Just curious - as I just changed mine completely - so was wondering what others are interested in seeing when you visit someone's profile. Do you want to see who their friends are or what they are interested in?? Do you want to see what discussions they have started or comments their friends have left for them??

Primarily, when I look, I'm looking to see where they are from, and what discussions that they have started. Culturally it has become important to me to see what country folks are from to try to understand their perspective and how their region affects it.

Great - that is nice to know that it's important for you to see what country folks are coming from and be open to understanding their perspectives as well as how their religion affects it!!! You sound like someone with a very open mind and that is always wonderful to hear about!!! Have an Awesome Day!!!

Hi friend, at first i look at from where they come. Then i look at the interests. After that i start responding the discussion which they have started. If have any thing to ask, i send private message. This is my ordinary visit over others profile. This attitude will change according to the friend ship with them. Anyway thank you very much for giving me a chance to respond your discussion.......

Well, it would be nice to see the person. Not for vanity purposes but just so you know who you are talking to. I don't know about you but I can speak more comfortably and I have more to say when I see a person because at the very least you can assume you know something about them.

That is a great way to put it!!! And it sounds like that is what works best for you!!! I guess for myself - I can really talk to anyone - doesn't matter to me if I have seen them or not - it's just what works for me - although I do have to admit that I can get curious too!!

When i look at somebody's profile the first thing i see is the age and country to which the person belongs. I also take a close look at areas of interest and the discussions that have been started by the person as this explains the mindset of the person to a large extent. I do take a look at the photographs posted and the friends already made.

Great - I also notice their age & country too!! And you are right - looking at the interest areas as well as what discussions they have started can tell you alot about the person. I too love to look at the pictures they have posted whether they are personal pictures or just fun pictures they have taken!!!

Every time that I look at people's profiles, the only thing that I'm interested into is their nationality. I want to understand with who I'm talking to, because when I answer to somebody I want to be very kind in the words that I may use, to not offend the feelings and the culture of the citizen that I'm talking to.

Wow you are a very kind and courteous person knowing that you would definitely want to be sure that you word your replies so that they are not offensive to the discussion that was started!!! We need more great people like yourself in this world!!!

I take a look at choice of colours by a member, very closely. whenever I receive a request from someone for adding her/him as my friend or if I see that someone has written an interesting answer to my discussion, I make it a point to go through/read/evaluate his/her profile. Profile also tells us a lot about a member and his nature and taste.

I agree with you that you can learn a lot about members from their profiles depending on what they may feel comfortable about sharing with others. I too find myself viewing profiles of those who have answered a discussion that really caught my interest or if the response was really interesting.

I usually check out their photo sections. It's nice to put a face to the one who posted the discussion. And I frequently check out their discussion list. Especially the old ones. Sometimes, I find more interesting old discussions to respond to compared to the new ones.

Cool - I also enjoy looking at people's pictures within their profiles. And I agree with you too that sometimes you can come across an old discussion that is much more interesting than a new one that just hasn't picked up much with regards to replies.

I am interested to know what these people are doing with their online programs. If they are engaged in sites that really pays. I am also interested on their bio-data. I check it out on their qualifications and achievements and can not help but admire and follow suit.

Great to know - I think that there are lots of us who are interested in earning money online and having legitimate programs that we participate in on our profile can be an easy way to share them with others.

When I visit other people's profile, my initial interest would be the type of discussions they make. I try to see if I can answer some of their posts and find out also if I can relate to most of their concerns. Then I also check the responses they made in a discussion, from there I could pretty tell how they are like, you know, their interests and stuff like that. I would also be interested to see the photos they have uploaded. The other feautures I would not really be particularly interested in.

Yes I agree with you - that is the first thing I look at when looking at other's profiles!!! That makes it easy to see if you can offer an opinion on one of their discussions or see if you have any of the same interests as they do. And I do like to see pictures that they have taken - hopefully not just downloaded from somewhere on the net!!!

I like to browse through my friend's profile. I don't take much interest in looking for their friends list .. I simply take a look at the way their profile looks .. I get the idea in which things they are interested by looking at - discussions they have replied to.

Cool - I like the way you think!!! And you are right - I don't have any interest in who their friends are either - just like to see what discussions they have started or replied to so I can see if there's any that are of interest to me!!!! Hope you have a Great Day!!

I look at 3 main things. First and foremost I pay attention to the discussions they have started. Then I check out the ones they've responded to. And lastly I love checking out their personal photos. Not online pics but photos of them, their family, or their place where they live etc. Then if I am impressed etc I may even send a friends request etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
