(Update: I was told FB treat facebook.com/aaronkoh and facebook.com/aaron.koh the same.

The gist of this post is to highlight whether having facebook.com/yourname is a good or bad thing especially now that is googable.)

Many of you might have jumped onto the Facebook vanity bandwagon this afternoon by booking your name at Facebook. I took facebook.com/socialpr instead.

Ok I was late. There was only facebook.com/aaron.koh left when I tried.

However, somebody at aaron.koh@gmail.com must be having missed emails because I keep getting it into my aaronkoh gmail account. There could be a possibility that same mixed up might happen. So I chose facebook.com/socialpr.

Hopefully, somebody who is looking for social pr can across this blog.

There are some concerns about having facebook.com/aaronkoh though.

I would say if your friends have to google search your name to find your Facebook page, I would question if they are really friends.

This means you are going to get total strangers googling their name to see if there are someone out there that has his/her name.

That’s one concern.

However, by having a facebook.com/socialpr, it shows how effective a social PR person I am by cornering the social PR search keywords in Google.

For some strange reasons, I couldn’t find facebook.com/aaronkoh.

    No, someone has not chosen facebook.com/aaronkoh yet. Still available. But it makes sense if you don't want it first in google, to choose something else.

    I tried aaronkoh, but I got aaron.koh as a suggestion.
