Creating a profile

Your profile is used to help ensure that you get matched with posts that are tailored to you. When you sign up with Movements.org you are asked to create a profile. The more information you provide, the more trusted you will be by other users, but you are not required to reveal any personal information. You can set your profile as Hidden, Secure, or Public.

     Hidden: Only your screen name is shared

     Secure: Only your screen name, skills, and languages are shared

     Public: All your personal information is shared.

Once you have an account, you will be able to login and finish creating your profile.
