I actually own others, as well.  But, I’ve decided to limit myself to those sites in terms of active use.  Obviously there are hundreds more in which you could potentially participate.  But, thanks to namechk you can now check the availability of your preferred  profile name on nearly 70 sites at once.   If you’re just getting started, it would be worth checking this site first for widespread availability of your preferred “vanity URL” before signing up.
