If you manage your company's Facebook account and you would like to have a user-friendly link to promote to potential online fans, you can create a vanity URL which will become your unique identifier.
Instead of http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/105641026136901?ref=ts you can promote your facebook business page as http://www.facebook.com/your-business-name.
Items needed are below.
You need to decide on the name you would like to use, because once set, you can never edit it. Think about something that will be suitable in the next 3-5 years, which will be easy to read and recall for your audience.
The following restrictions are in place:
If your trademarked name has already been taken, you can let Facebook know of this intellectual property infringement.
Did it work? Great! If you had any problems with the specifics of your account, consult the Facebook Help Center for detailed support.
Let us know how you went by sharing your experience below.
