I fear for about.me

I recently asked about.me for permission to use their logo in a LinkedIn group that was to be for about.me members. They never got back to me.

I recently built an about.me utility using AutoIT that relied on the about.me API. The documentation doesn’t match the functionality and other behaviour of the API. I wrote to about.me support and they said they were too busy, and the API was “as-is”.

If you notice I have used the “me” logo as the featured image for this blog.


The prerequisites to remove this use of the logo are:

  • Someone reads this blog at all
  • about.me are not “too busy” to care

I’ve worked in many IT organisation and my support experience with about.me leads me to the conclusion that the organisation is not coping. Which is a pity, because I like about.me.
