I’m using “Facebook username as Illustration”. Do you know what to do next?
Note: That username you want to claim on Telegram, you must have at least you that username on two different social media. This is to ensure that the username is for you or your brand.
If you haven’t used it before on at least two social media, forget that username there’s no way to claim it back.
Let’s say you have the Facebook page or account with the Username @Facebook and also a Twitter account with @Facebook. Then, this will be easier for you to claim that your brand username on Telegram.
You just have to create a public post on that Facebook page/account, then public post on Twitter as well. Then you write your post like this on the two social media “This post is for Telegram. I want to get the username t.me/Facebook“.
Then, copy the link of the Facebook public post and the Twitter own as well. Send the link to the username bot.
If it’s not yours, just forget it.
Note: Please put it in mind that the ” Facebook” name in this post was just for illustrations. Replace your brand name with it, don’t make such mistakes.
