What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
The only way someone will know you're active is either by seeing you post, or looking at your profile at the seen X mins ago.
If you really wanted to, I don't think there are any restrictions on how often you can edit your profiles About Me section.
