Question
I want to use a Username of a inactive page(inactive since 2011 and only have 6 likes till now) for my new page.Is there any way to claim it?

Answer
As far as I know, Facebook has yet to create a policy regarding dormant and/or inactive usernames. That said, they have previously asserted their right to reclaim usernames "at any time for any reason." (Source: https://facebook.com/help/219953041357184/) If you feel that the username in question is infringing on your intellectual property, I would contact Facebook directly via http://facebook.com/help/contact/360358877344441?rdrhc

Hope this helps!
