We have a new plugin called BuddyPress Profile Shortcodes available that will allow you to pull information from a user’s profile whether it is the current or another user. You can either get this plugin through here or you can add it through the plugin browser on your own wordpress site.
It appears simple enough but I myself have already found it quite useful. Best of all it is free! There will be more free plugins in the future too, plus many more premium ones coming. Stay tuned.
