How to Claim your Facebook Fan Page User Name

 

For Example:

This will change your fan page link from looking like this...
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bonaire-GA/Georgia-Angel-A-Southern-A...

 

To this...
http://www.facebook.com/GeorgiaAngel


Go to:  http://www.facebook.com/username/
{DO NOT change "username" to your user name, copy and paste the link just as it is}

 

You should see a link that says something like
"Set a username for your Pages"

 

 

 

 

I have 3 fan pages, so I had to select the page, then type in the user name I wanted.

Then click "Check Availability".

 

A message will display if the name is available or not.

 

For more information, here is the Facebook Help Center page on "Usernames: Facebook Pages"

http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=896#!/help.php?page=900

It states that "All Pages are eligible to claim usernames if they have more than 25 fans."

You only need 25 fans for this service.
Can you do the same thing if you have a FB group? I have the feeling the answer is no..... bummer!!
{bump}
Just found this and so happy I did.  Thank you!

When I click on your link to set username it offers me one for my personal page.  How do I let facebook know I need username for my fan page (nutrimommy name...)  Any help appreciated!

Thanks,

Anne

Hi Anne,
Did you copy and paste the link exactly as it says "http://www.facebook.com/username/" Don't change "username" to your username. Copy and paste the link exactly.
If you still have problems, you can email me directly at karen@ageorgiaangel.com and I will see if I can help you.

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me.  I did it exactly but it goes to my personal facebook page sign in.  My fan page seems to not have its own log-in.  I think what I am not doing is separating it as a separate entity but I do not know how...
