A Facebook Favor

Tonight at midnight Facebook will allow businesses with fan pages to reserve a branded URL, but I just learned you must have over 1,000 fans to do so. Currently the Duct Tape Marketing fan page on Facebook needs a few more to top 1,000. Just for fun won’t you join today and push us over the top? Thanks

Update: We did top the 1000 mark before midnight, but then I learned from Facebook that you had to do that by May 31st, Doh! – Anyway thanks to the folks that supported this in various SM outposts – very nice display of the power of social media.

  • Sorry John,
    but I think you are out of luck with this one.

    See: http://www.facebook.com/help.php?page=900

    “… May 31, 2009 cut-off date and have had a minimum 1,000 fans at that time.”

    At that time.

    I like your fb.example.com strategy. Have adopted it for myself.

    Already a fan by the way.

    Yours

  • I see you’ve just topped over to 1044 Fans! Congratulations John, I’ve always enjoyed reading your blog articles , keep it up!

  • Thanks for the info!

    I got my name as the username.

    You don’t need 1,000 Fans to get your own username.

  • Its nice that FB is allowing people and businesses to have a branded display URL. My friend @brian_hancock found an interesting thing about the possibility of duplicate content issues with FB urls. http://www.brian-hancock.com/facebook/facebook-vanity-urls-present-duplicate-content-issue/

  • Too many restrictions. Hopefully it all works out in the end for those of us looking for usernames. Thanks for the update.
