I'm creating a new Facebook page. On step #3 of the creation process it gives me the option to "choose a unique Facebook web address". But no matter what address I specify (that does not already exist), the [Set Address] button remains disabled?

enter image description here

Am I missing something? How do I specify a web address and move on??

  • It used to be that you could only do that once your page got 20 likes. Not sure if they changed that yet.

  • @AttilaO. Yes, this certainly used to be the case (and Business Pages required 50 likes if I recall). However, this restriction seemed to be removed some time ago - I have another page which I was able to suddenly set a web address after only a few likes. However, I wonder if the page type influences this? This is a "Company" page. But then why would it be part of the page creation process without any kind of explanation to the contrary?

As can be seen in the question, when presented with the option to create a "web address" at the time of page creation, I obviously had to hit the Skip button to continue.

However, a short while after creating the page I was able to specify a web address for it. The page had received no more than a couple of likes, so I have no idea what the trigger was!?
