Facebook announced that it will be providing users with a customisable web ID instead of a random string of numbers and letters to make it easier for people to find you.

According to the company, while users were able to post their real names on their page, their identity was not reflected in the web address as the URL was just a randomly assigned number.

This time around, Facebook users can enter a username as part of the URL in their browser.

Starting this Saturday (June 13), one can choose a username on a first-come, first-serve basis for their profile and the pages that they administer by visiting www.facebook.com/username/.

Facebook usernames will be available in basic text forms, and you can only choose a single username and for each of the pages that you administer. The username must be at least five characters in length and only include alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), or a period or full stop (“.”).

Once a name has been chosen, a user won’t be able to change or transfer it.
