It's even easier to get a  Unique Facebook Page Name!
You now don't need a minimum of 25 Likes to claim your vanity URL!
Being an avid Social Media user, I recently found out that creating a Facebook Page and Name has gotten a lot easier.
We have recently published our UK Accountancy Jobs site and wanted to  make sure that we had an appropriate Career In Accounts Facebook Page
There are many reasons why you would want a Facebook Page, all of which I shan't go into here!
Step by step;

  • Log into Facebook as you normally would.
  • Go to this page on Create Facebook Page
  • Choose a relevant category and fill in the basics of your Page.
  • Click save.
  • Go to this page on Facebook Username
  • Choose your Username
  • Check Availability
  • And you're away!! :)
  • Remember to update your Facebook Page after this, filling in all relevant information and linking your other social media accounts.

I think there's still a minimum number of likes - being 25 or less, as I can't change name on few pages I have created and have just few likes....

However with one of my existing Pages, I was not allowed too.

Not sure the whys and wherefors :)
