It is a good idea to register your business name or your “handle” at social media sites. There are many sites like YouTube, Twitter, and Flickr that are essential, but how can you check for for your user names at all the different social sites that are out there? There is a new tool in town for this very thing…
This free tool lets you enter your desired user name once and then it will check that names availability at over 100 social media sites. It will tell you if your name has been taken yet at each platform. If it has not been taken, you can click straight through to the sign up form at that platform and claim your name.
There was an earlier tool that provided this same functionality but is now no longer available. That tool ran into some problems when a user entered a short user name. Since each platform has different rules about how short or how long they allow user names to be, the previous tool sometime said name were available which in actuality were not.
CheckUserNames.com has solved that problem, and has added more platforms to the mix.
Go here to check for your user name now.
Very impressive tool. Since it lists so many social sites, virtually everyone is likely to find a new or useful site for their niche.
