The Death of Useful Sites that Make No Money

The recession will close sites with no revenue model. UserNameCheck.com was useful to find and adopt a moniker one could use across all the social media sites to identify yourself.

Without UserNameCheck, newbies to the social media will have a harder time figuring out a good name.
