Get Ready to Register: Usernames Coming to Facebook
On June 13th, people will be able to register Facebook.com/YourName, 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 Facebook.com/YourName, increasing and improving sharability as well as adding a new level of personalization and promotion to FB communciations.
