This is me not claiming my Facebook URL

Tuesday 16th June, 2009

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:

  • Vanity
  • 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
  • Obstinance

The nays have it.
