IMP : If you want to Know WHY you should use JoomlaXi’s Profiletypes rather then in-built profiletypes in JomSocial-2.0, Please read : http://goo.gl/Csp1L
If you use JomSocial for a particular website and you want to categorize your users into groups and manage their profiles separately. Suppose you have a school website and you like to group students, teachers and other staff and want to have different types of profiles for them. But you see the fields used in the teacher’s profile are going to be different from the fields in the student’s profiles.So what you require is something that can create unlimited profile types in your website with varied fields because the fields in one profile need not be meaningful for other user types.
