One essential part of building a strong community is helping new members settle in quickly. This process is something we talk about a lot here at about.me, and we are always working to improve the new user experience.
As our Community Manager, I’m especially proud of how quickly people can get into the groove of browsing, complimenting, and making new connections. Given the broad range of people on about.me, it’s amazing how quickly new community members get started interacting on the site.
Here, With Purpose.
The geographic, professional, and cultural diversity on about.me is amazing. But what is truly astounding is that we are all on about.me with a similar purpose.
There are many uses for about.me and infinite ways to interact with the platform and with other people. Yet we all use about.me to achieve a few core goals:
- Present ourselves.
- Discover new people.
- Connect with people.
The simplicity sets about.me apart. There are literally millions of us on about.me from every country in the world. We swap compliments across continents. We learn about people living drastically different lives from ourselves and about people in the same situation living across the globe.
The about.me community is bound together by a common interest in sharing about ourselves, learning about others, and making meaningful connections. Present, Discover, Connect.
With this in mind I’d like to ask for a favor: have someone you know create a new about.me page. A classmate. Your mom. A co-worker or teammate. The more people we have in our community, the more we all have to explore. The more we can all learn about the world, and about the passions that connect us all.
I’d appreciate it a lot, feel free to let me know when they sign up (@jacobhartog) I’d love to thank you personally.
Be well and have a wonderful week.

Thanks for your service Jacob. This is really a great community!
Jacob, I am spreading the word far and wide. I love about.me and can’t sing its praises highly enough! It is so addicting for me–I’ve had to give myself an about.me timeout until I finish with my other work! So fun to meet people around the globe.
