Of course, you can always opt to display your mugshot, which is but normal. However, don’t you get bored seeing your face on your profile all the time? Then again, studies saying that social networks are encouraging the narcissist in all of us abound, so there is a case to be made for that, I suppose.
If you welcome new ways to play with your profile icon, you will want to give P-icon.net (PROFICON) a try. The premise of the web site is not a novel one, but it offers a lot of fun and countless ways to tinker with your profile pic.
With PROFICON, you don’t need to have excellent graphic design skills to come up with eye catching profile pics. You don’t need to be proficient in Photoshop or similar software either. You simply need to log in to the web site using your Twitter or Facebook credentials. Once you’ve done that, you can use existing templates or even create your own templates.
There is a ton of designs and accessories to choose from, with any preference being catered to. Tech enthusiasts will certainly take a second look at these two details.
You have to admit, having either of those details on your profile pic will erase any doubts as to your preferences.
In case you’re still hungover from Talk Like a Pirate Day – or perhaps you’re in a perpetual pirate-fixated state – then you might be interested in something like this.
As for me, pandas always take the cake.
PROFICON has a whole lot more of choices to offer – from cutesy icons to Japanese characters to frames. The possibilities are endless, thanks to the ability to use existing templates and create new ones. You can even use layers to combine different images that you want to use for your profile pic. Of course, there is the possibility of uploading your own photo, which you can then embellish with whatever details you find on PROFICON.
Since you log in using Twitter or Facebook, you can also use keep a history of the templates that you have used. This way, when you feel like creating something new, and you have a favorite detail you want to make use of, you simply have to check the history and not go through the humongous archive.
What are you waiting for? Have some fun with that profile pic of yours!
