a) Just think of a situation that you are going out to a Shopping Mall to buy something and some one can capture your photo through his mobile phone. What privacy you have ? He can even follow you to your home ? This doesnt mean that you wont go to the mall.
b) Lets say you have done something remarkable and you are being awarded. There is print media and you get all the spot light. Your pic appears in Newspaper with your name. Well is this dangerous? Then I think we shouldnt do great things so that we are never are caught on camera.
c) You are coming out of your college and there is a group of guys on their bike who are staring at you and makes some funny comments. Will you stop going to the college ? But you just ignore them or just go to the authorities and complain about them.
These are examples of things which you as an individual have no control over. Placing your picture on the net is something which you do of your own volition. It implies "This is what I look like"; it draws more attention to you.
This is easy to say if you have not experienced the harsh side of the net for yourself or if you haven't seen someone close to you go through hell because of simply displaying a picture on the internet. In such cases, its wise to remain a bit paranoid.
All said and done, its one's experiences which shape one's choices. If you've had good experiences on the net, thats great.
That is true. But, one should not knowingly jump off a cliff either.

I feel for a girl's protection more than a guy's...Guy's usually dont get raped, molested, stalked, etc.etc.
So obviously you would feel secure for sharing your pic but my plead to the females of this site...please dont be reckless...I care enough to say that

Y'know me personally I wouldn't put my pic. as my avatar. But if you do then you should be aware of what can happen in return. There's a lot of crazy people out there including some on the internet that just look for girls who post up their pics.
Now in a place like myspace.com I'm comfortable posting up my pic there because everyone does it~! But me personally I wouldn't put my pic as an avatar in a Forum filled with people I don't know. ^.^ Just for Safety reasons and stuff.
