About.me: On The Social Stage

Check out my about.me profile!

I love this idea – nice CMS and front end design, backed by a simple but robust dashboard. It’s like your face online. And it’s just nice to have a simple hub for your cloud-based identity. The folks at About.me got me into the beta nice n’ early and were helpful when I lost my login stuff.

I have to say, though, that when confronted with the need to populate the giant image area and luxurious profile box, I got some sort of social media stage fright. It’s just so… big. It’s like the social media Soul Train spotlight dance. I defaulted to my innate defense mechanism to make everything small, black and white, or evasively clever. So I’m not sure I’ve optimized my use here. This may be version 1.0, or even 0.1.
