Hi, everybody. As my Title, would you reply to those users without photo or any information?
We don't know each other, photo is the first step let me know who you are. And then read the information,i can guess how you are.
When those who without any information say only "hi" ,be honest , I am put off .I'm very confussed what they want to do.
According to my informal statistics, more than 80% language partners who send a request to make friends would say nothing more than "hi" or "hello". I really do not understand what those people want. Do they not sense that is pretty wasteful and useless for their work? I suppose most of them are young people who do not know how others feel about "Hi" only.
Besides, I do not consider the photo is important for you to choose a favorable language partner, but rather, the response from the person you wish to practice is much more important than a fabulous photo. That is my experience in learning English and seeking for better language partners to enjoy the journey of learning.
