Visiting your Facebook account settings you’ll notice you are now able to change your username, but just the once. This is in contrast to Facebook’s original rule which meant you were stuck with your original choice for life.

I imagine the site has received thousands if not millions of requests to have usernames changed, especially after some pretty awful ones were chosen in the heat of the moment…something had to give.

There was however one great choice for Facebook username, undoubtedly the best one I’d seen…lets hope she’s not changing hers.
