Check Username Availability

Posted by on 17th Jul 2011 | 6 comments

Depending on what you currently use as your username across the social networks or online, it can be quite disappointing to sign up for a new social network than find your name is already taken. So what’s an easy way to search across all social networks for a username that isn’t already taken, without having to sign up for each of the individually? During my search for a solution I came across namechk.com, which was extremely simple and fast to use.

Simply place your desired username in the search box, then search. The results will rapidly span across all social networking sites listed and see if your name is available.

If you would like to visit one of the specific sites to register your username and create an account, simply click on the site name.

Be sure to leave a comment with any of your other favorite sources for checking username availability.

    Very great option to use it would be save time as well as shows which name you want to take it will be available in which all social media sites just in a few seconds.

    Wow. I sign up for and actively use a TON of these online services and often have to maintain several accounts for each service, and this is a REAL problem. For instance I’ll be using one easy-to-remember username across the board for a certain project, and I’ll even get the domain name for that phrase, as well as the tumblr, flickr, facebook shortcut URL, etc only to find that, say, twitter already has that one phrase taken. It’s very frustrating.
    This tool will be incredibly useful in planning media strategies across various social networks.

    Great tool – however we have come across at least one case where the name is apparently available but Facebook disagrees. We haven’t yet got to the bottom of it! Any ideas?
