About.me

About.me is a neat little site I stumbled across that allows you to create a custom splash/profile page. The site is in private beta at the moment but allows you to reserve a url.

Sites like these are great for personal branding, especially if you’re able to use your own registered domains to host/point to them. I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile and have come across a couple of similar services such as flavors.me and card.ly but about.me seems to be the best of the three.

I like the simplicity of these sites. Just add a photo, write a short bio, provide an email address and configure your social networks if you choose and you’re done.
