|Member Profile Instructions|
Member Profile Homepage
When you log in to the website, you will land on your Member Profile Home page. On the main Profile Home page you'll see your Feeds, Wall, Bio and photo, should you choose to upload one.
On the right side of the Member Profile page are quick links to get you to various components in your Member Profile. Below is information about each of these components.
Photo – you can upload your photo by clicking on the Photo box and selecting Add Photo.
– Click on this icon to access your Photos, Blogs, Files and Links, and Favorites. It is located at the top of your Profile Home page.
Pages – If you create your own Pages, you will see a link listed at the top of your Profile Home page that will provide you with a drop down list of your pages.
Feeds – Similar to feeds on Facebook, feeds allow you to post and view continually streaming updates from your Groups and Connections you make within the community.
Wall – Again, similar to Facebook, you or others can write on or post to your Wall.
Bio – Your Bio is essentially the information you provided on your member application or during membership renewal. This section shows the information you’ve chosen to share with other members when they search your name in the Member Directory.
You can manage the settings for each of the above items in your Member Profile by selecting Preferences. You can determine who will see this information on your Member Profile Home page by selecting to make them viewable to the public, members only or only to you and system administrators. You can learn more about these sections in other How To pages.
