The word “Profile” has a literal term and moving into the digital world a more abstract term. In the real world, a profile can be really anything viewed from its side angle, for example a silhouette can be the basic shape of the profile of someone’s face. A profile is also information about a person which ties us to the digital world where people post their profiles online. A virtual profile could be a Facebook page or a blog that someone creates for themselves. On a virtual profile we allow information about ourselves to be shared with the public by posting pictures, biographies, thoughts, ideas etc. that relate to us.
All of our ideas generated came directly from the wonderful Dictionary.com where definitions of the word profile sparked our own thoughts to make the idea map and create “profiles” of people through generous acts of kindness.
