From a halachic perspective, is it modest for a religious woman - especially someone who is single - to post her picture profile on social media?

    Not sure why my comment was deleted, but this question could be improved with reasons why you think it may or many not be a problem. – mevaqesh May 20 '16 at 20:13

  • @mevaqesh your now-deleted comment directly addressed content of the post that's no longer in it. So I deleted the comment. – msh210 May 20 '16 at 23:16
  • Possibly, a form of "Lifnei Iver" (stumbling block before the blind) if someone is intentionally disguising the way she looks. (BTW, interestingly, enough, I think the pic problem is more prevelant with men than with women.) I think the larger problem may, of course, be in any subsequent descriptive profile, though. Then again, there are a number of newspapers & publications that don't place any pics of women, anywhere. – DanF May 22 '16 at 2:26
