I just created a facebook fan page. Looking good so far . . . except my page’s URL shows a bunch of random numbers after my page name. NOT memorable:
A little research and I found out that after I get 25 “fans” I can request this:
So – If you have more than 25 fans and would like to ditch the giant unmemorable number at the end of your URL, go HERE:
You will be presented with TWO options:
VERY, VERY IMPORTANT: BE CAREFUL! IF YOU MIX UP YOUR PROFILE AND YOUR PAGE NAME IN THIS REQUEST, FACEBOOK WILL NOT HELP YOU FIX IT!! YOU COULD END UP WITH YOUR INTENDED PAGE NAME AS YOUR PROFILE NAME INSTEAD.
If you have a facebook PROFILE: The default is to request a vanity URL for a PROFILE, so go ahead and type in your requested name.
If you have a facebook PAGE: Select “Set a username for your Pages.” towards the bottom of the page. (click the image below to enlarge and see the link circled in red.)
Then you will see THIS option:
Click the drop down arrow, and your page should be displayed. Select it and then click “Check Availability” to confirm. If your page name is unique, you should get it! Good luck!
