To my mind, they all mean basically the same - just 3 different ways of saying it!

These differ in strength and formality.

”View about sth” is a weaker opinion statement than either ”view on sth” or ”view of sth”. Also, ”view about sth” is generally used in informal contexts.

”view of sth” has about the same strength as ”view on sth”, but ”view of sth” tends to be used in formal or highly formal contexts.
