About You

We encourage all users to upload a picture of themselves for their profile. Adding a photo helps other users identify you, and adds a personal character and the sense of community to the Knowledge Network.

Knowledge Network profile pictures are square. If the image you upload is rectangular, it will be automatically cropped to the a square in the center of your image. To avoid undesirable crops, you may want to first crop your picture yourself using any basic image editing program.
