Coming Soon at Facebook

Coming Soon: Facebook Usernames

Coming Soon: Facebook Usernames
by Blaise DiPersia Today at 12:41am
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.

Why dont you use my existing name as my username ..this sounds dumb to say the least ..sometimes facebook developer walks in his sleep ..transferring his nightmares on to our web page of sorrow..

Lyricless Music of Life

listen to the lyricless
music of life
pain sorrow misery
moments of happiness
battered shattered in strife..
man does not like to see
others alive
in one hand a holy book
the other hand a knife
seeking a mistress
in another mans wife

to akbar simonese ..
