New web service FindMeOn.com attempts to solve a very Web 2.0 problem: the dozens of social networking profiles, email addresses, blogs and other web service memberships you and your friends can’t keep track of.
If you’ve got a Flickr, MySpace, and Tribe profile and a Vox, LiveJournal and WordPress blog, and Gmail, Yahoo! Mail and .mac email address, sign up with FindMeOn to “claim” and gather all your identities into one place, and find your friends’ and which services they’re in, too.
FindMeOn is a new way to assert and verify ownership over online elements , identities and personalities. We empower you to verifiably extend your true identity across social networks and blogs, essentially creating an ad-hoc social network out of everything you join.
The FindMeOn preview isn’t very easy to use, but it’s a step towards solving a problem all of us has and it employs open standards to do so, which is a promising start in our book.
