Making Use of Your Media (Photos, Cliparts, Document & bPages)
Organizing your media
My AccountUnder Settings of My Account (shown below), you will find functions to edit your personal profile at Bookemon, your privacy, your account settings and in the case you are selling your book for profit, view the various reports related to sales activities of your book on our site.
You can set your profile to be “private”, “public” or “friends only” depending on whom you like to show your profile information. To change your Privacy Settings:
- Click myHome on the top menu bar after you have logged in
- Click "Settings" on the left
- Find My Privacy Setting on the page, click "update privacy"
- To make your profile Private, click on the drop down arrow under "Show your profile to" and select "private"
During the process to create your book, you will be given options to set its privacy which determines who can read your book. The three options are “everyone”, “friends only”, and “private”. If you choose “private”, no one else but you, as the author, can read your book. A private book will also prevent search engine such as Google from finding your book on the internet. Below are the different ways for you to change book privacy settings:
- While in the process to create a new book, you will find "privacy settings …" right under the section “Product Information”.
- On the book profile page, look for "revise privacy and info" under the section "Manage" on the right side
- Inside the book builder, click “Book Tools” and locate the icon "Privacy" to change the settings.
Permit Others to Comment on Your Book
For books with book privacy set for "everyone", the author at his/her discretion can enable/disable book comments to their books. You will find the "Permit book comments?" option under the Book Privacy setting.
edCenter Privacy Settings
An edCenter founder has control over privacy settings of his/her edCenter. To set/change privacy for your edCenter, enter your edCenter, click on the “Set up edCenter Privacy Settings” command located on the right panel of the page and you will find the following options:
- Who can access your edCenter
- Who can join your edCenter
- Master setting to permit book comments within the edCenter.
You may change your password at any time here. Similarly, you will be able to update and change your email address, information on your personal profile page, your shipping and billing address and payment method under Account Settings.
To update your Profile page, use "edit" to enter new information about yourself.
Cancel AccountIf for whatever reason, Bookemon is not the right fit for you, you can use the "Cancel Account" function under Account Settings to remove your account from our site.
