The social media revolution that has been taking place online is great and all, but it has certainly complicated matters just as much as it’s simplified things. Communication with people all over the world is easier than ever before, but keeping track of all the conversations taking place on all of the services takes a lot of work. Reading this content is hard enough, but participating takes even more effort. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also forced to juggle a bucket full of user accounts that sometimes have different names and passwords. It’s almost enough to make you lose your mind. A service called namechk has come to the rescue to help us register usernames that are consistent.
We all have an online presence, and in terms of branding, it’s nice to have a single username that identifies you so that people know how to find you no matter where you are. With namechk, you can search for a username and see if it’s available on most of the popular social services out there today. If it’s not, then you might want to come up with a more unique name to identify yourself. This service can also be used to help you see where you don’t have accounts yet.
