The member profile page gives each member a home for their content, activity, and personal info.
- Multi-part profiles
Profiles contain multiple content sections which show profile information along with a member's photos, blog entries, comments, groups, friends, statistics, and other items you decide to enable. Various actions are available to members when viewing someone else's profile such as "Send Message", "Add Friend", "Block User", and more.

- Profile types
While most communities have just one profile type (i.e. "member"), you may want to have more than one. For example, if you are building a community for musicians and their fans, you can create a separate profile type for each. Musicians will get one set of profile questions (e.g. "Band Name", "Genre", "Instruments") and fans will get a different set of profile questions (e.g. "Name", "Favorite Musicians", "Favorite Genres"). There is no limit to the number of profile types you can create.
- Member levels & moderators
As the admin, you can create multiple membership levels on your social network. Member levels are useful for giving some members more privileges or more access than others. Grant or restrict access to features and specific sections of the community, or even give a membership level moderation or administrative capabilities to help you maintain your social network.
- Customizable Profile Questions
You control what questions people have to answer when they sign up and create their profile. SocialEngine comes with many common questions like "City", "Age", and "Relationship Status" for you to insert easily, with the option to create your own custom questions too.
- Conditional Questions
If you create a question with multiple options, you can give it one or more "conditional" profile questions. For example, if your pull-down box is named "Relationship Status", it might have possible options like "Single" and "Married". You could create a conditional profile question labeled "Anniversary Date" that only appears when the "Married" option is selected.
- Keyword-enabled Questions
You can choose to make a profile question keyword-enabled. This means that your members can enter in several answers to your question on one text field by separating them with commas. Each keyword will be linked to individually on their profile which allows viewers to click them and find out which other members have entered the same keywords.
- Personal Photos (avatars)
Members can easily upload a photo when joining or editing their profile to be used as their avatar. This is displayed on their profile, in search results, when they send a message, when they post something in the feed, and wherever else they have a presence in your community.
- Profile Privacy Options
You can allow members to select from several privacy levels when managing their profile. This limits who can view and write comments on their profile.
- Profile Posts
You can allow members to post comments on each other's profiles. The receiving user chooses who can post comments on their profile and has the ability to delete unwanted content when they wish.
- Custom profile layouts
If allowed, members can pick from various profile themes or even insert their own custom CSS styles to give their profiles a more personalized look.
