I know, I know… the title seems slightly confusing, doesn’t it? It’s because today I’d like to talk about about.me

about.me is a great website / tool / social network where you, as an individual, can create a simple website to introduce yourself to the world. I would actually describe it more like your own on-line, style-packed, full-screen business/personal card.

As a website, it’s very easy to use. Very dynamic, very intuitive, right to the point. You just need to sign up, choose your username -which will also be the name of your page-, choose a background, write a few lines and connect your page to other social networks you belong to, and BAM! You’re ready to go.

As a tool, I didn’t realize at first what its potential was. First of all, it’s a great tool to introduce oneself out to the world. Not only is it an on-line, ready-at-hand business card, but it’s also a fantastic way for people to get to know you. It’s a marvelous marketing idea if you want to offer your services or your own business. In a word: it’s just fantastic!

Here comes the fun of it! As a social network, you are in constant interaction with other people. You can browse other users’ pages, decide if you like them, if you want to compliment them in any way (e.g. saying you like their photos, saying they’re creative, suggesting that you’ve felt inspired by them…) There are many ways of interaction and soon you’ll find you’re flowing with the whole thing. People will quickly compliment you and your page, and this can translate to connecting also in different social networks and widening your contacts, probably around the world.

If you like social media, or technology, or any form of contact or interaction with other people, trust me, you’ll like about.me

So don’t miss it!

  1. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossip and web stuff and this is really frustrating. A good blog with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for making this web-site, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters? I Can not find it.

    1. Hi Amelia!
      Thanks so much for your good comment on the blog and this particular post. At the bottom of every single entrance, there are two checkboxes which you may check in order to receive an email every time there is a reply on the comment you’ve left, or every time I post something new. I’m sorry, the whole blog config is in Spanish, as I thought I would be writing more in Spanish than in English, but it hasn’t actually worked out that way! If you want to subscribe to my posts, you can check the option “Recibir un email con cada nuevo post.” at the bottom of each article.
      Kind regards!
