Beaten to the punch

Facebook’s vanity URLs have been launched. Some other Nathan Campbell beat me to the Nathan Campbell punch – so I, as in gmail, am nm.campbell.

It took me a few minutes to realise you had to go to www.facebook.com/username to sign up.

I’m a bit annoyed. I wanted Nathan.Campbell. Robyn didn’t even care, but got her preferred option just the same.

  1. Vanity urls? Haha. I hadn’t even thought of it that way. Just more useful for people to find your page faster. (Esp. for people with common names).

    Oh, and Leah de Jager wasn’t taken either. Too bad for the other two Leah de Jagers on FB…
