NOTE 2: Please know there is still a LOT of work going into the network in the next few weeks. There will be cosmetic changes, new sidebar content added and a ton of stuff happening under the hood. What is here now is the basic framework and infrastructure.

Welcome to the first round of Beta testing here at the new! If you’re reading this, you are one of the first 50 people to get a glimpse of the custom social environment we’ve built here. We’re excited to have you here and look forward to your feedback!

Here are a few things to help get you started.


The first thing you’ll want to do is visit your profile and complete the fields available in your settings. Normally this will all be taken care of as part of the “welcome experience” registration process. But because you were manually added to the site this is not yet done.

Hover over the “profile” tab in the menu and select “settings” to access these fields.

You can (and should) also upload a timeline header as well as an avatar photo.
