Any thoughts on what enhancements will come with user names or why user names are important to Facebook or to users (besides squatting on names that may be valuable to people or companies later)?

Facebook user names went live at 11:01 Central time last night. 200,000 names claimed in the first three minutes, 500,000 in the first fifteen minutes. Last count I saw is now up to 3 million.

Convenience. I use facebook all the time, but I couldn't put it on my business card until now. Now I can put it as a piece of contact info in a situation in which a hyperlink won't do. Also, it will make it easier for people to find me by searching my name in Google and other search engines. So it increases the possibility of connection.
