Tracey Cox's webcam tips for digital minxes


Check what's in view
People will make assumptions about you simply by looking at the things you own, so make sure everything in view sends the signals you want to send. If you're keen to promote a certain image - like be seen as intelligent, for instance, make sure a pile of books are in view. If you want to be seen as artistic, put a painting directly behind you.

Use the camera to reveal the different sides of you
Obviously, you’ll want to look your best the first time you chat via the webcam, but don’t be afraid to let them see you looking less than perfect. Revealing different ‘looks’ gives you dimension.

Be friendly
It sounds obvious but there is a temptation to play it cool for fear of appearing too keen. This can (sometimes) work in the flesh but it doesn’t translate well on a webcam. The more you smile, the more they’re going to like you. If you insist on using the ‘treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen’ stuff, save it for when you’re actually out on a date. We like people who like us. Simple as that.
