This has been a nagging problem I’ve dealt with over the years for any business wanting to kick start their Facebook page AND change their FB url to a proper to username that doesnt look like this:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/SimpleInboundcom/229145510434227

First let’s get a few facts out of the way:

01- Facebook requires at least 25 LIKES before you are able to change  your name to a user name (vanity URL)

02- Getting started with people LIKING  you when you have very little followers is many times a HUGE ordeal (and takes time)
(thru traditional means)

03- To change set your username you need to click on EDIT in the left hand column right under ABOUT. Then under BASIC SETTINGS you’ll see a field for your USERNAME. This is where you set it (once you have 25 LIKES)

04- To clarify you are restting your fan page URL to something more professional like this:
http://www.facebook.com/SimpleInbound

SO NOW WHAT???

Luckily there is a service that is free and recognizes this need

http://twiends.com
(no, we are not affiliated)

HOW IT WORKS??

01- Signup for free

02- Its very easy to navigate and follow though you’ll want the FACEBOOK TAB for the purpose of this article

03- Make sure to click the SETTINGS button (on the green bar) to add your FAN PAGE
(if you don’t, this service won’t do anything for you)
(also your default of SEEDS is 2, I recommend setting it to 4 for quicker response)

04- Next set YOUR INTERESTS by clicking the MODIFY link next to it
(this is so you can target your LIKES at similar markets, in my case it was SEO

05- Now how this works is you have to LIKE pages that you choose to get more SEEDS. Your profile will show up as well offering others YOUR SEEDS to LIKE you back. In short your count goes up and down as you blaze thru this.

06- To Simplify
– Click the green TWIEND button (which LIKES others pages)
– Your SEED count will rise the more you do this
– The left list are FB sites that match your interests
– Watch your actual Facebook Fan Page as your number of LIKES increases
- Once you have at least 25 – you can set your username
– This will work in under an hour

TIP: You get more SEEDS by LIKING the profiles from OTHER INTERESTING PAGES
(Get 4 seeds…., etc)

Takeaway:
– Because of this “exchanging of LIKES” your fan page will get LIKED rather quickly.
– Once you reach 25 you can set your username
– This process took me less than hour to get LIKED and my fan page username reset
– After you have reached your goal, you might want to set your SEED level back down to 2 again so that your profile has more opportunities to get LIKED
– While this tool could be used for just LIKE whoring, I recommend LIKING fan pages that are relative to your market for a more effective audience

THIS ABSOLUTELY WORKS AND SOLVES THE ISSUE OF THE ARTICLE TITLE

    Please note to readers, This feature has been disabled on Twiends per June 17th, 2011. This is unfortunate, and we’ll be looking for a like alternative

  2. Looks like http://www.earnlikes1.com is smaller but working replacement – Though use Firefox as IE didnt work. It’s slow but still does a working job, they need more sites on there.
