Going here, I see my name and the photo of myself I use in Gmail, along with a link to edit my profile:

google.com/s2/profiles/

(link doesn't work without the trailing slash)

Is this part of an existing service, or is it something new with profiles?

By the way, it showed me that since I was logged into my Google account. I assume it'd be blank or an error if you're not logged in (too lazy to check)

That showed blank for me even though I was logged in. I had to go here to see mine: google.com/s2/profiles/me

Do you think that is referring to Google Pinyin IME for China?

[put at-character here]Tony: You're right, I forgot from the blank profile I clicked on the "My Profile" link on top, which leads where you linked. Still not sure what this is all about though.

I think they're just "prettifying" the URLs used by profiles since they're slowly integrating them with more services, like Google Docs.

[put at-character here]Mambo, no idea?

FYI – the first link Niraj pointed to is dead now:

google.com/s2/profiles/

It seems this is a new service though:

www.google.com/accounts/Login? ...

Trying to login to google.com/s2/profiles/me constantly redirects me though.

Tony, I can login to google.com/s2/profiles/me.

Is this similar to what you are seeing?

google.com/s2/profiles/me gives me my 'Google Profile'

I can edit this – Full name, display name, about me, profile links, picture etc.

Is this what everyone else is seeing?

I can see the same as Kirby Witmer, but with my profile picture

I can see a similar thing to Kirby's screenshot here:

google.com/s2/profiles/1162269 ...

But I can see the URL in Kirby's screenshot includes the ID (like it's getting redirected). Previously, I also got redirected but since adding the service, I get caught in a vicious circle when visiting this URL:

google.com/s2/profiles/me

Which just keeps asking me to sign in here:

www.google.com/accounts/Servic ...

This might not be related, but it seems like it has something to do with profiles as well.

I noticed that if you add the updates.xml widget to your new iGoogle page it tries to show an iframe from the following URL that doesn't work:

profiles.corp.google.com/widge ...

The new link "Google Profiles" in our Google account, I don't understand what is new.
It is still the same data & template used since the lanch of Google Shared Stuff...
google.com/s2/widgets/ProfileV ...

So, Brian, if you look the previous URL closer, you will see that it is clearly related.

corp.google.com is a Google internal URL just FYI....
