Why are Dopplr profiles so sparse?

Some weird Nokia concept confuses me

Dopplr is often cited as one of the hottest startups in the UK. It’s ability to allow you to see what city the people your social network are going to be in the future is very clever. It also spans both the consumer web and the enterprise. But it remains a little quirky round the edges (perhaps part of its appeal). Today their new Community Design Manager is asking users for feedback on the Manage Connections page. However, I would argue that there is a more pressing issue. User profile’s on Dopplr have no other information on the person. This is frustrating when you might have a lot of people in your network, and could use a reminder about their site or blog. Even Twitter allows a link to a site on profiles. This remains a glaring omission in the service and such an incredibly simple on to fix I’m surprised they haven’t done it yet.
