1. They changed it over the summer – I got this from the Facebook website. Hope this helps!
    “I tried to secure a name for my Page but Facebook said the Page was not eligible. What are the requirements?
    All Pages created after May 31, 2009 or that had less than 1,000 fans on that day are eligible to claim usernames if they have more than 25 fans.”

  2. You can register your username on personal FB pages, but for Fan Pages you need to have 1,000 fans to get a custom URL. They had a short window (until sometime in May or June this year, IIRC) where, with 100 fans, you could get a custom Fan Page URL. That window slammed shut on my fingers as I built the fan page for “Cancer for Christmas” – working hard to get to 1K fans now!
