Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

You’ve had a eureka moment for a great product and want to secure the name on social media. Hold your horses when it comes to Facebook:

As a user you can set a username right away, but you’ve got to verify your profile via SMS, not simply email. Also pages can only be created with a valid account.

Check or change your current Facebook username / page name: https://www.facebook.com/username. Remember, you may only change it once.

Facebook encourages you to customise your Facebook web address, but throws in some hurdles: You first need to get 25 fans.

Unless of course you pay. As a business account you get to set your Facebook url straight away.

However, it seems after some time you’re allowed to choose your page username regardless of likes anyway. Patience pays off.

Once you got the FB url of your dreams, the restrictions are not over: You’re only allowed to change your page name when you have less than 200 fans.

Think carefully what title you give your Facebook page. Once it gains popularity you won’t be able to change it so easily: You need to provide proper documentation and there’s no skipping it either.
