We see lots of photos on Facebook. People post (or share) photos of practically everything on this social networking site. There are pictures of babies, food, holiday snapshots, family pictures, pictures of disasters, photos that can bring tears to your eyes, photos of actors, of politicians – you name it, it’s probably been posted on Facebook.
However, of all the photos found on the biggest social networking site, ever – “couple photos” are the ones that elicit the most reaction, be it in the form of likes or comments, from other Facebook netizens. Here are 7 kinds of Couple-Snaps that are often found on Facebook news feeds or posted as Profile Pictures of those who are hopelessly in love.
These photos range from one person kissing the other on the check, a total lip-locking experience often seen in wedding or engagement photos, or both doing air kisses. Have yet to see one photo where the couple copy the “inverted / hanging” kiss of Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman and Kirsten Dunst’s Mary Jane though.
Couple Selfie Photos
This is more common – boy and girl next to each other with one holding a camera at arms length so both can be seen in the picture. Background could be anything from an exotic vacation spot to the insides of their home. You’ll notice selfie-photographers often include part of their arm in the photo. Expert selfie-photographers know how to hold the camera in such a way that the viewer wouldn’t know the difference.
Where One is Asleep and One Isn’t Photos
Okay, perhaps not as cute as the photo above, but you know what these photos are like. Two people “sleeping” – well, at least one person is really sleeping. The other one obviously, is conscious enough to take a selfie of them both, while the other is sleeping. Did that make sense?
Screen shots on Skype Photos
Typical “couple photo” of two people who are possibly on a long distance relationship. How else can you show your togetherness but to post screen captures of your VOIP sessions?
Colorized Couple Photos
Ah .. photos of couples who have just discovered the joys of Instagram or of Warholizers, or of Frametastic – or of whatever built-in photo editing software can be found in their respective laptops, or whatever the latest photography app can be downloaded on either iTunes or Google Play.
Usually taken during a mutual friend’s special event, photobooth photos often involve goofy faces and equally goofy props.
With matching (or coordinated) Outfits / Tattoos / Hats … etc Photos
You know what these are like … couples wearing matching clothes, his and hers shirts, his and hers hats, showing off their his-and hers tattoos. Think pre-divorce Seal and Heidi Klum during their wacky Halloween parties, on a much much smaller scale. You get the drift.
It’s all right to post any (or all) of the photos mentioned above on Facebook, as long as the images are tasteful. Remember that the image you put on Facebook can be viewed by, not just your friends and family, but their network of friends too. Even if you have boosted your security settings, there are many ways one can copy images on the internet and share it with others. As a rule of thumb, post only photos of you and your sweetheart you wouldn’t be ashamed your children would see.
