Since it was a news site I was on, I was curious to see if this warrior had made it into the news or something.
I went back to the page, and saw nothing. Figuring the image was in a rotation, I reloaded the page a few times until I saw the image again.
Sure enough. It was a fellow warrior!
With his "mom." In an ad. For something that's not his, so far as I know.
Yeah. So, near as I can tell, this warrior's image is a stock photo.
I know we've had discussions on this, as to whether it's okay to use a stock image for your profile on EZA or your website, etc. Legalities aside, one of the risks is that of other people using the same image, diluting your credibility.
So, it's somewhat surprising to find that people may be doing this on the WF. With warriors no doubt searching through stock photo sites quite frequently, don't you think a fellow warrior might at some point notice? Even if not, if it's a stock photo, who knows where "you" might show up?
You might show up in an ad, with your "mom", endorsing a product well outside your niche...
