Facebook continues to scoop up domain names, this time acquiring the URL for wwwFacebook.com in order to ensure that users who inadvertently leave out the period after www still arrive at the social network.
According to Fusible, it is not known whether Facebook paid the domain’s previous owner, but wwwFacebook.com had expired in late May and was listed on the SnapNames marketplace.
Fusible reported that an estimate from Compete said the domain name received more than 250,000 unique visitors in April.
The URL was not resolving to a website at the time of this post.
Readers: Have you ever erred in typing in the URL of a website and found yourself at a completely different online destination?
