HackerNoon Profile Updates: The spotlight is on YOU!

Your HackerNoon profile page is your introduction to HackerNoon’s community of readers, writers, and the world at large, and we make sure that you’re the center of attention here. Thus, we have made important additions and improvements listed below:

1. Flaunt Your Best Online Self

With the new profile page, we want everyone to know who this person is, even looking from afar. Your name and HackerNoon handle are now available in the upper left corner in a bigger font, followed by your bio.


2. Take Pride in the Total Reading Time



The number of stories and the total read-time stats are now available in the upper right corner, next to your profile image. There have been minimal changes in this section.


This is the section that lets you stand out because, after your photo and name, this is the first thing people see that describes you and the work you do, so make sure it’s a true reflection.


Following this section, we have the social media div that shows all your social media accounts that you have added while creating your HackerNoon profile.

3. We’re Proud of Your Accomplishments

We are proud of your accomplishments as much as you are, and we wanted the world to know how amazing you are, so we have introduced a new badge section where we’ll curate all the badges you have earned on HackerNoon as a reader or writer.


All badges earned on HackerNoon



We want the world to appreciate all your awesome work, and just showing badges won’t be enough. So, anyone can know why you were awarded a particular badge by hovering over it.


Badge Description on Hover


Thus, these badges can be a very helpful tool in highlighting your achievements as well as in building a personal brand and adding credibility to it.

4. CTAs FTW!

CTA(Call to Action) buttons are a very important aspect of any social media profile page because this gives the reader a chance to know more about you or engage with you and your work. You can now add custom CTAs to your profile, and they’ll be visible, as shown in the image below.

You can update CTAs for your HackerNoon profile here.

Asking readers to subscribe to your content



We understand that a lot about you can’t be fully covered on just the profile page, so you can now also have a quick way to link to your About Page (as shown in the image below).


This is also where you can mention what opportunities you are looking for now or what your professional aspirations are down the road. This is the space where you write something that describes who you are. Make this pop!


You can make changes to your About Page here.

NFT Profile Pictures

If you like NFTs and your profile pictures, well, guess what, you’re really gonna love your NFT Profile Pictures!


Yes, you read it right. You just need to have your crypto wallet linked to your HackerNoon profile and then go to edit your profile and upload an avatar, and there you’ll see an option to generate an NFT Profile Picture. Thus, you can get a super cool and unique HEXAGON profile pic as an NFT, as shown in the image below.


Matic and ETH are both supported for getting your HackerNoon NFT Profile Picture.
