Ever thought of a brilliant username, used it for one of your social networking properties, only to find out someone beat you to it on virtually everything else?
Name consistency, particularly for brand promotion, is key to a complete social networking or bookmarking campaign. That’s why it’s important to check if your desired username (and therefore short URL) is available on a range of networks, before you even start to register it.
However, checking the availability of lots of potential usernames on a range of social networking or bookmarking sites could take forever. Fortunately, there’s Namechk.
Namechk is a username availability checker that quickly checks up to 159 different social network and bookmarking sites simultaneously to see if your chosen username is already taken. Each “taken” entry also links to their respective user page, so you can see what that person who has your desired username is up to, and if they’re not active, they may be willing to give it up.
From a UX perspective, we like how all critical content is maintained on the same page, using colour coding to avoid clutter and confusion.
