Last week Facebook started offering Vanity URLs and within 15 minutes over a half million facebookers had what they’d been hoping for since they left Myspace, their name in their URL. The best one was grabbed by Christine Shipley of San Francisco. Instead of grabbing her name she went with facebook.com/default.aspx. Yes, her name could easily be confused as the default landing page for Facebook. (Though, savvy users will know that the site is actually built in PHP, and not ASP, which the .aspx extension suggests).
It seemed not everyone grabbed their own name. Some opted to grab their friend’s names, end friendships. All for our viewing pleasure.
