WHY FACEBOOK IS NOT ACCEPTING MY UNIQUE USERNAME
In a previous post titled ‘How to create a username for your Facebook Page‘, we detailed the steps required for creating a Facebook Page Username. However, for those of you who have recently created a Facebook page by clicking on the ‘Create Page @Username’:
Then entered a unique username (Facebook confirmed that it can be used – green tick) like the one below and pressed the Create Username button:
But you end up receiving the message Username isn’t Available – This Page isn’t eligible to have a username like below
What this basically means is that you do not have enough Facebook Page Likes to be able to create the username. I don’t understand why Facebook couldn’t have mentioned that in the error message as it’s very misleading. Facebook has a requirement to have at least 25 Facebook Page likes before you can create a username. Wished that it was clear so people don’t have to search around for the answer.
