    Search Positive / Negatives of Having Profile Pic on SM Instead of Timer Pic?

    Have any of you girls who have their profile pic displayed instead of the timer pic found that it is positively affected the amount of guys who come into their room? Or less? :/ Or perhaps had no apparent effect?

    I'm considering sending an email along to SM support to have my picture changed to my profile pic, but I wanted to get some of the other girls experiences on this?

    When I asked them to just post the static pic, I actually had MORE people come in the room. I think it was catching me at some awkward moments, which at my age, didn't look too pretty! LOL

    I personally prefer seeing the profile pic that is all gussied up on the page rather than the action ones, but, I think it's probably just preference. Every guy is going to think different.

    If you can match what the static pic shows, I think it's a better option. I've personally seen ladies who have awesome, glamorous static pics...and then you enter their room and it's almost like it's not the same girl. I'm always told I look better than my pics so I'm a big fan of the static shot. I email support about it my second day and haven't looked back. Don't know if it affected my traffic or not, but it looks better externally I feel. Like JulieAnne said, the snapshot can catch you at some awful inconvenient times (and I don't feel it shows true cam quality).

    i prefer having the static pic. the only problem i've ever had with it is when guys are like "why aren't you wearing the same outfit?" but my body and hair look the same as in the static pic so it's not a big deal - there's not a huge difference (my static pic isn't super glammed up or anything).

    ouch aint that the truth.

    I agree I think static works if you update your profile pic semi-regularly if you look dramatically different than when you cam. If you have a super glam pic but live cam as a girl next door it is prob confusing to your audience

    Even when you have a static pic if the person is logged in (ie they have a credit card) they can glimpse into your freechat room just by dragging their mouse (depending on their download speed) - so no need for a frozen shot. But if you cant get a hi-res and/or watermarked photo for your profile pic, I can see why a frozen shot can be better

    I don't have experience using the static picture, but I know when I'm online searching through the girls I'll tend to go to the ones with the static picture. I sound like a creeper saying that! haha

    I never thought it'd matter too much weather its static or random caps till I started looking at my placement, almost all the time it goes off as I am moving and is just a freakish blur, hell I wouldnt click on me in that case lol. Think I am gonna finally ask for the static pic and see if my traffic makes any significant changes...or if I get a ton of stupid questions xD

    Thanks for posting the thread, finally motivating me to give it a go.
    I just hate emailing support cause they'll prolly tell me how to use the encoder or something totally unrelated

    Not to be totally ignorant but I block my state, how can I see my static pic while I'm camming?

    You can't^ I believe.
    I don't like those timer pics I asked to have it stopped. Don't want an unflattering pic of me
