Jordanian women and Facebook

Or shall I say Ammani women?... since that has been the object of personal familiarization. Anyways, you can say that the condition is pretty much typical so a generalization could be excused. No excuse? Buzz off...why are you reading this blog anyhow?

So, on facebook, there's the profile picture that stands as the visual representation of ourselves. The thing with most of these [us] women on facebook is posting a picture from their weddings. Putting aside all the social constructs that are entailed to reaching to such a level of presentation, don't you think its doing these women's special wedding moments a form of degradation by using them as a virtual identifier of who they are to the public? A moment in your life doesn't represent who you are (basing on a premise here that the profile pic is a representation of who you are). Or, in the case of Jordanian women, it does.
