What would you like to show on your profiles on Product Hunt?
Hello, Hunters! Currently, your profiles on Product Hunt mainly show what products you have upvoted and don't tell much about you. We'll be updating them soon, and we want them to be better for you. What would you want to add, change or remove? How can we make them useful to you? 👀
A Web3 address will be super useful this year. Anyone with a .eth or .crypto/.nft address can link it directly on their product hunt account.
@syswarren I am thinking it would be great if we could include a short bio. Then maybe include our email or some other way for people to reach out to us. I realize this is done on Twitter now.
@syswarren @jasoncavness What do you want to share about yourself in your bio? What do you want to learn about others from the community?
@syswarren @product_at_producthunt I would want mine to say - Jason Cavness is an INFJ retired U.S. Army officer who served for 25 years, to include 8 years as an enlisted member. He is currently CEO/Founder of CavnessHR. CavnessHR delivers HR to U.S. companies with 49 or fewer people through their HR platform along with a HR Business Partner. He hosts The Jason Cavness Experience where he talks to small business owners, founders and other interesting people. His personal motto is “Be Great Every Day” He does his best to add value, help to solve problems daily and to help others become better. He has a Master’s in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma and is SPHR certified. I like the ideas being mentioned for some type of video also.
That sounds nice - some ideas: - Short bio and intro of the current project you are working on - What kind of network or communities are you interested in - Maybe, some list of favorite communities - that could help others discover more communities around specific topics - Are you willing to support other makers? How can you support? (From early beta tester to other roles) - A button to contact the person in case there is match
Adding a bio would be great. Allow images and eventually one video as well to get a chance to describe what apps you built along the way/what kind of serial entrepreneur you are, without requiring people to dig the "made" tab.
Lots to unpack here but I think it would be a benefit to see what products people are actually paying for. Not only do people use ProductHunt to discover products. Makers use it to find potential customers. Also allowing people to set a rate for a product review or feedback is something I could see being a benefit. Oftentimes people need want product enthusiasts to test their products.
@braysonware How would you want to search for and then use the verified user data to find potential customers? Are you wanting to build ancillary products to what users currently pay for or is there a different scenario you're thinking about?
Would be quite relevant to have "your own product(s)" promoted on top of your profile page. Could be your actual company (which can increase your # of hunted product if it is not) or your side projects (wh often start there)
As a user, I'd like for products I have made to be shown first and foremost. Products that I've upvoted doesn't make sense to me. I see Product Hunt as a way to find people to collaborate with. So maybe like a "Open to Work on Design Projects" type of thing. And also a way to easily contact them! Like a mailto: button

Hi @syswarren , I think the profile as it looks right now is not bad at all. There are links (website, Twitter), it shows the followers, following, things you hunted or made, comments and so on. It's pretty complete I guess. If you are working on something new, let's just wait for the updated version and them maybe we can work on that to improve it a bit, although I think it's gonna be perfect already. :)
Would be nice to show which 🧠 mindset/📚methodology/ 👅 product taste / 💈 style has influenced this person. Can be the form of label #hackingGrowth #dataDriven #designSprint #JBTD #hooked #gamification #behavioralScience etc. This can foster a mutual learning atmosphere and knowledge community.
Honestly, I just like them the way they are 🖤 Maybe a way to verify your identity, mandatory twitter handle or something.
