Seeing Yourself How Others See You

One thing that comes up with your Profile is how can you see your Reviews and Lists page "from the outside," that is, seeing yourself how others see you. This is nice if you're unclear about what info is being revealed about you, or how private everything is.

Until there is a specific button for this, we offer a work-around: all you have to do is delete part of the URL.

Here's how your "Reviews and Lists" page URL looks normally:

http://www.netflix.com/ReviewsAndLists?prid=50321314X9&myprofile=y

Delete everything after (and including) the question mark, so it looks like this:

http://www.netflix.com/ReviewsAndLists

Voila. You'll see how your look from the outside. We'll make this easier at some point, but for now, this works like a charm.
