It’s been a month and change since the mad scramble for Facebook vanity URLs this past June. And seemed like an awesome way to gimmick the system back then–here’s looking at you, www.facebook.com/epicfail–has surely left some users a bit unhappy with their spur-of-the-moment choice.
Although Facebook first said that the selection of a vanity URL was a permanent choice, the service has since pulled back its hard line a teeny-tiny bit. ReadWriteWeb is reporting that all of Facebook’s 222,000,000+ users now have the option to make one final change to their vanity URL, be it adding a few extra numbers to the end of your name or switching to a new handle entirely.
All you have to do to edit your vanity URL is log onto Facebook and click the “Settings” button in the upper-right corner. From there, click on the “change” button next to “Username.” Select the name that will now become your new vanity URL, click Check Availability, and cross your fingers!
