Adding Social Media Links : Hover over your profile header and click the "edit" icon on the bottom right. Paste your profile links in the corresponding fields.

To remove existing social links: clear the social media input field and save.

Customizing Your Profile Page Widgets

Our profile pages are an arrangement of widgets in a 4 column layout. Widgets are panels with different purposes and you are able to add, remove, resize and order. The site automatically adds certain widgets depending on your site activity until you modify your profile page. After that, you are in control.
Adding Widgets
Click the "Add Widget" button to view a side down management panel of the available widgets.

Some widget types allow more than one to exist on your page. You can tell how many you have and how many are available in the widget management panel.

Click the widget in the manager to add it to your profile page.
Removing Widgets
To remove a widget, click the arrow icon in the upper right of the widget you want to remove and select "Remove Widget".

Resizing Widgets
You can resize a widgets height by dragging the very bottom of the widget up or down. You will see "resize" arrows when your mouse is over the resize grab point.

You can resize widgets to be one to four columns wide by dragging the right side of the widget and dragging. Some widgets have size restrictions depending on the content it displays but for the most part, it's up to you. You will see "resize" arrows when your mouse is over the resize grab point.

Ordering / Moving Widgets : 3 Methods
There are 3 methods to change the order of widgets. I recommend using method #1.

Method #1 : Arrow keys ( Recommended Method )
Click the title bar of the widget you want to move to select it. You will see a icon with 4 arrows appear when it is selected. Then use your arrow keys to change its order.

Method #2: Use Widget menu
Hover over the widget you intend to move. Click the arrow in the upper right of the widget. Use the "Move" menu options to position it where you want.

Method #3: Click and drag
Click and drag a widget by its title bar and drop it where you want it. A solid colored box will appear as you drag the widget around the page, drop it on the solid colored box.
