Hi guys
I’m trying to setup a facebook account, but I’m having trouble figuring out something. I’ve seen users that have a clean facebook URL , such as www.facebook.com/username. Any idea how I could do that? The best I can do is something like www.facebook.com/php?894769id-46576 bla bla bla.
Thanks,
50

50, you need 25 friend to like you page. When FB first started this you needed 1,000. Thankfully it is only 25 now.

post your long link here and you will be liked a lot more.

I would also suggest posting that link on your new file. That thing is going to sell the roof off this month. And that will most likely add up your ‘likes’ pretty quickly.

in the right top… Account > Account Settings, and there you have the option to change your name

don’t know if it’s called Account, I think so… in german its written “Konto”

How do I change my Page name? It’s not currently possible to edit the name of a Page. If you would… It’s not currently possible to edit the name of a Page. If you would like to change your Page name, you will need to delete your Page and recreate it. The Facebook team isn’t able to change Page names for you.

Bummer…
