Strike a Pose: Add a Photo to Your Hotpot Profile

Ah, the profile picture. Your online face to the world! Now that your Hotpot recommendations are showing up in your friends' searches, be sure to take a second and add a photo to your profile (on the desktop app, click your nickname at the top left and you'll get the prompt). No one wants to see that boring default gray silhouette next to a well-crafted review of your favorite new cafe — they want to see you!

Cool, but I'd prefer if it were using my Google Profile photo.

Thanks for the suggestion. Let me take that one back to the team to see how we can make it more seamless.

I have a couple other suggestions, but they are off-topic for this post as they are related to Google Buzz, Google Contacts, and Hotpot Friends. Is there a place where I might be able to submit these suggestions?

Also, have you considered creating an official Google Buzz account?
