    Facebook Usernames

    Well, the time is past. We can now get facebook usernames. Did anyone else jump in right when it opened?

    Re: Facebook Usernames

    Guess I need to log onto Facebook more often. Might as well check it out now.

    Just happened to be hanging out there when it opened. So, yes.

    Re: Facebook Usernames

    Maybe I'm missing something but what is the point?

    Re: Facebook Usernames

    My question as well--Why? What's the point? Is it really that hard to type in someone's name and search? Easier to remember someone's real name than someone's screenname, which is basically what this is doing.

    Re: Facebook Usernames

    I won't participate in this. I don't think I want people linking my real name with my persona on the internet.

    Re: Facebook Usernames

    I think it has pros and cons, but you can always choose a new username or a generic one.

    I can't even measure my indifference to this.

    What I heard is that the username you pick will be your username FOREVER. Part of the reason I'm not gonna do this.

    Yeah, that is true. I think a lot of people may just stick with the number. It really doesn't affect much either way.

    That's ok. I'm going to be a Cyclone fan FOREVER. But it would change my thought process if I was going to drop some gloss on myself like whore hound '88.
