When you guys make MySpace accounts, do you use your own picture?

    Or a picture of someone else? Because using the same picture more than once might be kind of obvious, and wouldn't you want a really hot girl or guy for the pic anyways (unless you are really hot ;) ) If you use a pic of someone else, where do you get it from?

    Only if you are good looking. ;)

    I usually use a slutty looking girl. Seems to work well.

    But where do you get them from, because isn't it illegal to just take one that you find on Google images?

    I don't use my own pic. You can't create more than one account then.

    I don't think it's illegal to pretend to be a fake person, but it's illegal to steal pictures.

    it's against the terms of use for myspace to create a fake account. I honestly wouldn't worry about it, but that's just me.

    Yeah, so I could get banned but not sued, whereas I could maybe get sued for using a copyright picture. Maybe I'll just use my own picture... :cool:

    I doubt you are going to get sued for using some random persons picture in your fake myspace profile. The worst anyone would do is report it as a fake profile and get you removed. Seriously thousands of people do it every day.

    I use a real pic. Why spam? I've had really good results not spamming thus far.
