How do I set up or change my profile?

To edit your personal information or picture on your social network profile:

  1. From the navigation menu on the left, select My Wall.
  2. On your profile, click Edit Profile.
  3. Edit your personal information. Don't forget to add a bit about what you do in the Description box under Basic Information and your contact information in the boxes under Contact Information.

    Note: Some information is read only. If you need to change the read-only information, contact your administrator.

  4. To change your profile picture, click it, then select Upload Photo. Select a .gif, .png, or .jpg file. After you select a picture, you can use the crop tools to re-size it. Your picture is scaled to 150x150 pixels square.

    Note: If you use Mozilla Firefox and JAWS, you must disable pop-ups before you upload a profile picture. If you don't disable pop-ups, the upload dialog won't appear.
