How do I view my profile as the public sees it?

When editing your Google+ profile through Google Apps for OSU, you may want to see your profile as the public sees it, to make sure you don't have any unwanted information publicly visible. Here's how you can do that.

In the upper left-hand corner of your profile, you will see a drop-down box that says Profile, followed by some text that says View profile as: Yourself. If you click on the arrow, you can then select Public. You can repeat this process in reverse to return to viewing your profile as yourself.
