Anonymous Masks

leave a comment »

One of my personal favourite quirky feature in ClipClip are the Anonymous Masks.

Most social networking apps allow users to upload their own photos to show who they are. But many users , especially early on don’t upload their photo. So, what to show then? Most apps show just a bland blank image or maybe a smiley.

I thought it’d be cool to randomly assign users to a series of images that depict anonymity in a subtle way. In addition, it would be doubly cool if we could find a few Creative Commons licensed pictures donated by users all over the world to serve out as our default user images.

Well, Weiwen and I joined the activity pick a few cc-licensed photos as default user images and found some really cool photos on both Flickr and sxc.hu, an especially cool one is shown below (thank you s’nimm):

If you can discover cool images you’d like to contribute as default user images, please participate here.
