The Facebook profile picture - probably still the ultimate statement you can make about yourself without saying a single word.
It shows friends you're pretty, ex-boyfriends they're idiots, everyone from school you're the best. Like a kind of gateway drug to the selfie, the profile pic got us angling and pouting long before Instagram.I can track how I went from social media moron to "look-how-awesome-my-life-is-no-really!" social media addict in profile pics. What a difference a Harvard dropout and a decade has made...
2. (Right) On a train back from Brighton, bizarrely posing with nail varnish for boyfriend of the moment. Am much too clueless to know what it takes to produce a good profile picture so put this on Facebook. No one's really looking anyway.
4. (Right) First I'M-FABULOUS! profile pic. Have realised I can use Facebook to make my life look brilliant. I'm at a fancy party! I've got hot friends! We're all in a photo booth!
7. (Right) Worst ever profile picture! In a nutshell: A two week bender ends in a field in Suffolk at Latitude Festival. Am holding on to the cider for dear life. About an hour after this picture's taken, I meet my future husband. Despite being completely awful, make this my profile pic to show I'm cool enough to go to festivals *cringes so hard, almost dies*.
9. (Right) Wedding day. Mine. Excellent opportunities for endless profile pic options. Have been on a diet for
nine million years six months and am rocking the best blow dry of my life.
