On any social media site your profile is very important. It allows others to get to know who you are. I would suggest completing all the question and sections of your profile.
You should upload a photo to your profile. The picture should be friendly and inviting. You want to avoid pictures that don't represent you in a positive manner or represent you at all.
You also want to figure out a way to get your profile to stand out from the rest. Think about changing your background or color scheme.
