Facebook User Names

Category: Personal,WordPressChrisM @ 1:53 am

Thanks to MattG for the heads up on Facebook’s new policy… I’ve just grabbed http://www.facebook.com/chris.merriman before any of the other Chris Merrimans on Facebook noticed 🙂
If you want to secure yours, pop along to http://www.facebook.com/username and select your preferred format. Props to Richard McLaughlin for reporting that facebook are using a similar policy to GMail’s approach to user names – you can drop the full stop between your first and last name if you like, or even play around with extra ones – ie http://www.facebook.com/c.h.r.i.s.m.e.r.r.i.m.a.n is the same as http://www.facebook.com/chrismerriman which is the same as http://www.facebook.com/chris.merriman
Anyway, I’m going to run a quick test on a new version of WP Security Scan now, and probably head to bed, hope everyone is well.
