Your public profile page is where information can be found about you by other members of Scribd. Whether you're an author who wants to display a bio or a reader who wants to update their profile picture, you can change what's displayed on your public profile by editing your Account settings.
While logged onto your account, move your mouse to the icon in the upper right hand corner of the page next to the 'Upload' button. When you hover over the icon, the drop-down navigation menu appears and you'll be able to select the Account link. This is where all the editing magic will happen.
This first page is the 'Personal' tab. Here, you can change your username, password, and email address. This page allows you to link or unlink your Scribd profile to Facebook as well.
You can also input a full name to be displayed on your page, enter a mini biography, share where you're located, link to your website, and add a photo to your profile.
If you've linked Facebook to your Scribd account, your Facebook profile photo will automatically be added to your profile on Scribd. If you want to change that picture, click on the 'Upload a new image' link on the 'Personal' tab in the Account settings. We want to add that any changes you make to the photo image on Scribd won't effect your Facebook profile.
You can also make a more personalized profile page by changing the 'Branding' settings.
You can edit the color and add a background image to the top of your public profile by clicking the 'Edit background' link. It'll give your profile that extra special touch since you can change the background color and promote a title that you've uploaded or liked on Scribd.
If you have any further questions about your public profile and how to edit how the world sees you on Scribd, feel free to contact Scribd support for help.
