As with any social networking site, you're going to need to set your preferences. You can choose to show your full name or not, upload a profile picture, list a website and add a bio of up to 150 characters. You can also manage push notifications from here to edit whether you're notified when you've had new likes or comments.

If you're the private type, rather like Twitter you can make your profile private so you have to authorise every person that asks to follow you - and they won't be able to see your snaps before you do.

Please help us to maintain a healthy and vibrant community by reporting any illegal or inappropriate behavior. If you believe a message violates theCode of Conductplease use this form to notify the moderators. They will investigate your report and take appropriate action. If necessary, they report all illegal activity to the proper authorities.
