When you first join and start using the Commons, you’ll probably want to personalize it. To register, you probably had to use a CUNY email address – but you might want to change that email address to the one you use more often. You can change your display name so that it’s not your username. For security, you’ll want to know how to update your password every now and then. If you are using the Commons as your online presence, you will want to start building your Commons Portfolio. You’ll want to join groups, follow sites, and make friends so that your My Commons page has content that is relevant to you.
