The About page provides a great opportunity to introduce yourself to the Flickr community. Whenever you come across a pencil icon on this page, you can edit the respective section and personalize it to reflect your own unique identity.
To get to the About page on a desktop, hover over You | select About.
The description section is one of the first things fellow members will see when they visit your page. Here's where you can share a bit more about yourself (your profession, where you're from, what types of photography you enjoy) -- the sky's the limit!
Here, you can exhibit a curated collection of your top 25 favorite photos. Get started by selecting your desired images from Flickr's web browser interface on your laptop or desktop. Please note that only public items can be included in this showcase.
Feel free to personalize the title of this section, allowing you to tailor it to your preferences!
Biographical & Social Information
In addition to indicating the month and year you joined Flickr, you have the option to provide further details about how other Flickr members can connect with you.
This includes sharing contact information and social networking links such as your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram usernames or profiles.
Select information is automatically populated, such as your join date and email address, but you have the choice to add or omit additional details.
You also have full control over who can view your Current City or Email. By clicking on the icon next to those fields, you can adjust the privacy settings.

Tags, Favorites, and More
The About page also allows you to conveniently access and review information about your views, tags, geotags, favorites (faves), and the groups you are part of.
At the bottom of the page, a curated collection of your most popular photos is showcased.
You have the option to filter these photos based on the criteria of most faved, interesting, viewed, or commented. Additionally, you can customize the visibility of this selection, choosing to make it public for everyone to view or keeping it private depending on preference.
