    Hi all,

    I know you don't need 25 likes to get your own facebook URL any more but dammit I still want those likes! :)

    Any chance you could drop by my page and give it a 'like'?

    Thanks! :D

    I had that problem with another page...

    Have you by chance already set the URL for another facebook page? If so, you just need to make a family member or friend an admin of your facebook page and then set the URL from their account. You can then remove them as admin if you like.

    I think facebook still have a measure in place to prevent the personal URLs being abused.

    Here's the site I found that gives you a run down on how to do it... http://dwaynekilbourne.com/2011/09/19/facebook-page-vanity-url-tip-no-need-for-25-likes-not-so-fast/

    hi, i just hit LIKE, and sent an email to helena to like you as well.

    so thats 2 more !

    I did the same thing for one of my businesses and its best to research your unique url before you start approaching FRIEND/FAMILY to like you as i later found out some canadian mob already had it BUGGER,

    well i dislike facebook anyway so i wasn't bothered.

    Not to derail or attack those asking for Likes in this thread but how do people feel about businesses requesting a Like before providing you with a coupon or special deal? Personally, it annoys me and it's enough for me to shop elsewhere given I don't use Facebook and I object to giving a tick of approval before I've even used the service.

    This isn't to say those in this thread are doing that (nothing wrong with mates giving a help hand) but it makes for an easy segway into that discussion.

    I don't like that tactic being used. There are many WP Plugins that i've seen lately that are "Like to access content". It annoys me and I usually shop elsewhere.

    I have set up a few for clients where there is a competition: Like us to enter the draw.. Once they like the page it opens up access to an entry form. Not something I've implemented for any of my sites though.

    The reason I have no problem asking for a like here is that my goal is to get to the magical 25, set the URL, then i'll say "Thanks, I have the 25" and those who want too can "Unlike" :).

    This clip of Abe Simpson pretty much sums up my reaction to that type of marketing (e.g. when they require a like to view their content/receive a coupon etc)...
