Facebook usernames will be available in basic text forms, and you can only choose a single username for your profile and for each of the Pages that you administer.

Facebook has been experimenting with this new feature for quite a while for some profiles like Mashable and having this feature adds a great sense of identity to your Facebook profile and much more like a homepage like Twitter. This is gonna be a first-come-first-serve basis so note this date on your calender, Plus, note that once your username has been selected, you won’t be able to change or transfer it.

  1. Thanks for the info!

    I got my name as the username.

    You don’t need 1,000 Fans to get your own username.

    Your Facebook account must be registered before June 9 as the only criteria.
