How to customize Facebook URLs

I am sure you would agree that the really long URLs that Facebook generates when you create a personal Facebook Profile or Page are confusing and can easily mistyped.

Did you know that once a Page has 25 fans you can change the URL?

Whilst logged into Facebook open the following URL.  http://www.facebook.com/username/

Your personal profile will be checked first.  If you do not have enough friends then you won’t be able to change your URL yet. 

There will also be an option to Set a username for your Pages

Once you select this option a new box will open allowing you to select the Page Name you want to modify.  If you don’t have enough Fans (25) then you will see a message explaining that this will be available.

Once complete you will have a URL you can share that resembles http://Facebook.com/MyBusiness

Have a great day.

If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” • Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

  3. Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get anything done… Regards…

  4. Recently, I did not give whole lot thought to commenting on weblog articles and have left feedback even less. Viewing your useful piece of writing, might inspire me to do this again.

  5. Hello Aussie Rebecca. Canadian Rebecca here. Your post about FB urls popped up on my radar just one day after I was trying to figure it out. How great. Thanks!
    I enjoy following the few other Rebecca Dolls out there through my google alerts. What a strange global world we live in.
    Have a great day!
