I have a pretty simple profile page on my website which already contains some elements: the banner, profile picture, about section, timeline, suggested users panel and some various other little things. However, there is a fairly large unwanted white space (roughly 200 pixels) on the left side of the timeline.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to fill up this space as most of what's available (as far as posts and user info go) is already placed on the page. Someone suggested adding a user gallery, and although it's somewhat a good idea, the website is an audio streaming platform - not an image sharing one.

What are some suggestions? Every idea is welcome :)

    Don't add stuff in just for the sake of it. If the layout doesn't work so well for the content you know you need on here then change the layout. Less is more. – JonW Aug 2 '19 at 11:20
  • Swap the right sidebar to the left and expand the main content to take up the rest of the space. – Bowen Aug 2 '19 at 18:55

If at the moment the product has no plans or iteration of development for the next functionalities, you can move the middle section more to the left and in the future develop functionalities depending on the user's needs
