Curiosity about the ODesk homepage

Hello friends, whenever we hit the homepage of ODesk, we can see some good faces over there. So I am very much curious about to know, are these peoples are highly active, top rated members of ODesk? I think that will not be the case. But if anyone knew about this then please share

I know one of them

The person I know is pretty active and another left a comment on the forum once that she was surprised to be on the cover. She was very active also.
I think they are just active contractors who have nice, smiling photos that are good compositions without a lot of noise in the background.

actually i talked with ODesk

actually i talked with ODesk support team Smile and they gave me some valuable information

Generally, ODesk do not show the faces automatically. The person who wants to be on the cover page, approaches to ODesk marketing team for inclusion. There are some criterias for the inclusion. It is the marketing team that chose who to display as a sample.

Hmmmm

Are they being payed for that Vinit? Smile

More than likely only

More than likely only $1.00

Standard pay for employee used in what might be classed as advertising.

You don't honestly think they know? Or that they would tell you if they did?

Seriously, does it MATTER ?

It's not as if Customer Support have nothing better to do - such as sorting out problems which interfere with contractors' livelihood and income?

I think they are models, but

I think they are models, but I'm unsure. Puzzled

Models but why odesk team

Models Cool
but why odesk team will include them on their homepage? I mean to say, if they are models then what are they doing here?? Actually their place is on any celebrity magazine or something like that

1) Who the hell cares & 2) That's what models are there for

I don't understand your obsession with those pictures. Who the hell cares? (To the point of wasting Customer Support time, when they can hardly cope with REAL issues)

That is what models are paid to do. They advertise products and services. There are agencies that sell photos of people for exactly this purpose. It's called advertising.

Seriously, I can't for the life of me wrap my head around why you are so curious about random faces on the Internet. Every website you visit shows models - every magazine you open, every TV advert you watch..... what does it matter and what is so fascinating about it?

I am new to this world and

I am new to this world and that's why honestly I was very curious to know about this. I think every one possess obsession about the new things and so I am not the exception for that. I was not aware of the fact that these are actual models. When I talked with the ODesk support team they told me that these are faces among us. Smile

They are not models

I also know a couple of them. One of them in particular gets a higher rate then me and works for oDesk in some fashion as a media manager. He even interviewed me.
