Profile

From the Facebook app's left hand menu, you can select Profile.

The Profile information will appear.

The first section will be your Basic Information. Some of the information will already by filled in for you. This came from your registration.

You can edit and/or change your First Name and your Last Name. If you have Friends already invited, they will NOT see the name change. Only new Friends will see this change.

You can NOT change your Email. This is your PERMANENT Login and can not be changed. If you MUST change it, you will have to email Gluco-Share at support@gluco-share.org. We will discuss the issues with you and try to resolve them for you.

If you want to change your Password, type it in here. You will need to type it in twice to make sure you typed it correctly. Leaving both fields blank will keep your Password the same. If you change your Password, be sure to remember what you changed it to so you can log in later. However, if you are logging in via Facebook, your Password will not matter. Your Password is only used if you want to use Gluco-Share via a Mobile Device. We recommend you have a Password set and change it occasionally for your protection.

NOTE: If you registered via Facebook only, you must set a Password for accessing the Mobile version. We don't and can't use your Facebook Password, so a Password must be set for the Mobile Version if you wish to access via Email login.

Right now, we are not doing any specific implementations involving a Screen Name. However, if you enter a Screen Name now it will be used in the future. A Screen Name is used for posting high scores, winner announcements, etc. without showing your true name.

Your Date of Birth can NOT be altered. If you MUST change it, you will have to email Gluco-Share at admin@gluco-share.org. We will discuss the issues with you and try to resolve them for you.

When we send you a message or Notification or Reminder, would you like it sent via Email or via Text Message? If you enter a mobile number in this field and select a provider, you will have the option to receive Text Messages. If you leave the phone number blank then we will assume you don't wish to use Text Messaging. The options for Email or Text Message is selected for each Notification you set up. If you did not enter a phone number here, the only selection will be Email for receiving Notifications. For more information on Notifications, see our Tutorial section.

Your Address Information is optional. However, we like to keep track of where are members are located for comparing regions and demographics. Also, when we have contests and events that are specific to your area, we can alert you via Email. So we encourage you to give us an address you would like us to have for our records.

We would like to know your diabetic status for our records. Also if you have any relationship to someone who is living with diabetes, we would appreciate you sharing any of that information also.

Only share with us what you are comfortable in sharing. This information is only for comparisons and statistics internally.

When you are finished, click on the "Save This Information" button and you are done! You can edit this information at any time. Just be sure to always save if you are satisfied with your changes.
