How To Set And Pick Up A Vanity URL

When you first set up a Page for yourself or business, Facebook gives you a url that looks something like this…..

Not very easy to remember, and  certainly not something you could tell your friends at a party to go and visit.

In order to set the Facebook vanity url for your fan page, there are several things which need to be in place first.

  • You need to be admin of the page in question
  • It seems you also may need a verified account
  • You need to know which name you want for that page. Because once you have set it, you can never change it.
  • Your Fan Page must have reached 25 likes

Now you can claim your own unique Facebook URL.
