I found this GREAT article by Mari Smith. I had to share this with you.
You see on Friday evening at 9:01 PM Pacific time you’ll be able to choose your own facebook username instead of having a number. This also means that you will be able to have your own facebook vanity url like:
If you have fan pages with at least 1000 members you can also secure a vanity url for your fan page.
Now is your chance to protect your online identity. If you have a nickname you use a lot on the web now is your chance to protect it. That way people who go to facebook looking for you can easily find you. It also makes it easier to remember your links to put links to your profile on your other web sites.
Mari Smith goes into complete details on how this process will work. She explains the rules, what types of usernames are allowed, and how to go about registering your username.
Thanks Mari for the great info!
