About this task
Show others where you are by specifying geographic location settings or profiles. You can specify geographic location information for more than one location, for example, for your London office and for your New York office. That way, when you are sitting in your London office, others see your London profile. When you are in your New York office, they see your New York profile.
When you log in for the first time or when you are in a new geographic location that does not have location settings specified, you will be prompted to specify geographic location information. To specify your geographic location settings, refer to the following steps, starting with step 2.
