Create Your Story With Medium

At about.me, we look for new ways to help you create your story.

We believe your about.me page should celebrate you as your story grows. By adding SoundCloud to your page you allow people to discover your music and by creating a Backstory you share your personal and professional aspirations. Now you can showcase your writing through Medium.

Medium is a free platform that allows you to write and publish your stories. With Medium, you create amongst others who can help you by editing your work and writing comments. By adding a link to your Medium profile on your page, you give viewers direct access to your published works.

Mother’s Day Photo Celebration

This week, we celebrate our mothers.

In honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 10, we’re announcing a week long Mother’s Day Photo celebration. The celebration is simple: upload an image of you and your mother to your about.me page. Then, take a screenshot your page and share it with us on Twitter with the hashtag #aboutmemoms. We will share our favorites next Friday May 8, and feature pages on our blog.

Introducing: Intro for Android

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that our Intro app is now available for Android!

With over 80% of the market using Android, we’re excited to bring Intro to even more people across the globe.

Intro for Android gives you the same access to all of the Intro for iOS features, but optimized for the Android platform. Jordan Dodds, our Product Manager at about.me, adds that, “Instead of simply pushing out an identical app, we redesigned Intro for Android to optimize all the functionality of Android and Google’s material design.”
