Have the upgraded Facebook messages? Logging in to your account just got easier!

Facebook’s upgraded messaging system, combining e-mail, messages and texting and I guess everyone except a very few have upgraded their messages. One advantage that I didn’t know about this feature is explained below. Read on…

Logging in with your vanity URL

Do you have a vanity URL for your facebook profile – something like http://www.facebook.com/yourusername ?”
If you don’t have one, go get it here.

After you get a vanity URL, your e-mail address will be yourusername@facebook.com.

Now you can login with your vanity URL in lieu of your e-mail address.

Facebook has reduced one of our biggest pains (our laziness to type in the e-mail address). Do drop your views on your comments.

  • This is great but now the only thing Facebook really needs is a separate chat app that allows easy switching between conversation windows and doesn’t require you to be on the website too.

  • Looks like it will be a bit easier to log into facebook now, thanks for the report.
