Hi there! I've recently run into an interesting challenge where a new
community site is launching, however, for it to be useful the member
profiles need to contain content, more than just a name and a city.
As an experience architect, I wouldn't create a process where a user would
end up at a page with no content, or "coming soon." So, why do social
network sites allow sparsely filled member profiles to show up in
search/browse results? Is this a good convention? My instinct says no.
However, I can't find any documentation on the matter. Can anyone provide
solid data as to why or why not to show this type of content?
