Quick Instructions For Shortening Your Facebook Page Link

Did you know that you can modify your Facebook business page URL. This is a great way for shortening your link if it contains numbers after your name. For example, when I first set up my Facebook business page for Wonderful Websites url was automatically set to https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wonderful-Websites/111323952262199?ref=hl. The purpose of these instructions is to show you how to shorten this url to something like https://www.facebook.com/WonderfulWebsites

Step 1.

Go go www.facebook.com/username

Step 2.

Select your page name from the drop down menu. You will then be presented with a new field for entering your desired username.

Step 3.

Once you have added your desired username, click on Check Availability. You will then be presented with a confirmation screen. Make sure you check your username and agree with all of the terms.

Step 4.

Finally you will be presented with a message to say that your change was successful. Well done!

Finally, please remember to update any links that you have to your old URL.

Good luck,
