Add a vanity url to your facebook page

  1. 1. Add a Vanity URL to Your Facebook Page Recently Facebook allowed its users to claim their own vanity URL for their personal Facebook profiles.. I claimed mine. If you don’t already know a vanity URL is a domain name of your choosing, that points to your Facebook profile. By default everyone’s Facebook profile URL is a long string of random characters, eg http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=123456789 A vanity URL for your Facebook profile would look something like, eg http://www.facebook.com/yourname Having your own Facebook vanity URL is a lot easier to remember when asking people to friend you, or when sending people a link to your profile.. it’s your little piece of Facebook real-estate. You have spent time a fair bit of time creating your profile, and claiming your own URL makes it that little bit better. Facebook Page For those who have a Facebook Page (in addition to their Facebook Profile), getting a vanity URL to promote their business, brand or product wasn’t as easy. Your Page had to have a minimum of 1000 fans. Once you reached this minimum amount of fans, you were then eligible to choose a vanity URL. http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 1
  2. 2. Facebook have now changed this minimum to 25 fans. So getting a vanity URL for your Facebook Page has just become a lot easier and I will show you how. For starters, you need your own Facebook Page (with at least 25 fans).. if you don’t have one, follow my guide on how to Create a Page for your Business on Facebook. Head to Facebook Username and then click on Set a username for your Page, Click on the drop-down menu and under Pages, select your Facebook Page, Now enter the username that you want for your Facebook Page, eg facebook.com/username, then click on <Check availability>, http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 2
  3. 3. If the username you have selected is available, and you definitely want it, click on <Confirm>, The username for your Facebook Page has just been set! Click on <Okay> to finish, http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 3

  5. 5. Just follow this same procedure if you want to do them same for your personal Facebook profile. Directing customers and fans of your business or product is now a lot easier.. simply tell them your Facebook Page URL! If you haven’t already done so you should also Add a Facebook Fan Button to your Website.
