What happens when I sign up? [top]
When you sign-up, you create an account and a profile. Your user account is what you use to log in and
add information to any profile that you like. Your profile is where your friends add and rate information
that is added about you. It is also the location that any views and searches that you receive are tracked.
You want to promote your profile as much as possible in order to see who is interested in you
and viewing your profile.
What is the difference between profiles and accounts? [top]
Profiles are similar to articles on Wikipedia in that your friends can add information to your profile.
Profiles may be tracked by user accounts and users can upvote or downvote information added to profiles.
You control all information that is associated with your user account. User accounts are connected by
friend requests and you can track profiles from your user account by adding them to your
account's track list.
Your user account has a main newsfeed - by adding users as your friend, you are kept up to date
via that newsfeed of any content that your friends add to profiles across the site. By tracking a
profile, you are able to see updates that occur to that profile in your newsfeed, and if you opt
into it, you can receive email updates whenever content is added to a profile that you track.
How is tracking a profile (track list) different from friending a user account (friend list)? [top]

to get email updates about that profile. You can control the frequency of these updates by clicking
the Settings link, clicking Notifications, and then clicking Tracked Profiles. You will see the profiles
that you track and can edit your preferences via the same interface that appears immediately after you
add the profile to your track list.
Friending a user account allows you to see all activity of that user account in your newsfeed
(except activity done anonymously). You can also see how popular you are in that user account's friend
group by clicking View All on the user's account page and then selecting to order the list
by Popular (once you are their friend).

immediately recognize will dramatically increase your popularity also.
How does content make it to the top on a profile? [top]
Content increases its rankings on a profile by receiving more positive votes. Be sure to vote for
content that you like and vote against content that you don't like in order to help the most accurate
and appealing content about a person reach the front page of their profile. This helps the profile
portray the most accurate and up-to-date content about people. You can see all content about a
profile by clicking the View More link next to any content type on the main page of a profile.

views to your ProfileTracker profile by recording the users who come to your profile on ProfileTracker.

people viewed your profile from. This is done by ip-to-location technology which

and users from being added to the site. If captchas were not used, then you would see an endless

Using captcha codes allows us to continue to provide you the most relevant and accurate content, thereby
providing you with the best experience possible using our site.
