A team from 'PhotoFeeler' created this educational infographic that teaches social media users which professional images they should be displaying on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The charts allows users to understand what images are professionally appropriate, and which ones are better kept offline.

The team collected 800 profile pictures and conducted a survey where social media users ranked each image based on competence, likability and influence. The chart depicts the best way to look at the camera, which facial expressions to use and how editing your own images can all be used as an advantage or disadvantage when landing a job.

This infographic is a great way to easily educate young professionals about the kind of online personality they should be projecting. It also aids those who are less tech-savvy to get a better idea of how professional images and profile pictures affect the way brands and potential employers see them.
