Something weird happened to me in the last week. I had a photo that I took at my boyfriends house up on my face book profile. And I was asked to take it down, by someone I would call a friend. This person said that I may offend some rabbi's he would like to add. So being the nice friend (hee hee) I am...I removed it as my profile picture. I did not think much of it...and but was not totally comfortable with that decision. It was not about the photo...it was the reason I guess. I feel like if you have friends that are going to beoffended by other friends...then really is face book the place to add them? Whatever, I did not think to much of it.
Until, I looked and saw that this person had taken a drawing I drew from my own personal website and was using it as their profile photo?! Which seemed weird. I think this person did not know that art is a special thing like that...and unless you ask someone to use your images, it's weird and not right. I really did not know how to handle this situation. I mean, I wanted them to take down the image, which they did after a couple of times. I also wanted to know why they would ask me to change a photo of myself because it MAY offend. I know what your thinking...who cares. I mean it's not like I had my shirt off and boobs out.
end result: I changed my photo. He deleted the one he took from my web page and I deleted him from my friends. It still leaves me with a creepy feeling.
