Last night Facebook opened up ‘vanity’ names. That means that you can now have your name on Facebook like this:

Now, as you probably realize, many people have the same name on facebook. Just go look and you will be amazed how many of YOU there are out there.


So if you want your name, you should go get it now. And here’s how you do it:

  • Log into Facebook.
  • Then go to
  • Once you are there, it will show you the names you can pick from. And if you click on the ‘more’ link it will let you select a different name.
  • Select the name you want by checking the box or typing in your full name.
  • You are done!

(For example I picked ‘christinahills‘ as one word instead of ‘christina.hills‘ with the ‘.’ in the middle)

So if I were you, I’d take the 2 min now and go to this special page on Facebook

and pick the name you want for your vanity URL before someone else grabs your name.

(Note: if you friend me on Facebook, then put down you are one of my subscribers so I know who you are)

My friend Paul Colligan did a great video on getting a Google Profile and getting your Facebook name. See it below
