Facebook has announced that tomorrow night tomorrow at midnight they will open up the vanity url’s.
If it looks anything like facebook ads lately that means the race will be on for facebook.com/acaiberry and facebook.com/iqtest
But seriously this is a opportunity you will not want to miss out on.
A couple months ago facebook offered me facebook.com/shoemoney for my fan page and its been awesome! I love being able to tell people just to goto facebook.com/shoemoney … so simple.
Don’t let your business/moniker get taken!
Also for those who have big plans to sell a vanity url Facebook will not allow changing or transferring of urls:
Think carefully about the username you choose. Once it’s been selected, you won’t be able to change or transfer it. If you signed up for a Facebook Page after May 31 or a user profile after today at 3 p.m. EDT, you may not be able to sign up for a username immediately because of steps we’ve taken to prevent abuse or “squatting” on names.
Of course that doesn’t mean you cant register a new account, squat, then sell the account? Maybe it does, but I expect there will be some issues.
To preempt those kinds of problems Facebook is asking people to email them if they have a trademarked or protected name
So anyway Tomorrow night at midnight EST the madness starts.
