More of the Most Common Facebook Photos and Poses

A few months ago, Web Watch presented the TOP 20 MALE POSES SEEN ON FACEBOOK, but that appears to be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to stereotypical Facebook photos and poses.

Urban Dictionary even has a definition for “Facebook Pose”:   An “I look so good from this angle” pose that people pull when someone is taking a picture of them that is likely to appear on facebook. Such pictures are usually taken at a concert/party/club, and are posted for no reason other than to make people appear successful popular and like they have a life.


  1. The flattering, pretty picture
  2. The picture with the ugly folks cropped out
  3. The funny drinking/drunk picture
  4. The artsy photo
  5. The “hey, look at me!” photo
  6. The photo of the happy couple

A very well-thought out single listing, THE 30 STANDARD FACEBOOK PROFILE PHOTO STYLES seems to cover the gamut of every cheesy pose you’ll run across on Facebook (with example photos that just need to be seen):
