You will be able to get your name as the URL to your Facebook profile tonight at midnight EST
To match Google Friend Connect custom URLs Facebook will offer text URLs to your profile tonight at 12 midnight EST so get yours now (tonight).
Log into Facebook, go to this URL then watch the time count down. To get yours before someone else does, on the page there, as the time counts down keep pressing F5 on your keyboard, this will refresh the browser and get you in. The page may redirect on it’s own and it says it does. If it does not, then use the F5 refresh tactic if it times out and will not display.
The page will give you a time zone translation and display a count down script to your time. If you live on the west coast you won’t have to stay up so late, it will convert the time difference and you can gain access at 9:00 PM PST.
Believe me millions are going to be pounding away on this like crazy, expect network timeouts, server crashes and let’s hope Facebook’s servers can stand up to the load.
More on the Facebook blog here.
Get yours tonight or hate yourself later.
Tell your friends, tell your Dad, tell your Mom….
When you get your name, come back here and post it in the comments. I want to see how you all did and of course we can all make a few more friends this way too. – Cheers!
