I hate limited profiles. No, seriously. I hate them so much it's probably unreasonable. When someone adds me or accepts a friend request, and I go onto their (now available to me!) profile page and I realize that I can't access half of their information, it bugs me. It bugs me more and more as I try to communicate with the person. Why? Well, a few raesons.
I can understand limited profiles to an extent. Maybe if you add your boss on Facebook or something (but why? Why would you do this thing?). Maybe if it's someone you've only known over the internet (that I totally get - it's just sensible).
But if you know me in real life, or have met me multiple times, or even knew me intermittently over multiple years without being fast friends, why the hell will you only put me on a limited profile?
I don't DO limited profiles. I did it for a bit because of excessive drama on my Facebook, but my blog and twitter and Buzz were all still public. I figure - you spend about $15 and you can get virtually any information about me that you want. So, why waste your money? I'd rather you spend the money buying products I advertise - and with public profiles you can get that. The only reason my Facebook is friends only is for my family - and that's it. If they didn't have objections, I'd probably leave it open.
But I don't get the limited profiles otherwise. If you know me, why won't you let me know you? All it does is make me wonder if I should really trust you. It makes me feel like you're hiding something. It makes me feel like you're lying. And I really hate lying.
Do you have a limited profile? Why do you use it, if you do? If you don't have one, are you on my side of the argument, or is it just inconvenient to bother with it?
