Now I know
For those who have wondered about the real reason why people don't look like their photographs (and the other way round) on Orkut, Myspace and Blogger Profile, look no further.
Have to add one more example to the list though:
example of style:
photo style: Painting
what they want you to think: Have taste in art
what it really means: can't even find a extreme-angled, blurry, close up of a body part in a mirror, which is worth putting on the profile!!
Apologies to all concerned, especially the example.
