Tony Conrad and Ryan Freitas started the site About.me as a way to aggregate people’s social-media content like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter into a single hub. Think of it as the personal and professional you all in one place online.

If you only get one chance to make a first impression, says Conrad, “We think it should be the whole you.”

Since launching the site, it has grown to more than 1 million users. The business was acquired in 2010 by AOL, which has enabled About.me to launch a mobile app. SmartPlanet visit its San Francisco offices to get a first look.
