Each user profile in SharePoint Server 2010 contains 46 default user profile properties. These user profile properties store information about a user. An administrator can apply a policy to a user profile property to configure how personal information is used. Depending on the selected user profile property, some policy settings are configurable, while others are not.

 

For more information about user profiles and profile properties, see the following articles on TechNet:
