more about the person behind them as they are a projection.
