How do I get a Facebook vanity URL?

After you have 25 fans for your business you can customize your Facebook URL or also called "vanity url".

Instead of your Facebook URL looking like this: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Eden-Prairie-MN/Pederson-Realty/394372458011

It can look something like this: https://www.facebook.com/pedersonrealty

Simple, Neat, Professional and memorable.

Why should I Get a Facebook Vanity URL?

Choosing a username is optional but adds an extra level of professionalism to your business page and gives you a shorter, more memorable web address for your business page. Don't hesitate - you want to ensure that you get your business name before someone else does.

There's nothing stopping someone from grabbing your company name on Facebook, Twitter or another social profile (even if you have it trademarked), and it's near impossible right now to do anything about it if they do. Sure, you have the legal rights to your company name, if it's trademarked, but if I were you, I'd rather just grab it for free in 30 seconds in case you change your mind in a few months and decide Twitter is important to you after all.
