It's interesting that you think the profile photo with two person in the it can affect the way other users' communication with the user. But doesn't the Whatsapp have profile names to help you identify who you are texting with? In that case, I may consider the two-person profile photo has different purpose, say memorizing a great friendship.
Using photos from What's App was a clever choice and I liked that these photos were different than those you might see being used as profile photos on different social medias. I really liked your reflection that the purpose of these photos is to clarify who the person is, rather than as a conversation piece (as in Facebook). I was also surprised as you were to see that ratios of male/female and age remained consistent for looking at pictures with and without other people.
