Facebook Users About to Get Vanity URLs

By  |  Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:20 am

With Facebook increasingly more popular these days, and more and more social networking users ditching their MySpace profiles for the service, its no surprise that Facebook is beginning to borrow some of its competitors conveniences. One of them is the vanity URL.

Simply put, it’s so much easier to give someone your MySpace URL. I jumped on that bandwagon real early, so mine is nice and short: http://www.myspace.com/edoz. However, on Facebook, there’s no way I’d remember this doozy: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1014145619.

Up until recently, you had to be a band or group in order to get one of those nifty vanity URLs on Facebook. Well, that policy appears ready to change. A few folks, including Demi Moore, Aston Kutcher, and now Digg’s Kevin Rose have their own vanity URLs on Facebook.

When will this happen? It’s not quite clear just yet. But with it beginning for those social media elites already, its only a matter of time before us commonfolk get the same opportunity.
