Get Ready to Register: Usernames Coming to Facebook

June 10, 2009

Yesterday Facebook announced on their blog that it’ll soon allow users to register usernames and custom ULRs on it’s site.

On June 13th, people will be able to register, bringing Facebook in line with two of its biggest competitors, Twitter and MySpace, both of which offer vanity URLs for profiles. Currently, for someone to find a Facebook profile, they for example Google a name or search it on Facebook. With this change, one can just direct people to,  increasing and improving share-ability as well as adding a new level of personalisation and promotion to FB communications. We like!
