    So I'm working on the social media presence for one of my projects and create a fb fanpage.

    I build up the 25 likes for what used to be requirment in order to change the page's URL (e.g, fb.com/brand) and it seems that they've updated their requirement to getting an SMS sent to a mobile device.

    I'm not sure how long they've been doing this for but my question is:


    How do I get around this?


    If there isn't (which of course there should be)

    If the page is going to be targeting a specific geo, would it need to be a phone number from the targeted country?


    Thanks in advance for all the inputs. View attachment 39448 .

    Regarding your question : Country of your mobile does not matter in my opinion.

    It was just a screenshot of the fb message requiring a SMS verification.

    Hey, send me a PM. I can give you free phone number to verify your account :)

    I don't think they need a targetted phone number from specific country.
    And if you already have old fan pages sometime they allow you to change fan page username as soon as you create it and sometime if an account is verified it can easily change the fan page username.

    What category is your page in?
    I recently changed the url of a local business page after 25 likes. Page has a US address, but the account from which the page was made is phone verified. If you are targeting only a specific country, set it to global, change page address and set it back to your specfications. See if that works..

    It's a community page. The account is completely fresh so that wouldn't work for it. Neither the profile account nor the fanpage account is verified.

    Change the page category to local business. Fill up random info from fakenamegenerator and try to change the url.

    Still asks for the verification.

    I see two possible reasons for this. Either the profile with which you made the page is marked as "fake" by facebook bots or you are trying to make a page that facebook thinks is not official like Celebrity Name etc.
    PM me with your required address. I will make the page and transfer it to your account.
    Cheers.
