Today's action items will be quick and easy!
We're going to visit a few of PeaceNext's functionalities that we haven't looked at yet.
1. Update your status. You can do this by clicking on "My Profile" and filling out the black field at the top of the screen. When you do so, it will update your profile and will post to PeaceNext's Latest Activity feed. It's a good way to share short, concise bits of information, and to let people know what you've been up to.
2. Customize your page. You can do this by clicking on "My Profile."
Any of the center-column boxes with headlines on a yellow-field can be dragged-and-dropped. I recommend moving your Profile Information to the top, but you can use whatever layout you prefer.
If you want, you can further customize your page by clicking on "Manage my Page or Photo" in the lefthand column. You can update your photo here, change the thematic scheme for your personal page, and change settings for what sort of notifications PeaceNext will send you.
Just make sure you click "Save" after making any changes, or they'll be lost!
3. Take a moment and answer the polls we've set up. You can do this by clicking on "Polls."
4. Interact with at least 3 other members of PeaceNext. At least one of these should be someone whom you do not already know.
Our action items so far have focused on the basic setup of the site and how to use its primary features. During the next week, we will be looking at opportunities to interact through groups, events, blogs, and discussion boards.
