You can "like" a Facebook page as a page you administer. For this you need to log-in your account - Then go to the page you'd like to "like" as a page - scroll down until you see the option to “Add to My Page’s Favorites” at the very bottom on the left hand side.

Getting the name is not enough for your apps. You'll end up at http://apps.facebook.com/<yourappname> You can get the alias (http://www.facebook.com/<yourapp>) only if enough people "like" it (I think the minimum is 25 people). Works the same way for FB pages, I think.

Turns out, if you have country restrictions on your permissions, it won't show up on the web, even in the countries you've allowed. x out all the countries that are listed and then save changes. Just worked for me!

A possible scenario is that the username was taken at one point and then the page was deleted / username changed of the page. This makes the username unavailable for an unspecified period of time.

Without the brand name and power that the big-hitters like Ford, CNN, NBA etc have, I imagine that you won't be able to create a Page username less than 5 characters. I would think that because these types of companies are so well known Facebook has given them special dispensation with regards to the rules and regulations on creating usernames for pages. ...

When you uncheck Always comment and post on your page as MyPage anything you post on the Page is visible only to some of your friends and people who are visiting the Page profile (i.e. it's not published to the News Feed of the Page's subscribers).

As I said in the comments I have read in some places that the username is held for a bit (a few weeks) before it's released. Now it's not to say it's not possible; Zuck had his personal profile merged with his page and got a permanent redirect on one, but it's whether Facebook is inclined to help every soul out there. So it is possible some lag time is ...

The "continue reading" is not placed there by the person. If the content of a post is too large, facebook will automatically minimize it, place the "continue reading" link at the end, and of course, link it to the whole posting. The link actually brings up the post not the page itself.

There are no guarantees: Facebook's current policy is that the page-creator and current administrators' are not shown to people - but they could change their rules at any time.

Facebook says: Unfortunately, we don't support email addresses with generic prefixes like info@, webmaster@, etc. Since email addresses of this nature are typically used for organizations and businesses, we don't allow them to be used for personal Facebook accounts.
