I'd like to allow people to change the order of sections on their profiles. The idea is that if a person X has an impressive "Experience" section, while person Y has no experience but an interesting "Hobbies" section, then they can each change the order that sections are displayed to have their preferred section be above the others. (i.e. X could have Experience be the top-most section, Y could have Hobbies).

For the profile-makers, this seems good as it gives them more control over how people will see their profile (plus they put lacklustre sections at the bottom). But for the profile-viewers, it seems like they might be irritated by the extra time it takes to identify which section is which.

Are there any sites that implement this idea? If so, does anyone know what user opinion is on it? And lastly, what are your thoughts on it?

Here's a visual of the example above from the perspective of a profile-viewer:

Giving users ability to change order of information on their profiles
