Claiming a custom-branded “vanity” URL for your Facebook page.

If you have created a page for your business on Facebook you may find that the url looks something like:

facebook.com/pages/your-business/5778569871222

If you would prefer your page url to be an easy-to-find & easy-to-share link that looks more professional, like:

facebook.com/pages/your-business

All you need to do is go claim your page’s URL* …

Once logged into Facebook follow these simple steps:

  • Go to www.facebook.com/username
  • Select “Select a Username” for your page
  • This brings up a drop down menu, select the page you want to create the username for.
  • If your page has the needed 25 fans it will bring up a box .
  • Enter your desired username and click on “check availability”
  • If it’s available, you will be shown some final terms – if you are happy with your choice click “confirm” or select “cancel” to try another one.

*Note that your page needs to have received at least 25 ‘likes’ before you are able to claim your own unique Facebook URL.
