Nice direction here. Building a profile is a surprisingly simple task... however building a great profile... a "persona" takes thought. <div>&nbsp;</div> I like your tip on how a profile can evolve over time. Just as in real life, we tend to share more as we get to know others more. The is the same with a profile... it is important that members tend to their profile, and develop it over time... just as their reputation and relationships grow in the community over time.<div>&nbsp;</div> Would love to hear your thoughts and perspectives on developing yourself as a "brand"... this seems to be the hottest topic in cyberspace these days... maybe a future blog post?
