    Scifi, that link is opening OK for me. What are you seeing when you click it?

    I'll quote a post below, from that thread, that will hopefully answer your question;

    There's a note on every Facebook Fan Pages regarding about adding a username on our fan pages. But there's a criteria to be considered before you are allowed to have a username.
    Here it is: Usernames for Facebook Pages

    There are also things to remember:

    • You can't change the username of <fan page> once you set it.
    • You can't transfer the ownership of a username to another party.
    • You can't violate anyone elses trademark rights.
    • If you are acquiring a username to sell it in the future (squatting), you will lose it.
    • Usernames may be reclaimed for other unauthorized usages.

    Thanks Fergal. I have located the Geki Dan's post but the link was not working that time...

    However it was working fine this time from your post..

    Unfortunately Facebook has restricted again changes made to name of FB pages with over 200 likes once again....

    It can not be changed now!!!

    yep, can't do it. it's to protect the users from liking one thing, say funny cat photos page

    and then switching it so say, Amazon Deals Page.

    make sense?

    That FaceBook page says "When 25 or more people are connected to your page, you can select a username for your Facebook Page". Why do you feel you need 200 likes? Is that page on FaceBook out of date?

    Actually there is a legal issue with my friend here and he want to change it for legal reasons....
    Creating new page with different name will make him loose his 12000 fans..

    Sorry Scifi, I think I may have misunderstood your original question. Has your friend already given a name to his FaceBook change and is now in a position where he has to change the name? FaceBook do say;
    Think carefully about the username you choose for your Page as once it has been selected, you will not be able to change or transfer it.

    If your friend is coming under legal pressure from someone who believes their trademark is being infringed, perhaps he can communicate with them and work something out that would allow him to keep the page as it is. Perhaps he could make one of their staff an Admin of the page, for example.

    Yes, he has created this page long ago and slowly his page has now 12000 Fans...

    Legal Pressure is not the big deal as it would be dealt in the court /........I don't know if that would work because if it is been reported to Facebook, they will simply delete the page and there is risk of loosing 12000 Fan base which will again take lot of time to build...
