I recently discovered a number of sites that provide you with a one stop hub to your social networking sites. They are basically free, 1 page Websites that point to your social networking profiles.
Think of them as “personal splash pages” or online business cards.
They aren’t LinkedIn by any means, but they do provide you with a simple online profile.
Here they are:
I’ve created pages on all three. About.Me was the easiest and best looking of the bunch. Flavors.Me provides a lot of customization but it was a little difficult figuring out how to navigate their little dashboard thingamajig. About.Me provided the most services (Social Networking Profiles) to add to your page. Zerply has fewer design options but provides greater background detail. Zerply is actually closer to LinkedIn than the other two services.
If you are in need of a very simple vanity Website but don’t want to lay out any cash, any of these services would work great.
If you want greater detail on the differences of these sites, check out this article on the features and benefits of About.Me and Flavor.Me.
Also, I found a few other sites that have a similar feel, I’ll check them out in a few days and report back!
