When you click on someone’s profile, no matter the platform and there’s an option for a profile header and it is BLANK. To me personally, that’s an indication that the profile may be SPAM, or the person just really doesn’t give a rat’s behind. So why should I about them? I say that they don’t care about their image or lack in some way. I’m I just a social media snob? Studies show I’m not alone in this electronic first impression stream of thought.

So when creating and updating your OutBüro profile, be SURE to upload a profile header image that’s cool, interesting, pretty and/or says something about you and your interests. A picture is worth a thousand words and currently, besides the profile image of your smiling face, this is your opportunity to immediately make an impact, an impression on your profile visitor. Make it count.

From your OutBüro profile page click the camera image in the top right area of your profile header image area.
