A recent article argues that as Facebook continues to add more features and partnerships to its real-time news feed, a person's actual profile page is less relevant than his or her daily activity, including "likes," comments, status updates, and now, places. The article states that profile pages were more important in the early days of social networking when sites like Friendster and MySpace ruled supreme, but the game changed in 2006 when Facebook introduced its live feed.
I don't know about you, but I do still regularly check friends' profile pages regardless of their feed activity. In fact, if I notice a friend has been particularly inactive on Facebook, I'm more inclined to check out his or her profile page. What about you? Do you think that profile pages are irrelevant?
