Innovation: User Profile Tags / Show the Tags and Interests you like


- show on our Profile-Page which "Tags / Topics" you are interested in
- Users with common interests will find each other easily
- find threads based on your personal interests easily

it is literally the same "tags" we already have with XenForo 1.5
Just giving the user the ability to add some "tags" to his Profile-Page.

Thereby it is easy and quick to find other users with common interests and therefore fuel discussion.
Also, you can find threads based on your interests immediately after filling-in your Profile-Page with these "interests".

It is not a big deal to implement this.
It is just the ability to put the already existing "tags"-system onto the "User Profile".

My mockup above is not great from a "design perspective".
It needs to be made a bit "nicer".

I found a very nice example for this suggestion:

In this example, the Tags are named "Skills".

(in this example, the Tag-Cloud is named "Popular Skills"):
Browse Hourlies by Skills -

User Profile-Page
(in this example, the Tags are named "Skills") - see the Sidebar at the left:
Hire Supratim D. on PeoplePerHour

Resource Manager / Member-List
this might be an example for the ability to filter the RM and the Member-List by "Tags" or "Skills":
PeoplePerHour - photoshop freelancers, freelance professionals & consultants

Interesting. Facebook may be doing something similar. Facebook is testing out LinkedIn-style profile tags

Alternatively, it could be made like this:

If you "Like" a "Tag", then this "Tag" shows up at your "Profile Page".
