Hi experts.  I setup a page for my small business on Facebook but never tried to do the facebook.com/business_name format.  Now a friend of mine would like to do it that way for his photography company.  I've tried searching on FB but no luck finding a solution.  Does anyone here know how to do this?  Thanks in advance.

How can I secure usernames for my Pages?
If you are an administrator of a Facebook Page, you will be able to choose your username at http://www.facebook.com/username just like a user selecting a username for their profile (timeline). There will be an interface for you to choose usernames for each of the eligible Pages you administer.

Thanks for the help.  I went ahead and tried it out on my account and I have 17 followers but it still let me use a username.  I used the link provided by Papertrip which is why I am giving him the majority of the points.  I appreciate the help and time both of you provided.  Thanks again!
