Richly detailed member profiles make it easier to observe and monitor the places where community happens. The more data points, the easier it is to conduct segmentation and analysis, interact with community members, and create more engaging content and events.
But, building member profiles can be an arduous task—especially if you have to manually wrangle and add accounts to existing profiles. As community builders and facilitators, we believe your time should be spent connecting and creating value for your members, not conducting tedious administrative tasks.
Enter member profile enrichment. All of Orbit’s plans from Starter to Enterprise enable Twitter and GitHub enrichment. This means that a member's profile fields will be filled out automatically if the member has a connected GitHub or Twitter account. It also means we will link the Twitter account automatically if it's listed on the GitHub account.

All Orbit users can enrich their profiles. If you purchase our Growth, Premium, or Enterprise plans, you don’t need to lift a finger, all members are automatically enriched. If you belong to our free Starter plan, you need to manually enrich profiles individually. Here’s how:
