FaceBook to use Usernames

When FaceBook was created their users, must have a real name and email address. When they logged into their page the address was a random series of numbers. FaceBook on Friday will allow user names to make it easier for people to find and connect with you. It is funny that this interesting concept only occurred to them at this point. When friends, family, or co-workers visit your profile, they will be able to enter your username as part of the URL in their browser. This new system will make it easier for people to find the person they are looking for. Therefore, everybody line up because with 200 million users there is going to be a long line to get the username you want. It is not clear how these will be given out and if you are business on FaceBook you can put your claim in first. We see the potential for profit here as people will try to squat on names and then sell them to the highest bidder much like the early days of dotcom registration. It will make thing easier as in Twitter when we want to know what Slash is up to, we just put twitter/slashhundson and just like that, we have instant progress on his upcoming release.

Sometimes I feel like
There’s nothing that’s stopping me
All things are possible
I am unstoppable
