How many LIKES do I need to get a Facebook Username?

The current count is 25 to change your username.

– The term used to be called a Vanity URL in Facebook but has been simplified to Username– It used to be harder to find  to but has been added in your BASIC SETTINGS now

– You should claim your business name (username) ASAP, before someone else does – as names go fast and become unavailable

– Example: The process to get your Fan page web address looking more like this:

– You HAVE  to have a personal profile BEFORE claiming or creating a FAN PAGE
(yes this means 2 Facebook pages – YOUR PROFILE and YOUR FAN PAGE)
(Though you only need to sign up for one account)

– If you try and trick the system by using your profile as a FAN PAGE – you’ll eventually get your account canceled (by Facebook)
(Meaning –  Don’t name your personal profile something like SIMPLE INBOUND instead of your real name)
(It may take a year to happen but it will get canceled if you try to trick Facebook)

    I’ve been hearing a lot about buying Facebook likes in terms of its suitability as an investment, in regards to social promotion. From what I’ve found, it stimulates massive amounts of traffic at times and it helps to build rank for the target website.

    you need 25 fans to change your facebook page name but be awera of that when you reach 500 fans you can’t change the fan page name anymore!
