A few tips on how to get started.

If you’ve signed up for a paid membership, go to your profile page and edit your public profile settings. Click on About. Here, you can change how your name appears, enter your Bio, CV, your business description, statement, your website or email. If the field doesn’t apply to you, or if you want it to remain hidden, just leave it blank and it won’t appear to other users.

While here, you can also select which users you want to view your information, public, site members or friends. Or, you can just select “Only Me” to hide. Then, under Preferences, you can select who can view or post on your wall as well as your messaging preferences.

Next, go to Notifications inside your About section under your profile. You want emails sent to you? Click those boxes to make them active. You want some activities removed from notifications? Click those”off”.

To upload a group of images with a Press Release or statement: go to Images under your profile and click on Create Album. There, you can add your info under Album description, select your audience.

Once created, the album will share to the community and will also be saved in your profile for visitors to browse.
