“Get Found” on Facebook

Remember a few weeks ago when Facebook allowed everyone to grab their own vanity url? Now they’ve just opened up the ability for you to choose a name for your pages, too.  You just need 100 fans to be eligible.  Just like you’d see in the domain grabbing world, the same thing is happening on Facebook.

Wow, someone created “Dennis NotYu” under our company name.  I’ll take that as a compliment!  At the same time, you can report folks who infringe on your brand or company name.

We were too late to get this for a client that did funeral planning.  Morbid that this girl’s personal profile name is “funerals”– I would have expected her to dress in all black.

So get your fan pages each up to 100 fans and start grabbing names– there are a ton still available.  Go to facebook.com/usernames.

  1. Keith,

    To get more fans, go to your page and on the top left there is a link for “suggest to friends”. Sometimes it’s hidden, so have to expand. There is no limit to how many you can suggest. I think Shoemoney told me he invited 500 or so in one go and it was fine– he sat there and literally clicked on each person to invite. Try it and let me know what happens.
