Why and how to rename your Facebook fan page URL

The biggest reason to change your fan page url is for promotion and marketing purposes.  This makes it easier for others and yourself to tag and promote you.

  • In a Facebook post someone can tag you by just simply adding the @ symbol @nameofyourpage
  • For offline advertising you can use a Facebook image and add thenameofyourpage next to it

Try and keep it as short as possible and closely related to the name of your business.  Long names can be tiresome for someone to type out.

Why use this:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/nameofpage/490703907656617 (example dummy url)

When it could be something as simple as:
