It’s that time again: Featured Friday #FFaboutme! As always, add your about.me profile link to your Twitter bio for a chance to be featured on our blog. Putting your about.me profile in your Twitter bio gives people an opportunity to get to know you beyond your Twitter page. jpeg-4Danny DeReuter definitely wins points from us for all the apps he has on his page and for such a great bio. Short and sweet.

Featured Friday: An Actor, Epidemiologist, Developer, and Social Media Marketer

It’s back! Every Friday at about.me we feature some of our fantastic users who have interacted with us on Twitter throughout the week using the hashtag, #FFaboutme. To be considered, we ask our followers to include their about.me page links in their Twitter bios.

What are the benefits of adding your about.me page to your Twitter bio? Your about.me page serves as a comprehensive way to tell your story on the web. Not only does it allow you to write a compelling biography about yourself, you can consider it a hub for all your other social platforms, blogs, playlists, and more. Here are some awesome people who have made excellent use of their pages:

Featured Friday: 7/11/2014

TGIF, folks. This week we’ve featured some pretty great stories on our blog. If you haven’t checked it out already, take a look at our Students of the Week from USC and our visit down under on our World Tour: Australia.

So, what exactly is #FFaboutme? We believe that using your about.me profile link on your social profiles will help people learn more about you. While you may want to snap and Instagram your sushi dinner last night, or tweet about the latest Orange is the New Black episode, these posts don’t cohesively give the web a visual representation of YOU. We ask our users to Tweet us weekly using #FFaboutme when they’ve added their about.me profile to their Twitter bios. We round up the spiffiest profiles, and feature them every Friday. So, without further adieu, here are this week’s #FFaboutme picks!
