    For some reason, I cannot edit my profile. I tried to make a change in my bio and I tried to add a few of my social media sites. I log in all of my updates, then I press the save changes button, but it never saves it. Am I doing something wrong?

      Sorry you are having problems updating your profile.
      I just logged in and updated the facebook, twitter, and bio information for an account using Windows 8.1 and Chrome  42.0.2311.135 m and was able to do so without any errors and the update was reflected immediately.

      I would suggest clearing your browser cache, restarting your computer, and trying another browser like Firefox. … r-problems

          Thanks for the information Missy.
          I was able to reproduce the issue with your account.
          At this time it does not appear to be an issue that affects all accounts, but there is no workaround for affected accounts.

          I have shared this information with our engineering team and we hope to have a solution soon. Thank for your continued patience and I hope you have a good weekend.

      I just confirmed that the profile now is recording change to the "In the Spotlight" and bio sections of the profile.

      As always, make sure to clear your browser cache and restart your computer if you have any problems.

    I'm experiencing the same difficulty Missy Smith so it's not just you; when one tries to edit the ' Bio ' section, or amend the ' In the spotlight ' function on the ' Edit Profile ' menu, it won't have it. I've tried a dozen times each time over about a seventeen hour period on a laptop and used an outside public source desktop computer as well using Windows 7 with browser specifications Google Chrome and Internet Explorer respectivley. These bugs are usually ironed out fairly quickly though.

      Thank you Romeos Quill. Very nice of you to let me know that I'm not the only one experiencing the difficulties. I'm sure now with more people with this issue it will be dealt with soon. Thanks!

    I have discovered Matthew, that it did allow me to change my picture and background, but it has yet to let me change my bio and add my social networks. So, yes, I'm trying to be patient, as I now know that I am not the only one having this issue. Thanks, and have a great weekend as well. smile
