5 Features of an Awesome JMP User Community Profile
Oct 31, 2016 12:57 PM
A complete profile gives Community users the opportunity to reveal their JMP interests and areas of expertise. Users who know of others with similar interests can more easily connect. For those who want to connect and collaborate openly with fellow JMP users, here are 5 steps to an awesome Community profile:
Step 1: Pick a user ID that reflects you. When you create your community account, use your name as your ID. This helps you build your personal brand. If your name is already taken, use a variation that correctly identifies you. For example, if William Jones were already taken, an alternative might be Will Jones.
Step 2: Pick an avatar that looks like you look now. An avatar is the image people have in mind when they interact with you in the communities. Choose a current head-and-shoulders photo that’s well-lit, focused and shows you smiling, friendly faces encourage people to connect.
If you’d rather use an avatar we provide, that’s OK too. If you don’t choose one, you’ll receive a default avatar. You can change it to another from our avatar library or upload your own.
Step 3: Write a brief bio that sets you apart. This is where you position yourself as an expert. Include key words that describe your JMP knowledge so your peers can easily find you via search. If you present at JMP Discovery Summit, note that. Are you active in a JMP Users Group? Write it down.
Include personal details too. Are you a runner? List your best race times. Do you enjoy cooking, knitting or Sudoku? Put it in there. This gives community members ways to identify with you.
By default, all community members can see your bio. If you prefer, you can change your profile settings to display your info only to people on your Friends List.
Step 4: Add links to your social media handles. This gives people other ways to connect with you.
Step 5: Update OFTEN! As your skills, areas of interest and expertise evolve, so should your bio.
