How To Create A Custom URL For Your Facebook Page

0 Comment

If you have created a Facebook Page for your business, you want to make sure you set up a custom (vanity) URL for your page. The custom URL that you create has the potential to shorten the long-ended default URL such as “facebook.com/pages/business-name/123456780/….” that is auto-generated when you initially create your business page. For branding purposes, it is best to create a short URL that matches your business name and you’ll want to avoid lengthy URL’s if possible. The goal is to match the custom URL with your business identity to make it easily remembered and shared by your visitors.

Facebook refers to the custom URL as a “Username”. In order to create a custom URL for your page, you must first select one for your personal profile. To obtain a Facebook custom URL for your profile and/or business page, visit Facebook.com/Username.

Once you provide Facebook with your choice, the system will check to see if it has already been taken and/or provide you with available options.

NOTE: You should assure that the custom URL name you choose is spelled correctly because you will not be able to change it once it is confirmed.

After you have selected and confirmed your new custom Facebook URL, you can easily share the link with your prospects as well as use it in your online and print media, making it easier to be found.
