Your status message will appear next to your profile picture and lets others know how you're feeling or what you're up to. It could be anything from "I loved my yoga practice today" to "I'm on vacation!". Status messages are not obligatory but are there if you feel like sharing something with the community.
Just like it says in the prompt: "What would you like to share today?"
Status messages serve as a conversation starter, are a way of reaching out and making yourself seen by the community.
