When you create a Facebook profile picture, what kind of image do you want to project? Is it a goofy smiley face or an intense stare? Or maybe you prefer something in between? The answer to this question may depend on your personality. If you're the type of person who likes to have fun, then a goofy face might be best. If, on the other hand, you're more serious and focused, an intense stare might work better. Whatever your preference, it's important to choose an image that accurately reflects who you are and how you want people to see you.
