What’s new with GeoNet? Platform and Profile Updates

New Profile Changes

We are excited to announce a recent update to the GeoNet profiles making them more streamlined, easier to navigate, and a simplified look. The new profile layout will have:

  • The primary profile picture and the avatar are now one in the same. If a member has a different profile picture than their avatar, when this update takes place, the profile picture will become part of the picture gallery at the bottom of the new profile, and the current Avatar will be the profile pic at the top of the profile page.
  • The email and preferred address will only show if the user has indicated they want it to be public.
  • There will be one column for profile details and one for content activity.
  • A new navigation bar includes bookmarks, rewards, and calendar.
  • And, now you can add a banner image to dress up your profile.
