All I want is a "fan page" or "company page" like the guys over at Tapbots have got here: http://www.facebook.com/tapbots

So I clicked on to the Create a Page for My Business Link at the bottom left of the Tapbots page. Then I registered my company there. But for some reason, even after confirmation of the email, I can't reach my company with a link like http://www.facebook.com/mycompanyname ...

any idea what's wrong? Is that some kind of special account that's hard to create?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Go to http://www.facebook.com/username/ and select a username for your page.

It has to be unique.

It should be as close to your legal company name as possible.

Once set, it cannot be changed.

Also your page must have over 25 Likes to be eligible for a username. – mark4o Dec 26 '10 at 14:14
