I am much used to Orkut, then any other social networking sites and I have reasons for that.
Its nice design, less intrusive ads, useful communities etc.
I always wondered, why people would leave their profile page empty, when they have come to a social networking site. Usually they must be interested in knowing people, to introduce themselves, to interact with others. Now for all these a well written profile will be a compliment.
So I figured out some of the points to write a good profile. I am writing by keeping Orkut in my mind, but it applies to other social networking sites like FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, Perfspot, Hi5, Bebo, Friendster, minglebox etc.
1. Write what you feel.
2. Write about how you are(Caution: Care to be taken, because people may use this information to harm you). Write only those things which you don’t mind others knowing about you.
3. Don’t try to pretend over smart.
4 .Don’t try to write something more complex then what you actually are.
5. Don’t just copy and paste some poetry or sayings, unless it relates about you or your character, behavior etc.
6. Make it simple, make it straight forward.
7. Express yourself completely.
8. Don’t use bad words, it will surly harm your reputation. If it is inevitable, then use it like F*CK O*F. This simply shows that, you are forced to use it and are not actually willing to use such words. Use this at extreme cases. And it would be better to completely avoid such things.
9. Use similes, font formatting etc wherever required, to present things more lively.
10. Do not include many external links in About me section. It is better, if no links are placed. Because there is always an option called Webpage and wishlist in your Orkut profile for such things.
It is a very bad and spammy practice to put all your refferal links, affiliate links in your “About me” section.
11. Friends and friends of friends who visit your profile are more tend to read the complete profile, if it contains something real, unique to yourself and something more about what you feel.
12. Using bit of humor is always good.
13. And don’t use more humor, if you are a bit of serious guy/girl. Because it makes your profile look like fake.
15. Professional and personal things sharing in Profile pages depends upon individuals depending upon their purpose of signing up for that particular social networking site.
16. Choose the theme which you feel the best.Because, this also shows about what kind of stuffs(design) you like. And some people can guess about your psychology by seeing your choice of theme.
I personally love the default, clean, classic theme itself.
A month ego I had written “About me” in Orkut using all the above mentioned points in my mind. And I could see drastic changes in my friends(who use Orkut more and who had read my profile) behavior with me.
I could see that, they were more polite and more friendly. Now all of my friends know what makes me happy and what disappoints me. Now a days, life with my friends have become more easy, because by now they know everything about me, that I could never tell them directly. Many things will hurt friends, when told directly.
My profile content is displayed below. If you want to skip, then directly scroll down and continue reading. Lines have been put, to separate my profile content.
Here it goes:-
My Parents call me SATISH.
And I am registered in my death certificate as..oh sorry,
in my birth certificate as SATISH.B
And I don’t know what people think of me..So what I can say is only “I DON’T CARE”, would you mind it? ..Again, I Don’t Care!
“I am a harmless Creature, until all my harmones work properly”.
I hate people who act over smart..
I take lot of time to adjust with anybody..might be a drawback of me.
I don’t underestimate anyone.
Misunderstanding has played appreciably great strocks in my life and I am crazier than that, because I enjoy it..
And I can forgive the person who kills me, but not the one who misused me.Now I know, you are thinking, what the hell this person might be of use??
The answer is, I also don’t know.But still I hate people who misuse me..now leave it.
I love to live with my friends and for friendship I don’t consider their any previous achievements. I love all those who feel comfortable with me and who make me feel comfortable with them…
And I never ever go behind any person(irrespective of their SEX) who don’t like my attitude and don’t want to be my friend..
I believe in GOD..I am optimistic.I am Moody.
I always think positive–> Which have never helped me to achieve anything, but still it has become a habit.
I forgive people soon, as I feel this life as too short and have no time to keep on proving others as wrong and we the only perfect!
I love innovative things.
I love to be Honest.
And one thing I have observed about myself is,I don’t go behind famous people, as it would be an extra burden to them. **I don’t like to disturb anybody**
I enjoy the company of people who are FREE.I too love to live freely!
I believe that people wont understand the importance of the other person until that person is found dead.
And I am not an important person,
can you guess Y ?
because……………I am still alive.
I respect each and every person on this earth.
I Love each and every person on this earth..and in very rare cases people get confused about the colour of my love Love, Love, Love, Love,Love, Love…owfff I never knew that there are soo many colours to Love, when I was studying in Like(Like -> A place near Manglore,where I studied from 6th to 10th).What..what are you thinking?? — All these lines about Love is just a contribution or just a dedication from me to the upcoming Valentines Day and nothing serious in my life.
For those who doesn’t like me, I don’t have any comments, because its their life and I am no one to poke my nose..
And for those who hate me….hope I am not soooo bad(Anyway, its left to you).
I never think bad for anyone….etc!
One thing which I always want to tell all those people who want to hear from me is…please be original..Be how you are and never try to act as someone else.
Be proud of who you are and try to be yourself in most of the times.Don’t copy things from others.
Write about yourself 4m ur heart 2 ur profile.
I guess, you are my friend..because you read until here, soooo long.Do you know….Friendship isn’t about…whom you have known the Longest….who came 1st or who Cares the Best…Its all about Who came and Never Left.
And I have crises of such friends….but still as I said earlier, I am very much optimistic, and I am still in a hope that I will also get friends who will stay till the end, even when there is no use from me.
Hope this is the 1st time in my life after my 10th standard final exam, I am writing something sooo long.
Some times I feel that I have the ability to change every thing in this world, but luckily soon I realize that I wasn’t able to change myself since past 6 years!
I love animals a lot…..in zoo.But some of my friends prefer to live in Home.hahah..Oops,Sorry.I know, its a bad joke!
