Since network of Facebook is now expanded to several other domains and chat messengers people can associate their screen names from those messengers with their Facebook accounts. For example if a Facebook account holder has Yahoo! account which he uses for Yahoo! Messenger he can associate his screen name from Yahoo! Messenger with Facebook account so that users can contact him if they want to locate the account holder. This feature also allows other users to uniquely identify a particular Facebook account holder even if the account holder has used a very common name for example John Smith.
