Now that you’ve joined up or logged in and filled out your profile, it’s time to take a look around! Start by clicking on the Members tab to see who else is on board.
You’ll come to a listing of people. You can click on their names to get to their pages. You can also add them as a friend, either here or once you get to their page.
Click on a member’s name and you’ll come to their page. You’ll see their activity feed and will have another chance to add them as a friend.
You can also introduce yourself to the community and let others know what you’re up to! To do this, hover over the “Howdy, yourname” link at the top of the page until you see the drop-down menu.
Select Activity-Personal and you’ll be able to add a multi-media update, right beneath your profile and background photos. Your friends will be able to see it.
You can add an image, a video or a link to your message.
Okay, now you’ve made a few friends and added some updates of your own. What else can you do?
Try checking out some groups. View groups by clicking on the groups link:
May I recommend you start at the “Introduce Yourself” group? Join the group, then say hello to the folks who are there!
Finally, be proactive! Those who do nothing get nothing. Ask for help and don’t be afraid to experiment and poke around. The more you participate and respond, the more visibility you’ll earn. It’s just like networking, only in the cloud!
