1. What is a Know Me Profile?
Picture a screen sized poster about you - when you touch an item, it dives into more information about that particular item. That way, people can narrow in on aspects of you they want or need to know more about. (You can also create separate Profiles for specific viewers: employers, coaches, teachers, friends, etc.)
Profile's design was carefully developed with these objectives in mind: a.) efficiency for the busy viewer (A picture is worth a thousand words.), b.) visual appeal so it's fun to read, c.) ease of creation, d.) accessibility.
2. How can they be used?
To create a consistent, reliable "official" version of how you want to be presented.
To make sure that "official" version is used.
For efficient filing and retrieval of documents, reducing administrative burden.
To make your records portable.
To represent yourself by handing doctors, coaches, neighbors, etc. a Know Me profile.
To allow more people to really know who you are.
As a collaborative tool to get input from others.
