    Correction please.
    I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say. Could you rephrase it, please?

    Re: Do you want me to come and personally give you my introduction?

    Actually I was joking with a friend of mine who doesn't want to recognize my latest pic on facebook. He was asking me whose pic is it jokingly. Therefore, I jokingly replied to him " Do you want me to come and personally give you my introduction?".

    That doesn't really work. Perhaps "Do you want me to come and personally introduce myself?" would be better.

    What do you mean by he "doesn't want to recognise my picture?" Do you simply mean that he didn't recognise you in the photo?

    No, but he was pretending as if he didn't recognize me in the picture.

    Then "Stop being silly. You know perfectly well it's me" would suffice.

    I should point out that if you're having a relaxed, informal jokey conversation with a friend, whether it's online or in person, you really shouldn't be worrying about your English so much at that point. You're going to be very busy if you make a post on the forum querying the accuracy of almost everything you say or write.

    Re: Do you want me to come and personally give you my introduction?

    No, it didn't take much time because I had reviewed all the posts I commented on. I was just copying those comments of mine and pasting here to be sure of those comments correctness. You know I usually have oral conversations with peoples but I don't remember everything. So I thought the prior was the best way to improve the grammar.
