Hi,

Trademark is something different from a facebook username. Mark which is used for trade(commercial value) but if the username created by the individual is infringing your mark in anyway or creating confusion among the public and moreover the user is started using the username after you register your mark (usage) then certainly you can issue a notice asking the individual to stop using the mark.
