Facebook Vanity URLs

Posted By Darren Kelly On June 12, 2009 @ 10:54 am In Social Media | No Comments

Tonight at Midnight ET, Facebook users can grab a vanity URL [1] for themselves.

This is a great opportunity to go from a randomly-generated id string (who doesn’t want to be known as id=505900947) to your preferred online identity.

The big competition for www.facebook.com/darrenkelly [2] is myself , the former college basketball star [3], and an Irish footballer [4].

I just realized that the Irish guy will have to be up at 5am local time in order to try to grab his name. An from what I know of Irish footballers, I bet he’ll be at the pub late tonight and in no shape to log on in the morning. Ha ha!!!!

And also, I’ve reserved it already. I have friends in high social media places. Sorry boys.
