In 2010, AOL acquired the online identity platform about.me. Today, they announced they've been bought out:
Today, we're thrilled to announce that we'll be spinning about.me back out, returning to life as an independent company that is financially backed by our management team and a truly amazing group of investors who have backed companies such as WordPress and Google. Our team will remain the same for the most part, and we'll continue our roles as co-founders.
Our commitment is to make about.me the web's starting point for identity - we believe everyone will eventually have an about.me page they integrate into their email signature, add to their Twitter Bio or embed in one of their blogs.
