Are you sure you are using the correct 'user name'?

It isn't necessarily your login.

1. Log into your facebook page
2. At the top right, click on the gear icon and select 'account settings'

or create a badge:

To create a badge, I click on Profile Badges, then +Other and it gives a string. This string is input to the method below, but first the string has to be formatted so that the " are preceded with \ so that it compiles correctly. When running, an exception is thrown:
FATAL EXCEPTION: main
android content.ActivityNotFoundException: No Activity found to handle Intent {act=android.intent.action VIEW dat=<string here>

public void openWebURL( String inURL ) {
	Intent browse = new Intent( Intent.ACTION_VIEW , Uri.parse( inURL ) );
	startActivity( browse );
}

Open in new window
