Updating Your Profile

Version 22

    On Facebook or Linkedin, is your profile updated ?

    Probably, because it fosters more interactions, with friends or Facebook, and colleagues, ex-workmates or head hunters on Linkedin

     

    The same applies to BMC Communities: if your profile is completed and updated...

    • you'll have more people interacting with you to help out (often following you, making you far more influential)
    • your skills will be visible for the whole community, fostering more Business

    Main fields:

    • Name: include your full name, first name would have too many duplicates
    • Company name: important for advanced permissions (no worry, you can tweak privacy settings afterwards)
    • Upload a Picture: enables far more friendly interactions, and makes sure you can easily F2F with people in the next  local or WW User Event
    • Pick an Avatar: set the tone for interactions
    • Job Role and Job Title: set expectations on your needs
    • Country: helps to know your timezone
    • Role: important for advanced permissions (no worry, you can tweak privacy settings afterwards)
    • URL: drive traffic to your Linkedin account or Blog
    • Twitter ID: how to find you on Twitter (share your handle, tips here)
    • Biography: Free text, many users describe the Products and version they use (tech context). I've used it to summarize interests, and add my Skype ID
