Facebook users were allowed to have a username for their profile pages since yesterday. The swarming number of users who registered a username for themselves was really alarming.
Avid users desparately grabbed the desirable names for themselves and within three minutes around 2,00,000 names were registered. In fifteen minutes, over half a million usernames were already registered. Imagine the how sturdy the Facebook’s server would be. Within one hour, over a million usernames were already taken. Till now, there are already more than three million usernames registered on Facebook. Facebook says that the traffic during that time was many folds bigger than it used to be normally.
If you need a username of your choice like http://facebook.com/username, go get one for yourself fast.
