Look at the right hand side of my blog page. See that black and white photo? That, my friend, is my About.me profile and my personal window to the world.
About.me is essentially an online business card that lives on the web. About.me offers registered users a simple platform from which to link multiple online identities, relevant external sites, and popular social networking websites. Basically it is a one page personal promotion tool and best of all it is free. Now… move your mouse right over top of my picture and click. Whoosh! You are now connected globally to millions and millions of people. It’s amazing who you will meet in just the first five minutes!
Now, don’t confuse this with being just another social media platform. In today’s highly interconnected world, you need to find new ways of being found – and then standing out! This new tool can help you do just that. Folks from across the globe and from all walks of life have found their way to the About.me community. I’ve spoken with a 20 year old student in Morocco and a 54 year old ex-NFL football player now living in Norway.
“About.me (Usually styled as about.me) is a personal web hosting service co-founded by Ryan Freitas, Tony Conrad and Tim Young in October 2009. The site offers registered users a simple platform from which to link multiple online identities, relevant external sites, and popular social networking websites such as Facebook, Flickr, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube. It is characterized by its one-page user profiles, each with a large, often-artistic background image and abbreviated biography.” – Wikipedia
