Hi all,

People are behind everything that happens on Etsy, and we're making that much more apparent. Profile pages are becoming a better place for you to be yourself and connect with other Etsy members.

Now, in addition to your bio, and your name if you've chosen to display it, your Etsy profile will feature recent items you've listed in your shop, recent favorite items, recent favorite shops, and recent Treasury lists you've created. Favorites and feedback pages have received a fresh new design as well.

www.etsy.com/storque/article/10978/

These changes are now live for a small percentage of visitors, and will be visible to everyone very soon.

If you're signed in, you can click your username on the upper left-hand corner of any Etsy page to get to your new public profile.

If you don't want to show off your favorites, you can make them private via Your Etsy > Account > Privacy.

Click around, and check out the people that make Etsy the lively place it is.

Questions and comments are welcome in this thread.

Thanks,
Sean

I can't really be sure, but it looks like favorites will be shown in my profile. I liked being able to keep my favorites public (that whole KARMA thing... I really was into it), BUT not shown on my profile. I think it's too confusing for buyers and too easy for them to travel away from my shop. Will there be a way to hide my favorites from my profile without having to make them private?

I'm going to keep my uncivil comments to myself, but I'm not a fan of the new look.

I would love to be able to customize it. I don't want my favorites showing, but I don't really want to make them completely private either.

i don't mind the layout but i hate that my favorite items and shops are 2/3 of the side panel and my own shop is only 1/3....i think shoppers will not understand that my favorites are not my favorites in my own shop.

so i'm sort of 1/3 like, 2/3 not so much...

Exactly! HATE IT. I don't want to promote others IN MY SPACE. I don't want to hide my favorites but I'm going to have to.
