Are you are new to facebook and wonder why some people have a short Facebook URL? It’s about one year now since Facebook sent out an alert giving everyone and businesses an opportunity to have a customized URL.
Some people stayed up late on the night of the launch just to secure their name; some missed out on that alert and still use the long URL, like I did for a while.
If you have not already acquired your business URL do so quickly, with the rapid growth on the population of facebook and also with local businesses embracing social media, there is a possibility the name of your choice is gone.
I was not quick to secure My Business URL and missed it. So I created www.facebook.com/TheBodFans, If you have lost your name , you can play around by adding figures at the end of your name.
So why do you need to change your URL- The Long URL is not Personalized, not Searchable, and difficult to Remember/Share.
NOTE: Think carefully about the username you choose. Once it’s been selected, you won’t be able to change or transfer it.
Here is how you can get it done; it is easy , you get options to choose from. http://www.facebook.com/username/
I hope this helps
