While playing around with my 11.10 install I found a section under the "MeMenu?" which was labeled "Online Accounts"

enter image description here

What is this feature and how does it work?

1 Answer 1


Online accounts is one of the latest features of GNOME 3.2.

The release notes of GNOME 3.2 states:

Online Accounts

Documents, contacts, calendars — They can be stored locally on the computer, but storing this type of information online is becoming increasingly popular. In GNOME 3.2, Online Accounts provides one place to manage these online sources. These online accounts are automatically used by Documents, Contacts, Empathy, Evolution as well as the calendar drop-down.
