I'm currently designing a Profile page that requires users to add a variety of items using forms (different forms for each section). When they first create their account, the Profile will be completely empty.
For empty sections, we've decided to use placeholders. There will be several of these on the page, one for each empty section on the profile.
Currently, we're using the phrase, "You haven't added any [items]."
Are there any best practices surrounding this, pertaining to length, relative emphasis, passive voice, inline calls to action, etc?
