Being online is just not a cool symbol but now it has become a necessity. We can always use sites like Facebook, plus.google.com, LinkedIn and many others to live an online impression. But, nothing can beat what an online personal web page or better a website can do.
It was last month when I opted for my About.me personal web page. I got to know about this service via my friend, who applied for it and asked me to try it out. While today when I was checking my mails I got the invitation from them.
What is about.me?
About.me – a site which provides you a beautiful personal page for free, which is not only easy accessible but might give your online identity a total new look and depth. A page, all about you where people can access all about yourself and your online activities. Interestingly, you can select what to share with your visitors unlike other social services.
Look of this site is so cool and configurable. You can not only change its background image but you can also change the fonts and color of your text. This thing not only make one’s page differentiated but you may also rely on it to connect with you.
You can add sites and compile your online presence on it. Where you are offered to add some major social services along with your own personal page or blog address. You can also opt for a button where visitors would be able to Email you directly.
This service is now accepting your suggestions to improvise it bit by bit, as it lacks some features. You can raise your request on their user feedback page or vote already requested feature.
They also have an iPhone app, which I have not tried but the app looks cool and you can download it from official app store.

Hi Harsh, do I need a Premium account for accessing the Dashboard? I signed up but can’t find a Dashboard. Also when I click on “Account” in the strip on the left, I just get options for “Your Domain”, Email Address and Password, and the Domain option when clicked on just asks for my credit card details. I don’t see Upgrade anywhere. I don’t want my own domain but would like the analytics! Thanks.
Did you get an answer to this? I can’t seem to create an account without them asking me to upgrade.
Neat service, but nothing beats doing it yourself. I’m interested to see what dashboard.me is like.
Yeah truly a cool service. A simple personalized page for all. I bagged my custom http://about.me/sreejesh before any other sreejesh in the planet takes it 🙂 But I had to wait lil bit long to get an account though! Coz they provide account based on reservation.. i think it took me almost 3 months to get it.
Hey Prabal, we would like to hear your experience about this service..
I reserved 3 pages for my blogs. I will work on it when it launches its service.
They are sending the invites to number of users. Hope you get lucky for it..
Awesome service. Been using this from day 1 onwards. But my page is not worth sharing 😛
I already registered it a month b4 n i’m waiting for it to active.
I too recently created my page at about.me. Its an excellent service. Click on my name above to check out my about.me page.
Hey Namit, your page really looks good. You have pitched it up nicely for your audience. Great work.
It’s a good service started by non other than the renowned GigaOM founder Om Mallik. I am already there.
I like the concept, it can play as you online Activity card!
Not exactly buddy. It would be better to say it as your snapshot profolio. Sharing what you like to share with your audience just like fans. It is not too much personal. Simply hassle free.
This is pretty sweet! I need to put together an About Me page and have put it off forever, just opened it up gonna check it out now. Thank you.
John after trying Do come back and let us know your views about this service..
This is a Cool Service. This way all those who cant make a site of their can own can still have web identity – a personalized URL that contains their information.
Yah true…There are many other services like this but this one is bundled with tons of feature..!! You should try getting yours too for personal branding.
