*ALERT/WARNING*

Facebook Now Forcing USERNAMES on to its users!


As some people will know the number of people on facebook using a facebook username has dramatically increased over the last few months, Sadly it appears that facebook have made some changes regarding usernames. It was only a couple of years ago, that to register a userrame on facebook you had to:

ADD A MOBILE PHONE NUMBER TO YOUR ACCOUNT & THEN AGAIN VERIFY THAT MOBILE NUMBER AT THE TIME YOU SET UP YOUR USERNAME!

That is not now required!

YOU WERE ALSO ONLY ALLOWED TO CHOOSE A SINGLE USERNAME, YOU WERE ORIGINALLY NOT ALLOWED TO CHANGE THAT USER NAME!

**********

Copied from the Username Screen/page:
Note:

Your username can only be changed once and should include your real name.
Friends will be able to see your new email address on your timeline.


**********

Sadly though I can confirm that this is NO LONGER the case, as facebook allow people to change their usernames as and when they choose and seemingly as often as they want!

So OK People, it seems that faecesbook are NOT content with just forcing ALL of its users to have its wonderful and utterly brilliant "Timeline"...

Here is the latest assault on your freedom by good ole'd faecesbook as today, I have been informed by several friends that when they have logged in today, they have been greeted with the following text at the top of their NEW TIMELINE facebook page:

**********
How to Reach You on Facebook

Your address on Facebook is name.edited*

This is how people:

Get to your timeline — facebook.com/name.edited*
Send you email — name.edited@facebook.com*

Note: Friends will be able to see your new email address on your timeline.

Choose Different Address Learn More
**********


NOTE: The above is not a real facebook username, well not yet anyway!

So it appears that facebook are now only to happy to FORCE ALL OF ITS USERS to have a USERNAME/EMAIL, whether or not they actually fucking want one!

Still I suppose that explains why so many people have started using them, it appears they had NO FUCKING CHOICE!

The above also seems to be in some way linked to this latest push by facebook to switch users to timeline, as the above will appear once your timeline goes live, that is provided you have also not set up your own username/email!

So be warned!
