Setting up your profile is the first step to becoming active in your community. Your user profile provides other community members with an easy way to learn about your experience, skills, and interests. Your profile shows up in search results when other members search for keywords contained in your profile. You can update your information at any time.
To set up your profile:
- Click the avatar menu and then Edit Profile:
- Enter your information on the Profile Details tabs. Provide as much information as you like. Maybe a quick blurb about yourself and what you're all about? All required fields (marked) will need to be filled in before you can save the profile. Note that your profile will be found when people search, so if you have professional roles or interests that would be useful for others to know, be sure to include them. Your community manager may set up certain fields for you, such as your username, and you may not be able to edit them.
- Review the Privacy tab to control what fields are visible to others.
- On the Avatar tab be sure to upload a photo so we know who you really are. Glamour shots, caricatures, and ironic icons welcome.
- Click Save.
