Facebook User Names

You can create a URL-friendly user name for your Facebook page, but what about the pages you administer? Because I always seem to forget how to do it, here are the steps:

  1. Login to Facebook and go to www.facebook.com/username.
  2. Click on the link that says “Set a username for your Pages”, as shown below:

  3. You should see a list of pages that you administer. Select the one you want to name. As long as the page has 25 fans or more, you can try a name and check on its availability. Periods are used as separators in names, but it doesn’t matter if you enter them here or not. For example, the page names chase.brook.software, chase.brooksoftware, chasebrooksoftware are all equivalent – pick the format you prefer for your name. All three spellings will go to the same place.
