    The TOS says no generic names.

    In short, that means "wind surfing" is not OK, but you can use "I love/like windsurfing" and so on...


    Anyway, they won't take you your page before a manual review which usually happens only after you get close to 10.000 fans.

    Also, is it safe to put a product name in your page name? As in 'I love product A'

    I'm not sure if this already breaches trade mark, I think it's fine. You should consult this with your lawyer if you want to be sure. Or, if you decide to risk or break any FB TOS in general, just make sure you harvest leads/emails on any way possible so your time and money won't be thrown away.
