Having been in Los Angeles just one day earlier, Sofia couldn't have looked any happier as she spent some fun in the sun during her cross-country getaway.
On the left, you should see a section labeled Visibility Options. You can still contact people when your profile is hidden but they won’t be able to look at your profile so that sort of defeats the purpose (so remember to make yourself visible if you start contacting people).
There several things hiding your profile do but primarily it removes you from search results.
This package also allows the member to see when people open emails that they send and their profiles are shown to new members first. As a side note, I had always thought that the 6-month guarantee came free with the standard 6-month plan but it is actually a separate plan (that costs a dollar more per month than the standard 6-month plan).
I suspect this had been changed at some point but it’s only a dollar more per month so I guess it isn’t a huge problem. One question had asked if a green profile meant the user was a subscriber.
Most people look at a large number of profile but contact very few (or sometimes none at all).
