About.me

If you’re looking for a way to show people the various things that you do around the Internet, as well as provide them with some basic information about you, all in one place, perhaps you should try using a relatively new website, About.me.

About.me is a website that allows you to create a “splash page”, where you can post links to your various profiles and accounts on websites, as well as a personalized message, all in the same place.

About.me also enables you to view statistics about your profile, such as how many visitors have been to your page, where they came from, as well as what they do on your page.

When you first go to About.me, you will see the website’s homepage, where you can reserve your URL, which is in the format of About.me/yourusername. You will also see screenshots of the website, as well as a list of some of the users of the site. If you have already registered, you can also log into your account by clicking on the “Sign In” link on the top right of the page. On the bottom of the website, you will see links to the “About Us”, “Contact”, and other pages.

Once you have logged into your account, you will be taken to the About.me dashboard, where you can see a variety of things, such as your profile statistics, which include how many views and clicks your profile has received and how many links there are to your profile. You can also view “Historical Stats”, such as the average time spent on your profile, the total amount of views your profile has received, and the percentage of new visitors.

If you click on the “DataStack” button, which is located toward the top of the Dashboard, you will be able to see statistics about your activity on the profiles and websites that you have linked to from your About.me page.

Some of statistics include how many combined status updates you have posted, how many updates you have posted from some individual services, such as Twitter and FaceBook, as well as how many updates you post weekly. In addition, you can view a bar graph of how many status messages you have posted over time, as well as your “reach”, which includes information, such as your combined followers and friends, as well as how many mentions you have received.

From the “Promote” section of the website, you can learn a variety of ways to promote your About.me profile, with instructions on how to add a link to your profile to your e-mail signature, as well as the option to share a link on Twitter or FaceBook. You can also copy and paste an embed code to your website, in order to embed a link to your website.

If you would like to view or edit your profile, you can do so by simply clicking on the “Profile” button, which is located on the top of the page, next to the “Dashboard” button.

From there, you should be able to see what your profile currently looks like, as well as edit your profile, with the option to choose different backgrounds, colors, and fonts. You can also edit your biography, which users will see when they visit your profile page. In addition, you can add, edit, and remove services that you link to from your profile, including Twitter, FaceBook, WordPress, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Flickr, as well as others.

If you would like to learn more about or try using About.me, you do so by going to the About.me website. However, since the service is currently in beta, you can only reserve a URL and will be notified when you are able to create your own profile page.
