Dynamic websites are a place on the web where people can make their own profile. Typically online forums have user profiles which are a place where the user can write a short résumé, add a photo and where statistical information about the user can be displayed.Profiles are very elaborated in online social networking services such as Facebook, Google profile or LinkedIn in which people have the possibility to describe their identity.
I wonder if the idea of the profile may have originated from the AIM profile years ago? There may be little to no connection, but I thought it important to bring up the earliest form of profile I ever have on a computer to reference what profiles have become in today’s computer world. If you notice in the yellow rectangle this pop-up box was called the Personal Profile
Myspaceallows users to customize profile pages by entering HTML into given areas such as "About Me," "I'd Like to Meet," and "Interests." Videos and flash-based content can be included this way. Users also have the option to add music to their profile pages via MySpace Music, a service that allows bands to post songs for use on MySpace.
The drop down link on myspace under profile shows several links to various aspects of the users profile. Places to edit, customize and link to other websites. The sections on Myspace are a little more unprofessional than those on Facebook and LinkedIn. There are 9 sections on Myspace which you can incorporate CSS text to change the appearance of the profile: Headline About Me Who I’d Like to Meet General Music Movies Television Books Heroes
Facebook's mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.The profile is devided into 6 sections basic information personal information contact information education and work groups pagesInformation such as; one photo which they pick to show themselves to the world with age, race, sex, religion, level of education,
The purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust in business. The people in the list are called Connections. Users can invite anyone (whether a site user or not) to become a connection.This list of connections can then be used in a number of ways:It can then be used to find jobs, people and business opportunities recommended by someone in one's contact network. Employers can list jobs and search for potential candidates. Job seekers can review the profile of hiring managers and discover which of their existing contacts can introduce them.
The LinkedIn profile allows quite a few more editable sections than Facebook and Myspace. Summary Applications Experience Education Recommended By Additional Information Personal Information Contact Settings
These are some other examples of social network services
I believe the future of user profiles is headed towards a more professional purpose. We have seen profiles evolve over time from basic AIM personal profiles to extremely in depth profiles on LinkedIn. Where do you think the future of the user profiles are headed? In my experience as an NCAA athlete providing a tasteful and accurate account of yourself on a user profile was critical. The NCAA harped on the fact that you never know who may be looking at your profile. Be careful what you display. ..question 2
