Creating a Vanity URL for your Facebook Page

We've got ours, What about you?

Facebook fan pages have become an integral part of marketing a website/blog or a product, Many corporates admit the fact that their Facebook Pages gets more visitors than their website/blog, in such a scenario having an easy, good looking URL is very essential to drive even more traffic to your Facebook fan page. In this post, I am going to guide you towards creating a vanity URL for your Facebook page. 

Before you sit down to create a vanity URL for your Facebook page, make sure that you have got at least 25 users like your page. If not, you won't be able to procure a vanity URL. Work on getting 25 people like your page instead (well, 24 actually, you like your page, don't you?)

Visit http://facebook.com/username and click on 'set a URL for your Facebook page', in the drop down box which shows up, select the appropriate page and choose a name. Remember, you cannot change the username/vanity URL once you have created it, so think long and make sure that you get yourself a good looking name.

Within seconds you will be able to flaunt an easy URL to your facebook page, just like us (http://facebook.com/pcgeekblog/)
