How to Get a Custom Facebook URL

How to Get a Custom Facebook URL

As you probably noticed, by default Facebook pages are really long, nearly impossible to remember URLs. This is probably fine for the typical user. However, if you use Facebook as a selfpromotional tool for yourself or a social media marketing tool for your business, then you absolutely should think about taking advantage of a custom Facebook URL.

Facebook allows you to create custom URLs for your Facebook profile and business pages. Even if your Facebook page is already well established, there is no reason to worry about changing your Facebook address later because everyone who had bookmarked your old Facebook website address will now get forwarded to the new address whenever they click on your old Facebook link.
