Giving about.me a crack…looks great, but what utility?
At this stage, as you can see, it is not much more than a pretty looking CV…kind of like an elongated, more attractive “Info” section that one might find on Facebook. The customisation is pretty nice (reminds me of Posterous in this regard), and behind the scenes it has a really attractive looking dashboard of stats…which I am guessing may become more effective once more traffic arrives…assuming it will!
For Joe Public who needs a way to point potential future employers to non-career-threatening social channels, this could be a really, really nice utility. Do send me links in the comment section to your own profiles. I’d be really keen to see what you make of it!
