The 4 Big Myths of Profile Pictures

The 4 Big Myths of Profile Pictures is an article on the dating site OKCupid that takes their user data and analyzes which kind of pictures get the most responses.

Interesting photos get the most conversations, intimate flirty-face shots and showing off your bodies get the most responses. A lot of results fly in the face of what we want to believe about internet dating photos.

Maybe people hate these because they're so common... and they are common because they work? This article is pure fascinating social science.
