Verified now: About User 4.1 is working flawlessly on Ossn 5.3 free.
Please provide more details regarding your configuration - see https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/wiki/view/1101/how-to-report-a-bug-error

And please note that About User will be disabled automatically in case you're running the Custom User Fields component (see Changes above)

There are chances that About User 4.1 is not compatible with Ossn 5.3
I put a read mark on top for it now.
Needs some time to investigate...

Hi.. I am new to this but learn really quick.
I need to know what has to be done to get the "About" to show on the page.
I have the component installed and enabled but the About is not showing on the page, profile or in the admin section.
Any help would be appreciated.

Because you need to install Text Area Support component first and enable that one first.
