About this task
You can keep people informed about what you are doing by regularly updating the personal status message that displays under your profile picture. For example, you might post a message to let people know that you are busy preparing for a meeting or that you are about to leave the office for the day. Or you might want to share a link to an interesting website with the people in your network. When you paste a URL into the status message field, it is automatically converted to a hyperlink.
To update your status message, complete the following steps on your profile page.
