This is TERRIFIC NEWS and will undoubtedly help with SEO ranking, name recognition, and overall ease of use.  Instead of printing http://www.facebook.com/pages/Glamajama/46968453518 on your business cards to promote your social media presence on Facebook, you will now have the opportunity to use www.Facebook.com/Glamajama.  Much simpler!  This has been a popular request for Facebook connectors and I’m happy to see that the update is finally here.

The issue of name squatters has come up and Facebook is working hard to prevent any misuse.  To help businesses protect their trademarks, Facebook is allowing trademark holders to restrict use of their name by registering their requests here http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=username_rights .  If you don’t have your registration handy, just search http://www.uspto.gov for the number.

Make sure you mark your calendars and I’d love to connect with you on Facebook while you’re there!  Join me here Glamajama.
