I can see my profile from the perspective of a 1st level friend, but I would like to see how my profile looks for a specific friend of a friend, or even from a general "friends of friends" perspective.

Is this possible?

I don't think this is available anymore – Jason Axelson Nov 15 '12 at 0:47
@JasonAxelson not really, it's still around – Sathya Nov 15 '12 at 5:13
