When you start a business or simply have an idea for a new handle on social media sites, it’s painful looking on each site individually as to whether a handle is already taken. I know this from personal experience when I started this blog, once I setup the domain name, I individually setup my names and handles on Twitter, Facebook Page, Instagram, etc.
Having a tool to quickly identify if your suggested name is taken or not would have saved me a lot of time.
I recently came across a website that does provide such a function and determines in seconds if your handle is available or not for over 50 different places.
It’s called namechekr found at www.namechekr.com and you simply type in your handle, hit the search icon and it will generate you results within seconds.
If a tick in green shows on an icon, it suggests that name is available for that site.
If a red circle with a dash appears then that handle is most likely taken.
A caution sign in grey denotes further checking required on that site to see if the name is valid or available.
