Thanks @sama for hunting us! The Snappr Photo Analyzer AI will inspect your professional mugshot (e.g. LinkedIn profile pic) and tell you if it is good/bad and what you can do to improve it! It focuses on scientific research around perceptions of professionalism. This began as a little fun side project for the Snappr team, but after our friends found the prototype super-useful, we kept going! A question for the community: what type of photo analyzer should we build next? (Spoiler alert: we already have a dating photo one in the works!) And any evidence-based suggestions for attributes to add to this LinkedIn version are much appreciated. Hope you find it useful :)

@berealexandre @mdschiller @sama I was just going to say this needs to happen for ALL dating profiles ASAP. Happy to help consult on that since I have used them all, everywhere to great success. lol.

Only for Linkedin? Would be keen to try this out for other platforms but being in the tech world, I can't say that Linkedin is that much of a priority for me personally. When can we expect to see this for other sites?

@bentossell Thanks for the question! On the results page, you can upload alternative photos (not just from LinkedIn), but it will still judge them for their likely impact in a professional context. We have started work on a dating photo version too!

@mdschiller @bentossell Why not to add FB and Twitter even in professional context? This is not very complicated to do. Linkedin is banned in some countries, just saying...

@vladzima Thanks for the suggestion, appreciate it! Wasn't aware of this ban. The reason we focused on LinkedIn was that the AI was trained on the type of professional photos that tend to be used there, not on more 'social' photos. That might be something we look at for a future release! But the good news is you can upload ANY photo for analysis from the results page, as long as you have a LinkedIn account to get you there :)

@mdschiller @vladzima Trhing to upload a "custom" photo gives me a very strange error? "Sorry, LinkedIn's systems are experiencing an error and we can't pull your photo. Try again later." Since I've used a picture from my pc, how is this possible?

My profile pic is ~7 years old (here's why I haven't changed it). I just tried this out and scored a 68/100. Not the worst. 😛

@rrhoover Definitively agree with you Ryan, I have not changed my Twitter avatar since day 1 (2006), and it's not even me on it :P I have a score of 67/100 on my Linkedin photo, could be worst too. Curious to see how are scoring the "pro-CV-mugshot" people/companies are sometimes offering.

@rrhoover I must be getting ugly, I got a 58.

@rrhoover Also fully agree. I've used the same profile picture for Twitter, LinkedIn, and since I first created these accounts. Not sure if it's as important for LinkedIn, but I figure consistency doesn't hurt.

@rrhoover Don't worry, you'll get a score bump when we add the 'retro charm' attribute into the formula ;)

@rrhoover I've had my avatar as-is for 8 or 9 years, and I'll likely never change it for exactly the same reason. It's meant to be iconic, not photographic.
Are we put on your mailing list automatically if we use this?

@philippehong Thanks mate, very kind :) No launch date yet for a dating photo analyzer, but hopefully in around 2 months. If you need urgent help with your Tinder game, we'd be happy to give you early access to a testing version ;)
@mdschiller @philippehong Count me in on that! Awesome execution guys.
