Facebook: Easy Steps on How to Claim Username?

Yes, accidentally – I came across this URL from where we can claim an user name for Facebook account. (Later ย found that it is available in their Help section as well). Once obtained, we can use this username to log in to Facebook account, receive & send emails using USERNAME@FACEBOOK.COM

This is useful for everyone who failed to claim & get Facebook username when they made it available for limited time or couldn’t find it on new system which can be obtained if by clicking on Messages on left hand side navigation of Facebook account to set-up Inbox.
