MARKETING AND SALES STRATEGIES
Starting today (four hours ago as I write this), you can set your Facebook username.
Do it now!
Previously, Facebook URLs were a series of random numbers. Now you can have a username and provide friends an easy to remember URL. This is an important component of personal branding.
I set my Facebook username to be the same as my Twitter username. So now I just tell people to go to Facebook.com/dmscott and Twitter.com/dmscott
Here is the URL to get your username.
Here is more information from Facebook.
Stop reading this damn blog and get your username! Do it right now! Today!
If you don't do it, you'll end up with some AOL-like name like SmithJohn4562

Got mine /waynedavies
Same as my Twitter name.
many people have forgotten about this and they discovered it's too late and already having name like hotmail one xxx26 or yyy798- poor
Thank you so much for posting this! I was able to lock in my name to match my other accounts. I do hate being stuck with something different.
Thanks for the reminder -- got my name!
Done! Got mine as /ricardobueno. Won't be able to register my Page name until June 28th though. But that's ok, at least I have a subdomain pointing there...
Good advice, thanks! Otherwise, we'll just end up as a generic, low cal user. Maybe even with a dislocated UPC bar code on the side of the head.
i like to read your posts. thanks for this one.
I tried to set mine but they never send the code to my mobile. Is there any way of contacting facebook to ask what the problem is?
