Facebook Username Debacle

If you’re protective of your username and use Facebook, listen up.

The Facebook blog has spoken.

Starting at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Saturday, June 13, you’ll be able to choose a username on a first-come, first-serve basis for your profile and the Facebook Pages that you administer by visiting www.facebook.com/username/. You’ll also see a notice on your home page with instructions for obtaining your username at that time.

On your mark, get set, go!

(Hat tip to Anil)

In other news, as of today all over-the-air broadcast television will be digital.

  1. Thanks for the info!

    I got my name as the username.

    You don’t need 1,000 Fans to get your own username.

    Your Facebook account must be registered before June 9 as the only criteria.

  2. I heard about the 1,000 fans requirement too. I believe that’s just for Facebook Pages (for groups).
