Get A Memorable Friendly Link
For Your Facebook Page/Profile!
By default, Facebook Pages and Profiles have URLs that look like they got in a fight with a can of alphabet soup (and lost!)
For example my main page:
Original URL: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kimberly-Castleberry/187709648701
Fortunately once a Page has 25 fans, it is eligible to get a custom “vanity” (short) URL
New URL: https://www.facebook.com/Ask.Kim
See how much more awesome that is?
I do suggest bookmarking the original as ever so rarely the redirection server hiccups right after a vanity URL is selected and the old link is the only way to get to the page.
Friend and colleague Lori Randall Stradtman, from Social Media Design, recently did a great little video on how to get your custom vanity URL and I wanted to share it with you!
There you have it, the quick and easy process to get the vanity url for your Facebook page or Profile.
It is also possible, once that is set up, to use an even shorter form of the Facebook URL, so be sure to check that out particularly if you use twitter!
Have you set up the Vanity URL for your Facebook page yet? If you have any questions I invite you to leave them below as well as share with us the custom/vanity URL of one of YOUR own Facebook pages!
Cya on Facebook!
