Ideabasket/What Needs Love in Profile "Social Links"

This is a thread for the "social links" sections of people's profiles. Let's make this a single thread for the mods, to: (a) report changed social link URL formats, (b) "social link" services that have gone altogether and (c) throw in any ideas of popular or up-and-coming services that you'd like to see there and that have a publicly accessible URL format for people's profiles.

Treat member's websites as external links?

I have my preferences set to open links in a new window, but if I click on a user's website from their Profile page, the site opens in the same window. Is it possible to get those links to act like other external links? Is there a downside to changing it that I'm not seeing?

Will stats for AskMe be available on the profile page?

Are we adding stats for AskMe to a user's info page? That is how I mostly keep track of threads in which I am usually only marginally involved. If this has been covered before I openly apologize.

Listing links on user profile pages

To avoid cluttering up the front page, is it OK for those of us who come across a lot of interesting links to use our user pages to list some of those we'd like to share but probably won't merit much discussion? I'm worried about using up bandwidth and the old accusation of using MetaFilter as one's personal blog.

If it's OK, what's the acceptable limit? Would five or six links be acceptable? Or should the opportunity be used (as some, like Zachsmind, have done) to list some of our favourite MetaFilter threads, for example? Please advise.
