What does it mean when there is a window with an arrow pointed at your user name in the profile that says "mm update" then a date?

Without a picture to see what you are describing I don't have a point of reference. I have never heard of such a thing. But since you figured it out, do you mind sharing?

When you hover your mouse over your name (or any user on BC), a window will open that has a small arrow pointing to your (or the other member's) name. You can see some details about other members such as when they joined BC, if they are online, how many posts, etc.  

 

The little green box next to the name is related to your Profile Feed and the box called "What's on your mind?" Yours has the letters "mm" even if you added them by mistake. 

 

You can see what other people have there and most members do have something in that box.  To remove it or change it, go to your profile and click Profile Feed, then remove or replace the text there.

 Look at "Stolen's" reply. It is correct.  I am sure I did not put it there although I am not suprised with all that goes on with my machines. I did change my password after discovering.

I can't even find "Profile Feed"  After I go into profile what do I click on next?

Go to the upper right corner of the web page. There is a pull down menu arrow next to your name.

Choose My profile in the pull down. On the left hand side under your Avatar picture it will have 4 tabs. Overview, Profile Feed, Topics and Posts.
