    Where to begin?


    I set up a website, and next I need to build a social media presence.

    The problem was someone already had the name of my website as their facebook, twitter, blogspot or whatever.

    However, today I created a user name with the same name as my competitor, and I guess because it had be inactive for a long time, Facebook allowed me to use their user name as my own.

    Now, i'm not familiar with blogger, but if I can do the same thing that I did with Facebook with blogger, it would be outstanding.

    Because this person already ranks on Google.

    Am I lucky, or can lightning strike twice?

    OBTW, I'm a completely newbie.

    when a page doesn't have a manager you can simply claim the page. so im guessing this is what happened to you.

    Yup just lucky. Also I'm pretty sure the original owner/manager can come back at any time right?. Or am I wrong?
