Publishing Files to your Profile is currently in beta. Only members of the Figma Community beta can publish Files.
Community Files can be any Figma File the creator chose to share with the Community.
File creators can share Files and Plugins with the Figma Community. They can do this by publishing them to their public Profile.
Every Profile has a unique Figma URL. You can share your link to share your Profile with others. Or to view visit another person's Profile and any Files and/or Plugins they've shared.

View Profiles and Files
The only way to access a File published to the Community, is through the creator's Profile.
Every Public Profile has a @handle. This handles makes up their unique Figma URL e.g. https://www.figma.com/@figma
You can use this URL to view a person's public Profile. You won't have to be a part of their Team, or Organization, to view their Profile.
At the top of the Profile you can view their Name, Avatar, and Cover Artwork.
On the right side, you can view some basic information. This includes their Name, Location, Website, and Description.
In the main body of the Profile, you can view any Files and Plugins they have shared with the Community. You can identify Plugins via the Plugin Icon - the rest are Files.
