Facebook gives you custom URLs for profiles


Starting 12:01AM EST on Saturday, June 13, Facebook will start offering personalized URL addresses for your personal profile. That means, instead of the usual ‘www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=563920841#=profile’ in your address bar, you could have custom links, like ‘www.facebook.com/thomas.shambler’. With over 200 million Facebook members, it’s going to be a mad scramble for user names (especially for you John Smiths out there), and URLs will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. Be sure to check Facebook this Saturday, when the changes go live.

UPDATE: We can’t find any links on Facebook, but you can grab a custom URL at http://www.facebook.com/username.  Good luck.
