What does your social networking profile pic reveal about you?

British teen Nina Jones says she "spend[s] a disproportionate amount of time on Facebook each evening, looking at the profile pictures of people I don't know"; curious about why people choose the pics they do, she decided to survey Facebook users (via a specially created Facebook group, natch).

Some of the more intriguing and candid answers:

- "My profile photo is meant to give the impression that i possess a higher degree of gravitas and sophistication than i actually do"

- "Mine shows my desire to be Grace Jones"

- "This is a photo of my bike, Doris"

- "I like ducks. I particularly liked this duck."
