Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I go to http://www.facebook.com/username/, I select my page from the drop down list and enter my desired username.

The problem is that Facebook says the username I want to use is not available. I did try to check if it was in use by visiting facebook.com/myDesiredUsername buy I got an error message saying:

Sorry, this page isn't available

The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed

If I try any other suggested usernames they all are available. How can I get the username I want if it does't appear to be in use by anybody else?
