    Default self portraits - an Asian Asian thing?

    On Facebook, when a friend gets tagged, you get a notice on your front page so you can go see that photo and the album that it's in. I notice that the girls from TW seem to really like taking photos of themselves. They like making faces and making that FOB peace sign. Sometimes almost the whole album is just themselves at home taking those self portraits.

    Are they trying to show off how cute and pretty they are, or is it an Asian Asian thing? (As in Asians from Asia)
    What are you fighting for? Just mix them into pissing beef balls, stupid.

    It's a cover up for Mail Order Brides.
    Due to several complaints, I will stop using the terms "Babe" and "Baby" in reference to our female counterpart. They will now be replaced with "B*tch."

    I don't do that, so it's beyond my understanding. Maybe they're just vain or bored?

    I do that, only when I get new clothes that I want to show my friends, or when my friends request that I take pictures of myself, or when my friends and I watch too many episodes of Next Top Model.

    It's just for fun and for my friends (given how highly my profile is restricted).

    I see the #2 and #7 poses a lot. I also see a variation where the girl turns the V side around (so the pinkie side of her hand is to the camera) and she puffs up her cheeks and puts the fingers next to her cheek.

    haha this thread makes me laugh. I went to HK late last year, and met this girl (who is a friend of a friend), she works for Disneyland as an accountant, and when she started there, she had to get her photo taken for her staff ID pass, and they made her do the double "V" pose! Imagine that? It was a work requirement. Gosh if I posed like that for my ID pass, I don't think it would ever get issued (my work is quite strict)

    Well after she told us that, every photo my friends and I took, we just had to do the "V" pose.

    well since she works for Disneyland, that's understandable since employees are supposed to be all happy and stuff.

    Not if you rotate your wrist so that your palm faces your torso, and hold your hand parallel to the ground while doing the V. That's the non-fob way.

    That says: I want to cut my nipples off with a pair of scissors.

    Still makes me cringe.

    I find those cutesy "self portraits" rather annoying. Maybe the younglings enjoy it *shrugs*. Be amazed, some young teenage guys enjoy it too.

    I'd prefer to hide behind the gorilla suit or some cranky masks to assume anonymity. Making ugly faces or wearing of funny props do fine too.

    it's a girl thing, all girl do it.

    i take self portrait for my FB profile picture too. I can't work the camera (ok i'm bad at taking pictures). I need a mirror to see how I look to take semi decent pictures of myself.

    Maybe your intention isn't (as mentioned in your case). Not all girls do that. Trust me! This is the reality..... *see below*
