Social networking websites are blowing up all across the world. There are many systems which have a need for user profile pages which display personal information on each member. These are often accompanied by an avatar or user photo of some kind, and these layouts are often very unique.

I have put together this case study of 35 excellent user profile webpages for design inspiration. You should check out each of these sites to see how they’ve built a structured profile page. You have to consider user information along with site data such as checkins, news posted, friends, followers, etc. This new age of social media has brought about dynamic trends in designing layouts for interactive websites.

    Wow, a list of websites and a partial screen grab of their profile pages. I think it’s awesome that you haven’t tried to influence the reader by expressing any sort of opinion of your own, or by explaining why you consider these to be ‘excellent’ examples. This sort of thing really enriches the web, thanks!

    No to sound rude or anything, but Only 3 or 4 of those designs are actually inspiring. I’m a web design and developer myself and I know how hard it is to sort and display user profiles… though this post might give me some tips…
    I’m pretty sure there are better examples out there.

    These are some fantastic examples for user profiles. I would say this is an excellent collection, especially because you don’t find many other articles on this same topic.

    Worst article ever.
    Completely useful without any information, and the majority of them are terrible designers anyway.

    Although the content of the Bebo profile did make me laugh.

    I’m a UX Designer. It’s often difficult to find examples to riff off of when I need to design something as boring as a user profile. And it actually doesn’t matter whether the all the examples are”good” or not. It doesn’t. Looking at examples of profiles that are “bad” is often just as helpful because you can see what others have tried and identify things you don’t want to do yourself. So haters can hate on this list, but I think it has a lot of value. Thanks!
