Internet is now saturated with social media websites and it’s really hard for people to let others know about their existence on all the social media networks. Hi I’m lets you consolidate all your social media identities and content from all of your networks on one page.
Hi.im creates a short-URL-style page that gives a quick glance to anyone visiting your page at your web activity. If you want to tell people about all your online identities, ask them to visit hi.im/yourname. Unlike Google Profiles, hi.im will update your page as soon as you post something new on any of the following currently supported social media websites:
When I signed up for Hi.im, I used Twitter instead of creating a new account. You can also use Facebook connect to sign up. Once you signup, provide Hi.im with your username for all the other social media websites and it will quickly add the public feeds to your page as well as a link to your profile.
[ad#left] I really like this one feature on Hi.im, its called highlights. Basically, you provide a title and a link to any website/blog of your choice. The purpose is to put your best work forward, excellent feature for designers with small to medium sized portfolio to showcase.
On Hi.im home page there is a popular tags column. Of course as the service is new, popular tags are blogger, design, facebook, twitter, developer etc. Add tags to your profile that reflects your interest so that others can find you too.
Hi.im is an excellent service that needs a lot more features to stand out from other similar websites that I see popping up in future. Currently what is working in their favor is the short URL which is easy to remember and seems like it is desired by everyone these days thanks to Twitter.
My Hi.im page.
P.S. Why the heck do they have Chuck Norris right at the top?
