A Vanity URL? WTH?

When it comes to Facebook, you can go with the URL for your business Page (or Group) that Facebook assigns you, or you can go First Class and get a custom one also know as Vanity URL’s or “friendly URLS”

Your own vanity URL is a Facebook feature and allows you to choose a user­name that will give you a unique Website address for your Facebook profile.

This can be found at (http://www.facebook.com/username/) or under Edit Your Page then Resources. Your username must be at least five characters in length and only include alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), or a period or full stop (“.”). Add this URL to your email footer, Website, and busi­ness cards to let your clients know how to find and “friend” you on Facebook. Not only will your Facebook Business Page URL possible be shorter, your new-and-improved url will look a whole lot “purdier” that the former string of ugly numbers.

Choose your name carefully since it is very hard to change or correct once you’ve finalized it.
