Facebook Vanity Usernames now Available

At of 12:01 a.m., Saturday, June 13, 2009, Facebook released its latest feature – Vanity Usernames. Instead of using the standard username id (profile.php?id=1035661502) or


 URL, you can now create your own username and have a short link like:


I chose ‘WebExpert’, so, my new Facebook URL is: http://www.facebook.com/WebExpert

From a marketing perspective, I probably should have chosen my name or company name – and that would be my recommendation to my clients 🙂 I was too excited to be able to choose anything I wanted, and let my emotions make the decision.

Update your Facebook account today – and – choose your name or company name.
