Yahoo automatically creates a profile page for each new user who sets up an account with the online portal. Users can display their name, age, location and other details on a Yahoo profile. The only way to view someone's profile is through Yahoo Instant Messenger.
Sign in to Yahoo Instant Messenger.
Find your friend on your contacts list. If they aren't online and aren't visible in your list, click the arrow next to Contacts above your list of contacts and choose "Show Offline Contacts."
Right-click the person's name and choose "View Profile."
