We’ve just released a new feature: “Viewers of this profile also viewed.” Now, whenever you view someone’s profile, you’ll see other related profiles, which you can click on and browse through.
Here’s an example of what you will see if you view the profile of TechCrunch blogger, Michael Arrington. You’ll see that people who viewed his profile also tended to view the profiles of Edgio CEO’s, Keith Teare, fellow tech bloggers: Jason Calacanis, Om Malik, Dave McClure, and LGiLAB’s GM, Ouriel Ohayon.
Maybe you’ve wondered in the past who’s been viewing your profile. If so, you’re not alone — it’s been one of our most common feature requests. I’m very happy to announce that we launched a new feature that’ll both tell you how many people have viewed your profile in the past week as well as reveal some interesting characteristics about them.
This was an interesting product for us to design: as the profile owner, we understand you’d like to see exactly who’s viewed your profile, but as a profile viewer, you want your privacy protected. We recently figured out an elegant solution that works for everyone: instead of showing you exactly who’s viewed your profile, we’ll show you some interesting information about the users’ industry or company background without revealing their identity.
