Other people in your profile pics, did you ask permission?

    I have always been puzzled at guys who include other people (not their partners) in photos that they use on public websites. Now I am not talking the group shot of a bunch of guys hanging out that documents a group of friends or an event. Particularly I am thinking about the photos of women I see with their arms around a guy. Does she know you just posted her face to sites like facebook, realjock, etc or worse do guys do this in Manhunt, Grindr and pick up sites? Discuss (lol)

    Knowing people the way I know people, I'd guess a good majority of those guys didn't ask permission of the other person in the picture.

    Personally I don't think people should be posting up pictures of other people online unless they give consent first.

    Somewhat discussed 5 days ago on my thread entitled "What's up with all these random pics of members with hot girls?" here: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1668995/ Though maybe you'll have better luck with your thread.

    The only "Group" picture I have on my profile is from Marching band & I blocked everyone's face. I personally think it's rude to post peoples pictures online without their consent unless you're tagging them on Facebook.

    I've often thought of the same thing. The only other person I would ever consider including in any of my pictures would be my boyfriend and I would ask him if it would be alright before I posted any pictures.

    If there is anybody else in a picture I am considering posting, I do some photo editing in order to cut them out of the picture. Personally, I would never want my face plastered alongside a friends face if they were on a site like Manhunt or Grinder (sp?)!

    I don't think it's proper to tag someone in a photo without their permission either.

    Like spousal 'rape' ?

    (Time to get all Law and Order up is this bitch-niz: ) Let me rephrase that:

    People can't possibly implicitly consent to having their pictures, that can identify them, used on internet sites they are not even aware of.

    I rest my monolithic case your honour, can I get paidz now?

    Now that's pretty dumb.

    Me: "Hey [insert friends name here] Can I tag you in this picture of us?
    Friend: " Why the Fuck are you asking me when A) I agreed to be in the picture with you. B) I'm on your friends list C) I'm not Nude,which wouldn't even be allowed on facebook anyways.



    If it were to be a picture of just my friend alone in it,that would be a different story

    Actually thinking about both your thread and mine I realized that the real question is what is the motivation of members who put pictures of themselves with girls in their gay profiles, particularly when they look no better or worse than they do in their solo pics?

    My buddies were fine with it - and a couple of them are "RJ boys" anyway. My bf is fine with his pictures being used, since I met him here in Forums a few years ago - and he too is an "RJ boy". Now I also have a couple of pictures of my dogs, and they are pissed because they explicitly forbid me to use those photos!! icon_cool.gif

    People can untag themselves on facebook, and generally when you're taking photos at an event with friends it's assumed that you're going to tag them in the photos.

    I think it's fine as long as it isn't something that I wouldn't want on facebook if I were on the other end; for example, photos of people drunk or doing something stupid, or a photo that doesn't make them look good at all.

    For me on Facebook, the photos of other people I put up are also my Facebook friends so most likely they will see it and by tagging them, they are also sent notice the photo is up on FB. This gives them opportunity to ask me to remove it if they do not like the photo or want it on FB. As a friend, I would gladly take it down if asked. The difference on RJ is that none of my real life friends are on RJ and so I feel I should request permission first before using a photo that has his or her face in it.
