One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive is "What is a Status Update" and "How Do I Update My Status." A Status Update is a way to tell other what your doing, what your working on, or where you are. For instance you might want to post a status update that says,"I'm working in the lab" ,"I'm getting ready for National Chemistry Week" or, "I'm on vacation and I won't be responding to posts until 10/1".
