Facebook Launches Usernames Without A Hitch
At 12:01 Facebook opened the flood gates on their new usernames feature.
Personally, the process went very smoothly for me. I was able to secure my desired Facebook username with no trouble at all.
In 3 minutes, there were 200,000 usernames registered. In 15 minutes, over half a million, and it is rising.
Woah! Talk about a success.
I went digging through Search.Twitter to see if anyone was complaining of the site being down or slow… and I couldn’t find one negative tweet about the launch (except for users upset about not getting their desired username).
Most of the tweets about the launch were praising Facebook for dealing with a traffic rush of that magnitude.
So, was you able to get your desired username? Tell us.
