Back to Basics for your business page
After reaching 25 fans, please secure your username right away. Securing your username gives your page a much more polished look, especially if you are using them in your online and offline marketing.

But the good thing is you can change your business page name anytime.
Tip: If it seems that you had created a very long username here is a tip instead of putting http://www.facebook.com/REtoolz you can do http://www.FB.com/REtoolz. Facebook has been abbreviated to FB in this example. It will still bringing you to the same business page but saving you some time and valued space when using it on any marketing campaign you have such as your email signature or business cards.

Apps for real estate that were easy to install
Facebook has made it easy for anyone to create a tab for their pages. I found that Roost, The Realtor app and Contact Me were very easy to install. Roost will ask you to create an account with them. They have free offers by the way and, of course, the Realtor app will request your member ID. By the way do not forget to connect your Facbook busines page to your Twitter account , if you ever have one. It will simultenaeously feed your Twitter account on whatever you post from your Facebook business page account. It will somehow save you time from going to one social platform to another. Just click > Edit page and go to Resources and you will see a Twitter Icon there that state ” Link your page to Twitter”.
