Using social media with learners – about.me

about.me icon   about.me

I have been introduced to about.me which says that this site makes it easy for people to learn about you. I see about.me as an online business card of sorts. The other thing that I loved was the ability to add my personal account to my blog by use of an about.me widget already in the blog theme.

I have actually created two accounts with two different purposes. about.me also has the ability to easily search for other people or explore other peoples pages. There is a limited ability to edit your page, add a profile and background photo.

About.me my page

My above account can be found here.

The other cool thing that you can do with this as suggested by about.me is add the link to your page in your signature block in your emails. It also allows you to add some applications so people viewing your about,me page can also view your other social media sites.

If you would like to share your account please feel free to leave a comment with your link.

What ways do you think that this little site can be used with your learners? I think it would be great for resumes.
