Sick of telling people to go to facebook, search for your name, then sorting through the hundreds of entries ? Then get yourself over to http://www.facebook.com/username/ and if your lucky, no one else has taken your name. If they have, then of course you do get the alternatives like email signups.
I very happy to have landed http://www.facebook.com/jasoncartwright but when trying to get /techAU for my page, I was met with a “techAU is not eligible for a username at this time. In the future, techAU will be able to set a username.”
I’m assuming that’s due to my fan page not yet having 1,000 fans.
