Facebook Username round 2

Today (June 28 US time), round 2 of the Facebook username land rush begins. On one hand we have those users who were late to the game and signed up after June 9th, 2009 will now be able to create a username. There’s also those pages with less than 1,000 fans (and more than 25) will also be able to set usernames.

Of course this being round 2, those of you looking to secure a username today may be out of luck, with millions of names already taken.

There’s about 4 hours to go, so should be around 2pm AEST.

Update
Facebook have increased the minimum fans for page usernames to 100.

Update 2
Facebook usernames, round 2 has now gone live. I’m very happy to have secured http://facebook.com/techAU for the fan page.
