Facebook's URL Marketing Scheme, An Update...

[Meet Travis Howard, the "King of the Universe"]

Were you one of the dorks that diligently sat glued to your laptop Friday night, anxiously awaiting for Facebook to open up their url naming system so that you could be the first one to score the title of "King of the Universe" or "yo mamma"?  Thankfully, our current president has made sure that the White House staff is up to date on their social media know-how. So far, both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are up for grabs, in case you're wondering.  Our advice: stick to your own name, because once you secure your url, there's no turning back. Whether this clever marketing ploy will  have any real effect on the world at all is doubtful.
