It appears that Facebook has quietly launched a new option in the settings area called “username” where you have the option to change your Facebook username. To find this option, go to “Settings” at the top-right of the Facebook page and then click on “Account Settings.” The second option from the top is “Username.” Press “Change” to enter in your new username and then click “Confirm” when you’re ready to set it.
Now remember that this is a one time only proposition. Why this is the case is a bit of a mystery but one that we mere mortals may never know the answer to.
So, the good news is that you can change any of the mistakes that you made regarding your vanity URL. The other good news is that it looks like the big Tin Man of social media, Facebook, went out and got a heart.
Some of the more entertaining usernames have been created either by prankster friends or someone possibly falling asleep at the keyboard. Since there are 250 million Facebook users I gotta think that there are rather ‘inventive’ names. Have you run across any?
