Profile and cover photo guidelines:
Square images will work best for avatars. 500x500 pixels will look great on all devices.
Your user profile also allows you to upload a cover photo. It is recommended to use a wider image (1000px or greater) with a shorter height for the best results on all screen sizes and device types.
How to search profiles:
By opening the menu in the upper left corner of the site, you will see a search icon. You can type in a username here to return all posts made by that user.
How to add a post:
The blue “Create” button is your entry point to create posts. For videos and photos, use the “Media” type. If you want to post a status update or start a text thread, use “Post”.
How to comment and like a post:
Scroll to the bottom of the post and you will see icons to leave comments. Click the heart icon on the post to like it.
How to curate your news feed (most recent, most popular, etc):
