How To Set Your Facebook Username
Page Username, Custom URL and Vanity URL are all terms to describe the official custom link to your Facebook Page. An important tool for looking professional online and standardising your online brand portfolio, your Facebook URL also serves to help visitors find your Page quickly and easily.
You must have 25 fans to set a username for your Page.
To get started, follow these simple steps:
- Go to facebook.com/username.
- Below ‘Create your Facebook web address’, select your Page from the dropdown menu. See image below.
- Type a username and click Check Availability.
- If the username is available, click Confirm.
*NOTE: Once set, you may only change your username once, so be sure to check it thoroughly before confirming.
Username already taken? Keep trying alternatives until you reach a solution that works for your brand, as well as the rest of your online portfolio (Twitter handles, Instagram Usernames, etc).
Enjoy, and see you next time for #MarketingMinute!
