I was hoping to have the results of our " When Light Strikes " tasting panel ready for today's post but we're hosting the panel this afternoon so it's not quite ready yet.
Instead I thought I'd lead you through some of the features of Snooth that might fall through the cracks on the first glance. Let's log in and go over to the account settings page and see what we can do.
In the basic account settings, I can edit my basic info like my email address, password and site notifications. Nothing too crazy here, but on the right you'll see some links to additional pages which have some more interesting settings. Let's take a stroll over to the advanced account settings .
On this page, you'll flesh out your profile by adding your zip code / location, your first and last name (so that other users can find you), your website URL if you have one, and you can add some tags to describe yourself. If you have a Twitter account and want to use Snooth to Twitter your tasting notes, Snooth provides a quick way to link your accounts up.
(As a quick sneak peek, if you add your zip code Snooth will eventually be able to give you relevant wine events in your area and special deals and offers from local merchants!)
Next you can see your alerts and syndication preferences. If you don't want to publish your RSS feeds, or you want to hide your location on your public profile, you can do either by switching the corresponding checkbox. Also, any site emails that Snooth sends can be toggled on and off right from this page.
Finally, let's add a profile image .
Simply click "Browse Files", select your image, and let 'er rip! Although you might actually like that boot you're sporting, you're much more likely to have people view your profile if you have a real picture of yourself posted!

@philip -- The Cheat is not as cuddly as he seems! Beware!
@ocean -- Cool! Though I do like your "I can always make you smile" image I'm always happy to see more real people on Snooth.

Good info. Now I am excited to receive news about what is going on in my area, that will be a great addition to the site.
You have possibly inspired me to put up a picture of myself as well, I'll see if I can find one I can stand :)
