Profile Photos

I received a response that I didn't expect on my post Profile Photo. In that post, I suggested that you should always add a profile photo: Don't join that new Ning group without attaching your photo.

I'm running into you on a business networking site.

My guess is that about 25% of the people I run into do not have a profile photo. It doesn't take a lot to add a profile photo, and it's fairly significant.
