    Default Social Proofing Your Facebook

    Hey Guys,


    Instead of all the little pieces of answers that are scattered throughout different posts, I wanted to write a simple, basic, comprehensive post on how to social proof your Facebook profile. These are the general rules-of-thumb for Facebook, but donít forget that we are Pick Up Artists, and as artists we should be individuals. What I mean by that is if you donít follow one of these rules, itís not going to completely destroy your gaming potential. To quote Keira Knightley, ďTheyíre more like guidelines anyway.Ē


    Profile Picture - Your profile picture should do one of two things, if not both:

    1. Literally display your Social Proof. Have a picture of you with your friends or other women. You should be the most attractive male in the picture and the focal point.

    2. Show your interests. If you love to travel use a picture of a significant place you have been. If you love the martial arts use a picture of you sparring in a tournament.

    Note: Your profile picture should also be as close to a full body shot as possible. You want an honest, accurate depiction of how you look. If you have some extra pounds donít hide it with a face shot. Thatís dishonest and will only hurt you later on.


    Cover Photo - This is new due to the switch from the classic layout to the timeline template. Your cover photo is a chance to show the other goal of your profile picture in case you couldnít meet both. If your profile picture is you in front of the Eiffel Tower, make your cover photo you sitting around a bonfire with your friends. If your profile picture is you with a beautiful woman, make your cover photo of you snowboarding.


    Status Updates - Many guys will say status updates in themselves are a dlv. I update my status a little less than daily. The most important thing in this portion is this: Donít update every hour. I donít care if youíre drunk, you have better things to do than tell the world every aspect of your life.


    About Me - Donít write a novel. Keep it short a sweet. A paragraph: that means 3-5 sentences. My favorite ďAbout MeĒ to say is ďIím kind of an asshole.Ē Thatís all (Credit to Bravo PUA.)


    Favorites - Having a few different favorites is fine, but donít list absolutely every band you ever listened to under music. Youíre busy and donít have enough time to do that. Try to keep it 1-5 per section, thatís why theyíre called ďfavorites.Ē


    Likes - Donít like, ďLetís see how many Ďlikesí this pickle can get in an hour!Ē or, ďWe want a dislike button!Ē Keep it professional. Businesses and interest groups are fine, but ďDoesnít Ďlolí look like a man drowning? I bet heís not loling,Ē looks like you have nothing better to do with your time than search for stupid stuff on Facebook.


    Friends - Obviously you want to have more than three friends, but donít give in to the trophy-friends plague. Having 2,500 Facebook friends isnít impressive; itís overcompensating, and she knows that. If you talk to all 2,500 friends, thatís impressive, but odds are you probably donít. Keep it reasonable. Facebook now offers the security option of not showing your friend count to anyone but yourself. Consider this, but weíll get to privacy settings in a bit.


    Links - Share interesting stuff! If you read something that you thought was cool and think your friends would like to read as well, share it! Same goes with videos. Iím not saying share porn with your bros, but I recently had a buddy share this blurb on a blue lobster caught in Canada. That sh1t was cool.


    Interactions - Use Facebook for what it was meant for: keeping in touch with your friends. If you havenít talked to your mate whoís been in Ghana for 3 months, write on his wall. Ask him how heís been and what heís been up to. Write on that girlís wall you meet while on spring break. When they write back, you look cool.


    Censorship - If anything throughout your Facebook shows you in a bad light, untag yourself and/or delete it. Pictures of you sh1tfaced on the bathroom floor from Friday night arenít cool. If you get in an argument on a thread (though Iím not sure why you would ever argue on Facebook,) delete it.


    Privacy Settings - Some privacy settings are a good thing, especially for you guys who are cold messaging women. It creates mystery and shows that you are selective. Not just any girl gets to know everything about you. How far you want to take this is really up to you. I donít show anyone my friends list. Photos and my wall are exclusively for my friends.


    Relationship Status - I shouldnít have to tell you guys this, but DONíT have a relationship status. Thatís right, none at all. Not ďsingle.Ē Not ďitís complicated.Ē Not ďin a domestic partnershipĒ with your best friend because you think itís funny to be gay. You are a pickup artist. You donít have a relationship status, so donít show one.


    This is brief, I know. For any further questions or explanations just ask.

    Cheers

    Hey Rayz,

    Let me know if this works for you or not. If it doesn't I will find another way.

    1. Log in to Facebook.
    2. Go to your profile.
    3. Click on friends.
    4. In the upper right hand corner to the left of [+ Find Friends] there should be an [Edit] button. Click on it and it will say, "Who can see your full friend list on your timeline?" Change it to "Only Me".

    i deffenatly like the whole relationship status thing, i always had trouble debating when a girl considers herself "in a relationship" with me, so instead just not having one makes it a mystery to every girl who looks at your profile, good job cody

    Hei guys !
    What is your opinion on having pictures on the fb folders with ex-girlfriends and also random selfies with beautiful women? What is too much?

    Normally in between a selfie with a beautiful woman I used to put a group pic with guys,landscape or me doing sport.. Even I deleted some selfies with women, just to show a few. That doesn't look Im a player or trying hard.

    On whatsApp, I changed my profile picture to one where I am with 3 girls 22yo in bikini(not full body), me in the center.Overall good picture.

    After done this, I noticed. One MILF 39 yo block me. One MILF 24yo block me. One MILF 36yo don't answer my messages, she used to do always.
    One HB8 stop to answer my messages, even we were having great text game.

    Im almost sure, that picture turn off all that women.. specially the MILF got angry since Im with young ones on the pic...
