Comment (by hnla):

 >The other thing is a bit broader: I would like to challenge the whole
 paradigm of "click on the relevant tab to see details". I feel it is much
 more sensible (and common) to show previews from each tab (groups,
 friends, photos...) on the main profile page itself. If someone wants more
 info they can click to see that tab. But just visiting the profile page
 should give the first-time visitor some sense of the member, and for that
 the activity feed by itself falls woefully short.

 Just to clarify one point, and while the above idea might be a good one,
 it starts to fall under the remit of themeing, something that would
 require specific re-factoring or creating of functions to re-work how BP
 spits out data in relevant screens/actions. The template pack process is
 one of looking at how the handling and presentation of the default BP
 output is managed, so it's focussed on UI/UX for the default activate and
 go BP content rather than manipulating functions to present new data

 However I'll also qualify that by wondering if templates packs presented
 - if they are - as plugins couldn't actually have the means to do some
 simple backend work from a functions file? but I'm idly musing there.
