The results may hold for anyone looking for love, regardless of whether it's digital dating.
For instance, whether or not to have a profile photo is a no-brainer: It's pretty much essential.
For instance, self-shot photos for women resulted in 8.75 new contacts from men per month, compared with 8.67 from average female photos not taken with a phone or webcam. Looking at just female photos, results showed the so-called My Space shot, in which the gal holds her phone above her head and looks up with a coy face, was best hands down.
That result held even when the team controlled for cleavage shown at that angle.
Ladies who showed some cleavage got 49 percent more contacts than the average photo. A 32-year-old woman showing her body received one fewer message than the equivalent 18 year-old, but an "older woman" showing no cleavage got 4 fewer messages compared with a young gal.
There's no need to say anything -- just show them this list.
Even so, that six-pack has a short shelf life, the team says.
While a 19-year-old showing abs garnered more contacts from women than the average photo, that same ab shot for a 31-year-old didn't give him much boost over the average male photo.
It has a sense of 'hot off the presses, this is me in real time, unadulterated, not prettied up,'" Yagan said.
"And there's something very spontaneous about it." "The 'ab shot' actually does quite well," Yagan said.
