about.me online presence screenshot

Have you ever tried to express who you are and what you do, on a single web page? Do you already have a business website up and running, but you’d like another one that reveals other sides of your personality? And would you like your one page online presence to link to your main site, to show updates from your social profiles, and include a contact form?

about.me lets you do just that. You can create a one page online ID, with photos, bio, apps, and links, and you can start connecting with people on the about.me page straight away. And sure enough, you can also get in touch with anyone from your social networking circle and even outside of it with your short, personal URL, for instance, about.me/jamrelian. You even get a free about.me email address to promote your page, and business cards too, if you are heading into that direction.
