About your profile
Your profile page tells people the story of your work through the repositories you're interested in, the contributions you've made, and the conversations you've had.
You can add personal information about yourself in your bio, like previous places you've worked, projects you've contributed to, or interests you have that other people may like to know about. For more information, see "Adding a bio to your profile."
People who visit your profile see a timeline of your contribution activity, like issues and pull requests you've opened, commits you've made, and pull requests you've reviewed. They can also see:
- Repositories you own or contribute to and get a feel for the type of work you're interested in. You can choose which repositories showcase your best work by pinning them to your profile. You can choose to display public contributions or to also include private, anonymized contributions. For more information, see "Viewing contributions on your profile page," "Pinning repositories to your profile," or "Publicizing or hiding your private contributions on your profile."
- Repositories you've starred. For more information, see "About stars"
- An overview of your activity in organizations, repositories, and teams you're most active in. For more information, see "Showing an overview of your activity on your profile."
- If you're using GitHub Pro. For more information, see "Personalizing your profile."
You can also set a status on your profile to provide information about your availability. For more information, see "Setting a status."
