Huge Facebook Landgrab: Public Usernames

“Starting at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Saturday, June 13, you’ll be able to choose a username on a first-come, first-serve basis for your profile…” —Blaise DiPersia on the Facebook Blog

Just as there was a huge rush to get domains almost a decade ago, and an only slightly tamer rush to grab good Twitter usernames over the last few years; come this Friday night, expect to find every geek at his or her desk, preparing to grab their name on Facebook.

Once you choose your name, however, it is permanent. So choose wisely. (Not that it should be that hard…you should only really be grabbing your name…)
