Why post a picture? 

Three quick reasons:

- It builds trust. There's something about seeing people face-to-face that helps us feel a greater sense of confidence in engagement. Posting a picture is as close as we get to that in-person experience while communicating online.

- It helps you find and connect with people in-person. I'm sure many members could attest to hearing this remark at least once in the past year: "I know you. I recognize you from [insert social media tool here]!" Plus, there's nothing like being at an event and finally meeting someone that you've only known virtually. Having seen their photo for all those months makes it even sweeter to see them for real.

- It establishes you as, well, you. - You're not the Edu4drr logo. We're proud of it and think it's pretty cool, but we'd prefer to see you!

Now the how:

1. In the upper right, just below your name, Go to Settings.

2. On the left side of the page, Go to Profile.

3. Right there at the top, we make it really easy - hit the button marked "Choose Photo".

4. You probably have a great photo of yourself somewhere on your computer. If so, navigate to that folder and file, then Double Click on the Photo.

NOTE: We recommend a headshot. If you don't have one, but have other photos that could work if cropped (i.e. in a group, photo of just you but head is smaller, etc.), there are some free, easy-to-use websites likePhixr and Pixer that don't even require a log-in to upload and fix your photo.

5. Once you have found and uploaded the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page and hit Save.

That's it. That was easy, eh?
