With facebook Username, you can personalize your Facebook URL (web address) by selecting a unique username. It will appear in the location bar of your browser after “http://www.facebook.com/” when you view your profile.
With this concept, you will get a link similar to http://www.facebook.com/jidetheblogger and this will now make it easier for you to share your profile with your loved ones and even print it on business cards, flyers etc.
To get started, go to http://www.facebook.com/username
You can select a username that Facebook suggests or create your own. Select “Check availability” to check for available usernames. If the desired username is available, click “Confirm” in order to confirm your choice.
You should make sure it is something you like and that it’s appropriate for friends, family, co-workers, and anyone else who might use it to find you. Users can only have one username for their personal profile.
Once you have claimed a username by clicking the “Confirm” button after checking for a username’s availability, it is not possible to edit it, or to transfer your username to a different account on Facebook.
Additionally, when an account is removed from the site, its username will not be made available. Facebook does this for security reasons.
Usernames are available only for Facebook profiles and Pages. It is not possible to claim a username for a group or event created with these Facebook applications.Immediately. After the username has been confirmed, you will be given the option to publish the new username into the stream to inform friends, family and co-workers.
I bet you will create yours asap before another someone else claims it. Feel free to share your claimed username with me using the comment form below so we can connect on facebook.
