The worse thing was the fans that were attached with your page were lost and you product or service was like just born, with no followers. Though all this was done by facebook so that there are no evil practices of selling facebook pages once the page have lots of fans, by transfering the ownership to others. But as the time passed, the feature seemed to be in very much demand, and finally facebook announced it last monday.
Steps: Now all you have to do is, follow the following steps and you can have your all the fans linked with your same page on a new address:
1. Log in to your facebook account
2. Go to the facebook.com/username
3. Select the page you want to changer the username for.
4. Type the new name you want for your page and you are done.
For example: Earlier my page url was http://facebook.com/howtodoarticles and now it is http://facebook.com/GeekUpd8
Careful: Once you have fixed a new url, the old url of your page will be a 404 error, thus you have to change the old url from all the places where you have mentioned it.
Simple and yet effective, around 3100 fans are there for my blogs that i have brought to a new domain recently. Thanks to facebook :)
