Get all your questions answered about our latest Photosynth Technical Preview.
I am hoping that there will be some time of profile info implemented in the preview soon. When I click on someone's profile I see their synths but get no info about them. I would like this to find out more about the context of how people use the service and to promote my own company, work, uses etc. It would help in motivating me to post more.
A look at any popular social network will confirm that this is common best practice.
Something as simple as the ability to choose an avatar also helps aid in the sense of getting to know someone and could spruce up the forums significantly.
I'm sure that you don't want people's profiles to become overrun with links, but the ability to list a few URLs would be much appreciated, as in a Twitter profile card.
Also take note of how YouTube offers the ability to link to multiple services on your profile and fetches the favicon for each service to make it feel customized.
