User Names for Facebook SEO

Social media is constantly changing — and Facebook seems to be leading the pack, with “new and improved” functionality to keep track of almost daily.  For instance, a writing colleague just pointed out that we can now choose a “user name” for our Facebook pages.  This seems like a smart way to increase SEO  for our overall Facebook presence.  Now, I’m no techie, so I’m going to take her word for it.

To get your own user name, go to http://www.facebook.com/username and just create your new name. The best (succinct) ones have already been snagged, but I just changed mine to http://www.facebook.com/NewYorkJournalist.  Give it a whirl.

And if you change yours, please leave a comment here…
