2. Then click on the ‘Avatars’ tab as displayed below.



3. After that you can choose:

Hi therussianstore,


What would you like your new username be?

How do I set a specific picture to be what is first seen when searched?  I would expect what I've assigned as my "profile" picture to be what is displayed when my page is the search result.  However, It looks like it's just whatever photo I most recently uploaded.  Can I set my profile picture (headshot) to be seen first when someone searches for me?
