This feels like a really dumb question. I have looked everywhere for 20 minutes for the answer but I can't find it....

How on earth do you set a profile photo. I clicked on the tab "Upload Profile Photo" and uploaded a photo. But it just sits now in my photo gallery and NOWHERE is there an option to set it as my profile photo. I've tried FAQs, I'v tried redoing it, I've tried uploading other photos, I've repeated the process three times now.....

Is it me or is this really not intuitive?

Your Profile > Upload Profile Photo

I think that's it!

I explained in the middle paragraph of my post how I had done that and why it did not seem to have worked.

But here's the answer for anyone else wondering about this.
When you upload a photo you can add tags. When you click Upload Profile Photo, the tag "me" gets added automatically to that particular photo. It is the "me" tag that identifies it as the profile photo tag. Although this doesn't work immediately, it seems that after logging out and in again, the profile photo does appear in the right place

You can also add the tag "me" to any of your photos and those tagged "me" will be rotated randomly as your Profile Photo. If you like variety, this is a nice option. If you want the same photo each time, only have "me" as a tag on the photo you want as your Profile Photo.

Thanks! That's really useful to know! :)
