Does anyone here have more than one profile? If so, why?

    What different purposes do you have for different personas here on HubPages?

    I do not have another profile/name but I've heard people say they like to write more private thoughts under another name since it might be very personal and they have gotten to know people here or their family knows their regular name. Another reason is some people are trying different ways of making money (which I really do not know what they are trying exactly) but to test it, it is under another name. Those are the two reasons that I have heard of, hope that helps.

    I think that there are some with profiles that are used just for the sake of asking dumb questions.  I do not think yours is though.  I have asked this question a couple of times.  No one seems to know about some of the visitors who end up joining, doing one thing, like ask a question, then disappear.   I still end up scratching my head.

    One of the reasons some people may have multiple profiles is for marketing purposes and building backlinks. It's a common tactic used on article sites; using an army of article writers to produce hundreds of articles a week posted to multiple profiles. Probably the same can be achieved with HubPages, Squidoo, Scribd etc....
