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. – Attila O. Feb 9 '13 at 0:54
  • @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? – MrWhite Feb 9 '13 at 1:50
  • Same problem here... – plang Sep 20 '13 at 17:56

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!?
