We developed the about.me Slack app to help teams and communities make team member introductions seamless, make it easier for team members to learn about each other, and help them create valuable connections Once the app is installed, team members can create or connect their pages with the /aboutme command.

Thanks Chris! This is one of my favorite use cases for externalizing links to my about.me page. Slack is the app many of use non stop to interact with our teams as well as distinct Slack communities, so seeing more context on people is really empowering.

Particularly useful for bigger organizations. Aside: We've talked about some version of this within the Product Hunt community. How can we make people feel welcome and properly "introduced" when joining for the first time. Very different context but this integration is a good example of how this could be done, at least within Slack.

This is a great way to bring About.me into the world of conversational software — great for casual interest groups using Slack, as well as growing teams! Love this use case, given how sparse the Slack user profile is.

About.me happens to also be one of the easiest ways to get a simple page profile that's all about you. This about.me integration into Slack is particularly useful for Slack communities, growing remote teams and also large companies. There's no better way to start getting to know people on your team especially when you don't have much face-to-face time.
