Just don't get it... all over facebook, people taking hundreds of pics of themselves in the mirror. WTF? Why do I want to look at 25 minutely different pics of you in the bathroom mirror?
Am i getting old? is it a young thing?

It's a young thing. So is the pouting and looking saucy.

Not like in my day! We used to gurn for photos.

why are there no genuine pics of these kids? My neice has about 500 pics on her facebook and in every single one she is moody, sullen and sour faced

rimmer Wed 15-Jul-09 15:31:24

and the saddest thing is that she obviously thinks she looks good or why the hell have them on there?

it is terribly vain.

i used to hate havingt my photo taken when i was young and lovely. now im old and haggered i embrace it and just accept that its not a terrible photo it really is how i look.

so now there are hundreds of photos of me all looking equally awful

LOL my cousin has about 140000000 pictures of herself on Facebook, all taken with her webcam so they look all grainy and she looks miserable as hell. If I saw her pic I wouldn't want to be her FB friend!

bet you don't mamazon. Bet you look full of genuine emotion not like some plastic puppet!!!

Oh yes, and the obligatory picture of them on all fours, arse raised in the manner of a hormonal chihuahua,
Or the one of said youngster and her best friend draped round each other in an oh so erotic hmm manner.

yes, poking out tongues and licking eachother, seems to be relevant to boys and girls.

rimmer is a gimmer!

MadameOvary Wed 15-Jul-09 15:47:55

Yes, the faux-lezzie pose
Lol at mirror gurning.

rimmer Wed 15-Jul-09 15:48:42

ha ha! had to look that up. Am actaully only 30 but think am totally missing the boat on this one!!!

and don't forget the one taken from above looking down at your cleavage - or as much cleavage as a 13 year old might have....

the worst are wedding pictures as profile pics. i know you spent your poor parents life savings and it has been downhill ever since but get over it.

TheChilliMooseisOnTheLoose Wed 15-Jul-09 15:58:15

I agree Rimmer - I don't wish to see anyone's tongue.

rimmer Wed 15-Jul-09 15:58:33

vousfaire, what you got as your profile pic on facebook?

rimmer Wed 15-Jul-09 16:00:10

don't know about you lot, but I'm off to spend 2 hours putting on heavy eye make up and straightening my hair ready to have a heavy photo session in the hallway mirror to see what all the fuss is about, will report back later

rimmer Wed 15-Jul-09 16:00:37

anyone got 5 mins later to pop in for the lezzy shots?

VousFaireVousPeutAvecUneChevre Wed 15-Jul-09 16:00:42

not a picture of me!

Greatfun Wed 15-Jul-09 16:01:33

Someone I know has over 130 photos of herselfon there. They are really posey. She is 36 FGS.

MadEyeMoodyToptheMule Wed 15-Jul-09 16:03:53

The photos taken from a higher angle are known as 'Myspace photos'. Very emo.

detectiveonamission Wed 15-Jul-09 16:05:37

oohhh this is my most favorite rant ever!!! grin

its the holding the camera away from you while you look moodily into the distance that gets my blood pressure shooting up.

TheChilliMooseisOnTheLoose Wed 15-Jul-09 16:07:23

Once with your face tilting down but looking up at the camera, in your hand, with your arm in view are particularly classy. As are pictures where you are doing your best to not make it look like you are trying to show off your tattoos and/or piercings.

TheChilliMooseisOnTheLoose Wed 15-Jul-09 16:21:58

GOd, you do all know that I was being sarcastic, don't you?

ErikaMaye Wed 15-Jul-09 16:34:33

For those of you who said you didn't get it because of your age...

I'm 18 and its rediculous. Its the pouting with one finger on your chin / chin in the V of your hand that drives me bonkers. What, do you have a really HUGE spot that you HAVE to cover up there??
