AIM’s pixnay is an interesting psychological study


AIM’s Pixnay, a service which allows users to upload pictures of themselves to be ranked by the AIM community for “hotness bragging rights” really is an interesting display of web-culture, and the extent of narcissism truly present in society, but usually hidden.

I’m certainly not calling those who take part in the system narcissistic, but the fact that thousands of people have taken the time to take “the perfect pictures” of themselves to be ranked by others shows, perhaps, the true interests and insecurity of the general public. Pixnay is a semi-anonymous “rate how I look from 1 to 10” for the masses.
