Are .me domains good?
For the domain .com I wanted to have, it was taken, I am going to change to .me instead. Are .me domains good? Did you use some? when should I use this extension?

They are good for domain hacks. Those things are situations where the domain and its extension make a witty phrase. For instance, shake.me is a domain hack. Anyway, .me might also be good because it appeals to the whole "me" idea. For instance, DesignerClothing.me appeals to this sort of narcissitic spirit, no offense to anyone, of many customers. Oh, by the way, Iv'e never gotten a .me domain, but it sound a little bit too selfish for my individual taste. However, though, it's all subjective.

I like them, then again, it's in the eye of the beholder.

Just keep in mind if you tell someone your domain name.... The majority of time they are NOT going to remember .me... They are going to type in .com.
So if you don't mind giving the .com free traffic, .me is fine...
Think about it...

New domains like .me are fine to use, especially if it's a personal website you're planning to make and you just want to go with the cheapest option. It also provides that "personal" feeling that you should seek with this type of website.
However, I'd highly discourage it if you're working on a business website. As mentioned, .com domains are the ones most customers are going to type in (or, if you're working on a local scale, your national domain will do, too), and well-settled extensions could prove to be easier to deal with for SEO.
If you're willing to change the name of the domain or if it's still in the works, though, there is one more option I'd take into consideration. Domains should not just contain valuable keywords to get on top of search engine ranks, but they should also be memorable. You want your visitors to remember your website's URL off the top of their head. The wave of new domain extensions gave webmasters a new way to express their creativity, and .me saw a rise in popularity just for that. Think of domains like join.me, for instance, or Del.icio.us, Last.fm, even Youtu.be. Combining the domain extension into the name itself is witty and fresh, and, on the long run, I expect these names to be remembered more easily. It might take some more time to think it out, but the trade-off will be worth it.

They are good if you know how to use them and make user attract to you. since they are very amazing I have some of them.

Anyway, myself, I don't get confused by domain extensions that much but I'm sort of a - domain extension freak - and I'm sure I'm not alone but definitely most web surfers are in the other group.

They are good if you can connect the domain name to it, like "Trust.me" or something.

The .me extension used for general purpose like startups business, college students, freelancers. However, some people have used .me as part of their phrase, but mostly used for personal websites.netcshop.com - Offers high quality web scripts for affordable prices.
