Hi everyone, weโ€™ve been seeing a lot of new folks join the community over the past few weeks [yay!] and we wanted to send a quick reminder if you haven't already to be sure to personalize your community profile! 

One of the first steps to building your profile is by choosing an avatar that will represent who you are in the community. When you sign up for the community, you're automatically given a default avatar until you choose your own.

You can select an avatar from the Pinterest library or you can upload your own. Whether it's the avatar from your Pinterest profile, a headshot, your business logo, or your pet, the choice is yours! Another quick way to personalize your profile is by writing a quick bio that highlights who you are, your business/what you do on Pinterest and anything else you'd like to share with the community. Take a look at the infographic below to see how @foodiehomechef built her community profile for #inspo.

Personalizing your profile is a great way for community members to learn a bit more about you and your business or brand. To get started, click on your name in the top right-hand corner and select โ€œMy Settingsโ€ from the dropdown menu.  If you've customized your profile, we'd love to see it! Drop a screenshot or share what you've personalized in the comment section.

We wanted to highlight a best-in-class example and yours was one of the first that came to mind! ๐Ÿ’•

Thanks, I'm honored ๐Ÿ™‚  

 

Off topic... how do you add emoticons to a reply here at PBC? I don't see it in the options. When I type in a smiley face ":-)" it shows as an emoticon. But I see you have little hearts & others... how did you add them?

@foodiehomechef ah! Yes, if you have a Mac, an easy workaround is Control + Command + Spacebar and then the emoji keyboard will pop up. Alternatively, you can select the 'Insert emoji' button in the toolbar and choose whatever emoji you'd like to accompany your post.

@PinterestGabby I have a PC with Windows 10. I have an emoji add-on for my Firefox browser, but they don't seem to work here at PBC. I've always been able to use them, but not here ๐Ÿ˜ž

Which "Toolbar" were you referring to?

Interesting, I'll need to double-check on that re: emoji add-on for Firefox. The tool bar, also known as WYSIWYG is what you see when you're typing a response in the PBC. ๐Ÿ™‚
