Ever wonder how pages have a short, clean URL for their Facebook page? It’s simple! You can easily direct someone to your page by setting a username for it. You will not be able to edit or transfer this user name once you set it, so make sure it’s something you like and will like forever. It’s permanent, haha! Just head over to www.facebook.com/username, and you can get started.
Either choose a user name that Facebook suggests or create your own. For example, our Facebook Username for our business page is facebook.com/TheDailyGoodieBag. If our page didn’t have a user name, you would see a bunch of numbers in your address bar when you visited our Facebook Page.
Select “Check availability” to check for available user names. If the one you want is available, click “Confirm” in order to submit your choice. It’s as easy as that! Now you can have a username and a shortened Facebook URL, specific to your page or profile! Let us know if this was helpful! Feel free to share this with friends. 🙂
