Your ACS Network Profile is about to get better

Your ACS Network Profile is about to get better

I am so pleased to tell you, the users of the ACS Network, that we are making some significant upgrades to the ACS Network later this month.  I’ve mentioned it before in a previous post, but I can only reiterate that we have heard you and are making improvements to the Network.

So what does this mean for you?

Well, your profile is going to change.  We are migrating all the profile information into the system which also serves up the community functions (groups, discussion, documents, etc.) Currently, our profiles and connections are hosted on a different system from the community functionality and the two systems do not integrate well.

The new profile will allow you to do a few things better.

You will be able to have four images show up in your profile. You will also be able to create your own avatar (that small image that appears beside any content you create) that can be related or totally separate from your profile picture.

Your publications will now allow you to not only put the citations information, but also include a place for an abstract. In addition, you can indicate if you have any coauthors who are members of the Network. When you include these, the coauthor will have the opportunity to approve or ignore this connection and the publication will appear in their list as well.

Publications actually become social content and you will be able to tag it so that others may find if they are searching on a tag or group of tags.  Some spaces (groups or forums) may show recently added publications through a recent content widget.

Many of you have asked if you can download your publications from other sources. Although we haven’t tackled that, we do have another new feature which should allow you to post a CV to your profile.  More on this later.

So in the meantime, bear with us. We’re working hard to make sure your data migrates into this new functionality. If you were thinking of building out your profile, you might want to wait until later this month when we have released the upgrade.

I promise to write more about upcoming functionality….and I hope you are as excited as I am about the improvements we’re about to make.

And as always, if you have questions, post them below and I will try to answer them the best I can.

I am getinig each day some e-mail: log on, I click there I am geting a page where is: Welcome guest, Register, click the register, just register no possibility already a member log in, NO

NO log in!  How to use this web page when you can not log in???!!!

Second I am not able to change the  stupid password!!! Each time I I log in after at least of 30 minutes trying to find where,  I have to ask for the Password, and than I can not change it to my universal password.

So I am finished with this page, it is most unfriendly, I have no time nor will I tear my nerves. I am as many others on LinkedIn, and many others webpages of my interest.

I don't even see an easy way to add friends who I know are already ACS Network members. 


The Log In link appears in the yellow and blue header bar at the very top of the page.  Click on the link and you will be taken to the login screen.   After logging in, you will automatically be redirected back to the ACS Network page that you were viewing. 

You can also login to the Network by going to

Click on the Browse (drop down) link from the list of menu options that appear at the top of the screen.  Then select “People.”  This will take you to People screen, where you can browse all Network members.  You can enter the member name in the Search Box to see a list of members that match your search criteria.  You can fine tune your seach by filtering your search results by City, State, Country , Career Stage, Expertise, Local Section, Division and Tags.

Once you find your friend, click on their name or photo to see their profile.  From there you can click on the “Add as Friend” link (right hand side) to send your friend request.

I still don't know how to change the stupid PASSWORD, I can not every time ask for pasword.

I changed the password, well my profile and then on right was somthing like manage account, but I am tired of everything.
