I get the broken link message, but not from external links – I’m having this problem only with Facebook. For example, a username could be taken by a Page that isn’t published yet. I created a new Facebook page for a political organization and tried to friend my friends by clicking on their names. I don’t want to lose any of my followers but I need to change the URL to reflect my current business roles. facebook.com/xxxxxxxxx for the URL shortcut it will not let me and is saying its already taken. Check if you have at least 100 – 50 – 25 likes minimum needed for username to change. How can hide or remove my fb username url ? Facebook won’t let me change it since I already did long ago. For some reason when I click edit on the URL, it does not give me any option to change my URL name. I’m confused. Can you please advise what i can do?

I haven’t changed the URL before, so this is the first time. I setup the custom url for thr group om my profile page not the group page. Your new URL may take a while to appear as your username in Facebook Messenger. Great information, thanks! I just wanted to add, my first ‘Page’ has 1 like and the username option is there. Then “Contact and Basic Info.” That’s where you can edit the URL. Thank you. Printed materials? I am not aware of any. Like “Koli soda” or whatever you think most likely for your own customers. However, as a precaution in case the name change was not possible (and to prevent someone else taking it), I set up a separate ‘back-up’ facebook account with the new rebranded name. There is nothing about a username anywhere… I’ve even done a search for it. Now is it possible to create a new page having url facebook.com/abccompany. Hi Iana, Facebook seems to keep a tight lid on the one-change limit. I setup a web page for a group. Explain why. FB tells me I can’t have this name bc it is taken.
