Thumbs down FaceBook UserNames Now Live

Too bad I didn't hit the early schedule and been beaten for my username!

Some German kid have used my username!

Quote:
Username selection is now live at http://www.facebook.com/username/. Remember, choosing a username is optional and will give you a distinct Web address for your profile. It will not change the name that appears on your profile, in search or elsewhere on the site.

From the beginning of Facebook, people have used their real names to share and connect with the people they know. This authenticity helps to create a trusted environment because you know the identity of the people and things on Facebook. The one place, though, where your identity wasn't reflected was in the Web address for your profile or the Facebook Pages you administer. The URL was just a randomly assigned number like "id=592952074." That soon will change.

We're planning to offer Facebook usernames to make it easier for people to find and connect with you. When your friends, family members or co-workers visit your profile or Pages on Facebook, they will be able to enter your username as part of the URL in their browser. This way people will have an easy-to-remember way to find you. We expect to offer even more ways to use your Facebook username in the future.

Your new Facebook URL is like your personal destination, or home, on the Web. People can enter a Facebook username as a search term on Facebook or a popular search engine like Google, for example, which will make it much easier for people to find friends with common names. Your username will have the same privacy setting as your profile name in Search, and you can always edit your search privacy settings here.

Good thing I got mine early
It's really good that facebook now has usernames for its members, I'm kinda bored seeing very long URLs of my friends' profiles.

Facebook has it's place in the whole Social Networking niche. It's not the "end-all",
but it's not bad either...

It is obviously optional.

I got could not get my name in my facebook vanity url because my name is really famous. I could however get myfullname in the facebook url. That is ok for me.
