A profile displays brief information about a member of the community. It’s a good way to take a glimpse of who the member is. A profile most generally includes -

  • Name and a picture.
  • A short bio about the member, some of their interests, expertise, profession, and hobbies.
  • Social media accounts.
  • Personal website (if any).
  • Contact info (if any).

A profile comes in handy when you want to connect or network with another member who is most probably a stranger. It can help you filter people who are more inclined to your personality or interests, therefore making them more approachable.
