So you've created your business Facebook Page and sent the link to all your friends and colleagues and asked them to "Like" it - right?  Good. :-)

Next you decide to add the Facebook address to your branding, along with your normal website URL. And suddenly you realise - instead of a nice, neat www.facebook.com/WebSolutionZau, you have something that looks like this:

             http://www.facebook.com/pages/<page-name>/<random-number>

So how you do get a nice, neat custom URL for your business Page?

Well, the quickest way is to visit this page to register what Facebook refers to as a username:

http://www.facebook.com/username

Select the Page you administer, type in the username you'd like your Page to have, and click on Check Availability. Once you find an appropriate name, register it. Done! :-)

Facebook provide a Help page here, with some answers to common questions.  I suggest you read it before you select your name.  Remember - you can only change your Page username ONCE and then it's yours forever, so choose carefully.

Don't have a Facebook Page yet?  Visit here to get started. Good luck! :-)

What Our Clients Say

  • Thank you Nicky, I am absolutely delighted with my new website! It has a clean fresh look and easy to navigate but most of all, it looks so different to my competitors and clearly depicts the image I wanted to portray.

    After working with Nicky in developing our Danzfit website, I had no hesitation in choosing her to build this business site. She seemed to know exactly what I was visualising and from the start, offered her professional and invaluable advice. What pleased me immensely was her clear instruction for a ‘non-techie’ and the fact that I was made to feel competent in being able to manage the ‘back–end’ and saving money in doing so.
