Facebook Vanity URLs Available to (almost) All Today

June 28, 2009

Today is the due date for Facebook to switch on Facebook vanity URLs for pages with less than 1,000 fans: in other words, almost all Facebook pages will be able to set up One restriction has been added, however: you now need to have more than 25 fans.

The Facebook help section reads:

Your Facebook Page must meet two requirements: it must have been live on Facebook prior to the May 31, 2009 cut-off date and have had a minimum 1,000 fans at that time.

This limitation is temporary. All Pages created after May 31, 2009 or that had less than 1,000 fans on that day will be eligible to claim usernames on Sunday, June 28, 2009 if they have more than 25 fans.

Tonight at 11.59pm EDT, Facebook also turns on Facebook usernames for those who joined Facebook after 3 p.m. (EDT) on June 9, 2009 – the time the feature was announced. It’s probable that smaller Facebook Pages will have the feature enabled at the same time.
