"Hot" facebook photos

    Ok so girls using the best photos of themselves on facebook, is normal. Guys do that too.
    Sometimes girls post photos they like, unrelated to themselves. Sometimes supermodels.
    But what I've seen girls do sometimes is use photos of models as cover photos or profile pictures, and it's a model that has similar features or same hair colour as they do. Usually the model is wearing sunglasses, the photo is blurred or at a slight distance or angle. So it looks like it might be them. And then friends comment "is this you??", and they don't reply...
    A friend of mine saw a photo another girl had posted taken from the back, featuring a blonde on a skateboard and told me she looked so good in that photo. I know the photo is taken from tumblr and it's not her. So clearly if you post a random model from the back, you can fool people.

    Girls must obviously do this to on some level fool people into thinking it's them?? Are we doing this now? Am I the only one who finds this ridiculous?
    I've stopped posting photos on facebook that isn't me or my friends altogether..

    Facebook is just sad. I can't wait until the next fad comes. Just a popularity contest.
