What do you use your front facing camera for?

Do you take lots of self portraits? Do you FaceTime all the time? Or just use it as a mirror?

Usually just duck-face selfies.

----------

kidding... facetime.

I think twice now I've taken a pic of me and my daughter using it. Just so I have something to send my wife.

I wasn't going to go there but my ex used to send me pictures and videos all the time but they were always at awkward angles. The ffc would have made it much more convenient. Lol.

I rarely use it...only if my Mom insists on trying out FaceTime, which I really don't like. The quality looks pale in comparison to how Apple advertises it and the voice / picture always seems off.

I use mine for FaceTime and also for making short video messages that I will send to my friends in case I don't want a live conversation.

What SandboxGeneral said, except that the short video messages are to my wife & son and not because I don't want to have a live conversation but because I'm out of Wi-Fi range (i.e. no FaceTime).

I tape over it with electrical tape because I believe it's always watching me and judging me.

That's not sexting unless you're doing it wrong.

I rarely use the front facing camera on my phone for much of anything, but when I do it's usually as a mirror. Very convenient for that.
