    Facebook doles out the vanity URLs

    Ciara O'Brien

    Ever wanted to be aname instead of a number on Facebook? Well from Saturday, you’ll be able to sign up for your very own personalised address.

    The bad news is it’s a first come, first served deal, which means you’ll have to be up pretty early in the morning (5am, to be precise) if you want to guarantee that no one else nabs your URL.

    Also, once you shoose that’s it. You’re stuck with it. So while that comedy URL may seem funny now, bear in mind that two years from now (if you’re still Facebook-active) you’ll still be saddled with that name.
