Hopefully another helpful comment…be very careful when you do this as you can only change/correct a user name once (if you make a mistake).
A few people (myself and WA Dave for example) have done this and accidentally set the username for out own (personal) page rather than the fan page it isn’t particularly clear (step 4 in the above guide)
It is easy to do but just be careful and double check everything.
I just installed Static FBML and got it running. This may be old news to some of you, but you can code with the FBML to make something in the box visible ONLY to your fans… which means true fans only specials. They can’t see the offer number unless they become a fan, so I think this will be a great way to round up more people.
Thanks to all of you guys that are helping with Facebook… I’ve learned a ton over the past 48 hours.
I am a little FaceBook challenged, so this information is helpful!
Do I understand correctly, that a ‘business page’, or fan page must be a part of an individual’s personal page?
But that a vanity URL will lead only to the fan/business page? I’m trying to keep the two separate if I can
Even if you have an individual page and then set up a fan page you can not see the link between them. On a group page you see the creator/admin but not on a fan page. Each page has its own separate identity but a vanity URL is simply a more concise way of accessing a page than all the long code than you get as standard on facebook.
