Facebook requires you to have at least 25 fans to set up custom URL for your Facebook fan page. But now you no longer need 25 fans to get custom URL for your Facebook fan page. Before, you needed a tons of fans to create custom URL for your Facebook fan page, but later on it had dropped to lower and you just needed 25 fans to be able to get custom URL.

But now these requirements are gone. Now you can get custom URL as soon as you sign up for fan page, even at zero fans. you also have an option to change it once after you set it first time.
