How much do you know About.Me ?

About.Me
Not sure if you all had heard about this one yet or not. This is my page http://about.me/owfotografik on this site.

This is a site that is like an “about me page” but it is a whole site. So I can have a bio and links to all of my social networks and sites.
I have seen people using this as their “about me” on their website or blog. Have a link to this site rather than coding an about me page.

As you can with many social styled sites, you can interact with other users. The really cool part about this site is that they encourage integration with all of your other Social Media sites and Websites. It is truly a comprehensive listing of you online. The social aspect makes it possible for you to connect with someone across all of their social sites on the internet. In some ways you could even use it as a “mini resume” page.

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.[2] 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

Twitter is a very interesting tool that connects us all in so many ways. We can have real time conversations in the blink of an eye with anyone around the world. We can converse on topics and find people with similar interests in a heartbeat. News has changed as a result and society is changing as well. Marketing is no different. What a great way to find people who are like minded and connect with them.

Social Media Networking Clubs

Here is an interesting idea I just read about today in the  Social Media Examiner.
They set up different discussions that you can interact with people about various social media subjects.

Finally, a place you can call home, help out others, make connections and get answers! Free now, free forever!”
