Why do people refer to themselves in the third person in their Hubpages bios?


I've noticed quite a lot of people refer to themselves in the third person in their Hubpages bio and I was wondering why? Is there some guideline somewhere that says we should, or does it seem more professional? For me personally (don't hate me if your bio is in the third person!) it seems a little bit strange. It's quite obvious that we're talking about ourselves there, it's a little like a 'meet the author' section, and I'm sure that most people don't refer to themselves in the third person usually...

    Thanks for your answer! It does make a lot of sense if Hupages all used to be combined. Thanks for clearing that up!

    Thanks for your comment! I understand that it might seem more professional but... it seems strange to me, introducing yourself as if your weren't yourself, it's a little odd haha!

    Thanks for your answer! I find it really awkward too, I even find it awkward talking about people who have the same name as me 'Rebecca did this... not me, obviously, I'm not insane' haha
