Rather than spending 5 minutes claiming my personal Facebook URL I’m going to spend 5 minutes writing a blog post. During that 5 minutes time, a statistically unlikely 165,000 people may have registered theirs.
Reasons in favour of registering a Facebook URL:
- Umm… vanity
Reasons against registering:
- 5 minutes of life wasted (dubious benefit since I spent them doing this)
- One step closer to Facebook being a closed monolithic identity provider
The nays have it.
