All facebook users and fans might have dreamed for this kind of Url which is good for their brand or even branding themselves. It was not easy to recapitulate the old boring URL. Today as soon as I logged into my facebook account. Facebook surprised not only me but all its users with the following message. On Saturday morning, June 13, at 12:01am EDT, Facebook users will be asked to choose a username for their Facebook profile that will replace the current numeric URLs for profile pages.

Yes it means now you can have


According to Facebook, users will be able to choose a username on a “first-come, first-serve” basis for their profile and the Facebook Pages that they administer by visiting this page after midnight on Friday night. Users will also see a notice on their home page asking them to choose a username/URL

This is talked as significant news since not long back when Google released their profile pages. If you have a brand, then you might want to think about claiming a custom URL for your “fan page.” This will help you, just like your profile page, in the search results in Google.

Some catches:
Only pages with more than 1,000 fans before May 31 will be eligible to choose a username.
You can’t choose generic vanity URLs.
You can’t change or transfer usernames/URLs
You can prevent your trademarks from being registered as usernames.

So grab your URL, Good Luck!
