Last night, as of midnight, Facebook activated a long desired feature... you can now have your own Facebook url.
For example, if you hurry, you can choose your own name, your new Facebook url will look something like this: www.facebook.com/john.smith
This is a much easier to work with than the original solution. But with 200 million users, if you don't act quickly your name will be gone.
It is very simple and took literally a couple of seconds to set-up. Simply login into Facebook, and you will see a yellow post at the top of the screen regarding the user name. Click on it and choose your username... That's It!
I would warn you to think through which user name makes the most sense for you. It cannot be changed. I didn't realize the implications on this for me... until it was too late.
Get you Facebook URL now at http://www.facebook.com/username/.
