for all those who dont get it: on Facebook you can create a username so that people can be directed immediately to your homepage. this guy, Mike Pence, made a funny by created his username with his friends name, Obie Fernandez, so that if people look for Obie, they get Mike`s page, and Obie has to pick a username that is not his name.

He should pick Mike Pence to return the favour

i dont get why he`s so mad. his friend can always change it. facebook urls arent permenent like myspace ones "

Actually, they are. When you sign up for it, it specifically asks you to confirm, and says if you choose it you cannot change it ever.

So, this guy has Obie Fernandes` name for the rest of HIS facebook life.

To all you noobs who don`t understand the humor. Since facebook started you were given a web address to your profile but it was never anything easy to remember. Just a long alpha-numeric address so it was never easy to have people just go to your page on facebook. In the last few days, Facebook made it so that you could create an account name and attach it to your existing account so it could now be like www.facebook.com/YourName. so what people are doing is taking their friend`s names and stealing it so it could be attached to their own profile. So if your name was bob and your friend was steve, you would grab facebook.com/steve before he could get it. Hence, it`s like stealing someone`s online name for facebook. People did this years ago with MySpace too.

My mom is on Facebook. And she`s old. Like real old. It`s being taken over by bored retirees and stay-at-home moms.

I remember when you had to be in college to join Facebook. I guess it was a way to keep up with old high school buddies.

Facebook is way overrated.

I use it every once in a while, but I don`t have the time to creep all the people I know to see what their boring lives have given them. I check what`s new with me, messages from others and such.

Also, this douchebag doesn`t have the right to bitch, it`s just like bitching because someone already has your XBox Live Gamertag, because you thought "Johnny" was original.

Side note, I came up with my Batmanners name in grade 7 (1997) to avoid ever running into someone with the same name as me whenever I want to create something with a username requirement, be it game character or an e-mail account. And I don`t know why I thought Batman + Manners... I am pretty sure I opened a dictionary and picked two words...and I picked Manners and Hat.....so I warped the rules a bit...

Facebook has started people pick a username to make it easier for other people to find the person..... This mike person used somebody elses name.... guessing that the person is well known and not happy that the person took his name.... not allowing him to use his name like most people are doing....

The reason its a big deal is that once you choose a nick, you can`t give it away or choose another one. Its yours for the entire time you have a FB account. Sucks, but now you know why Obie`s pissed.

White Wolfos, yeah I meant individual users choosing brand names to sell later...

@ apermal

I heard famous names were allowed to change their urls a week or so before the feature was released to the public.

Or were you saying regular people took brand names? Sorry if I misunderstood...

facebook recently made it so that you can get your own url. so instead of facebook/bjka8dj48
you could just have www.facebook.com/kennyf

some people have decided to make their urls as their friend`s names so their friends get mad....
