Brand new Facebook pages can now get their vanity URL without waiting till they are at 25 fans!
Although the process seems kinda buggy, one of the MANY new changes the last week, as meant that you no longer have to fiddle around hunting for 25 fans before you can begin marketing.
This “free page username” seems intentionally limited to one page per account so will not help the spammer or name squatter that is setting up a dozen.
If you’ve had a page hanging around without enough fans to get your custom url, try it now.
There does appear to be some bugs and it MAY only work if the page is brand new or has done a first couple setup steps. Its unclear if there is a time cutoff or not.
Enjoy your fancy new URLs!
