I have posted suggestions similar to what Penny suggest in a blog post sometime ago here http://indigomertel.posterous.com/how-linden-lab-could-simplify-promotion-in-se and here http://indigomertel.posterous.com/linden-lab-has-the-best-social-tool-and-doesn, though more focused on groups.

It seems as Linden Lab found my suggestion on web groups interesting, as mentioned by Bob Komin in a tweet of a couple of days ago: https://plus.google.com/102847932402612629278/posts/7Hcsv38Zvqk

What is this social networking stuff, I don't even get it in the first place? So why should we turn our SL profiles into something facebookish?
I'm a profile junkie, modding mine and scanning those of others all the time. My favourite part of the profile are the picks, and I'm kinda sad they are not easily visible for V2 users anymore. And LL have changed the format/layout as well. Just cropped all the picks and personal photos to suit the size ... and now they changed it again. So what is this? Functional and viewable profiles exclusively for V1 users? Because the V2 noobs are not supposed to spend any time and creativity into maintaining their own profiles???

This is just one step in LL's attempt to turn SL from a college into a kindergarten.

Errr... I might be missing something here. Penny suggests the following for SL profiles :
"You'd have the About tab which included a brief profile, interests tags, a website link, a marketplace link and a "home" spot where you could place a "pick your home or other significant SL location like a favourite hangou I'd add a "Friends" tab or similarly named for you to list people significant to you. These "Friend Picks" would include their profile image, a screenshot of your choosing, their name (click on to go to profile) and whatever sort of description you add to the pick."

To me, this describes profiles as they've been for the past 5 years Ive been on SL.
