The idea behind the partnership is to help About.me users demonstrate their online influence on their profiles.
It is also designed to give About.me users, of whom there are 750,000, better access to the data that helps to show just how engaged, influential and authoritative you are perceived to be online.
This is an interesting move by both companies. The Internet influence analysis conundrum we’re continuing to face won’t be answered by this, but, it’s a cool integration of a successful analysis tool and a neat profile service.
What I really like about this collaboration is that it shows how two young companies can work together to try and create a marriage of services that try to answer one industry challenge.
