Grab You Facebook Fan Pages’ Vanity URLs Tonight

Tonight, Facebook will start allowing Facebook fan pages owners to get their preferred vanity URLs. If you will recall, Facebook started allowing Facebook users to grab their preferred vanity URLs for individual profiles and fan pages. But during that time, Facebook fan pages were only allowed to get vanity URLs if they have more than 1,000 fans before May 31, 2009.So, if you maintain a Facebook fan page with more than 100 fans you can wait until midnight to get your desired vanity URLs. Be sure to be quick though, as I’m pretty sure that there will be a land grab happening tonight as it was two weeks ago.

If your Facebook fan page has less than 100 fans, you may have to wait for some more time if Facebook will allow you to have those cool vanity URLs too. Of course, we all know that this restriction is being implemented to avoid squatting.

Just like what happened when this feature was rolled out to everyone, Facebook names would be on a first-come, first serve basis, names are not changeable and transferrable, and names must at least be 5 characters long.

The process of getting vanity URLs for your Facebook fan pages is similar to how you got your vanity URLs for your personal profile. Simply head over to http://facebook.com/username and you will be prompted whether you want to change your fan page name or not.

  1. I don’t think its fair that the keep on changing the rules. I need 100 fans. If anyone can add me, I will return the favor.

  2. I need to get a few more fans on our page soon so that I can get the vanity URL that we want. Thanks for letting us know that this is happening now.

  3. Anyone knows if vanity url for fan pages is active now everywhere ? Because of my fan page i can’t find any new settings, so maybe it’s not yet active for italy..!

  4. The requirement was 25 fans for the second round and they changed it to 100 fans the last minute! FB – quite unprofessional. If anyone add me, I will return the favor too. Thanks!

  5. They’re not “vanity” urls, they are personalized urls! Just because somebody wants a url with words instead of a bunch of random numbers does not make them vain! Please, let’s get rid os that insulting term “vanity url” and call it something that doesn’t judge you as vain for using a personalized url. “personalized url” There.

  6. I tried to add a vanity URL to my fan page, but it’s now not working. That is, I went to http://www.facebook.com/username and followed the steps. I believe that I then logged out and checked to see if it worked, and it did. Now when I type the URL into my browser it takes me to the login page. I went to settings and username, and sure enough, it’s the same username I’ve been putting after http://www.facebook.com. Has anyone else had this problem or have any ideas?? We have over 200 fans.
