How to add a custom "vanity url" to your facebook Pages page.

Here is how Facebook describes Page usernames:

“Usernames allow public entities to easily promote your presence on Facebook with a short URL. This username can be used in your marketing communications, company website and business cards.”

If you pick the username “AHFXnet,” then your Page’s URL becomes “”

It is important to note that you need at least 25 fans before you can create a custom URL for your Facebook page. You must also be an admin of the Page in order to secure its custom URL.

Facebook also says,

“Usernames can only contain alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) or a period (".").”

We recommend picking a short and memorable username that reflects your company name or brand. You cannot change your username, so think wisely and ask for a second opinion when deciding on your page’s permanent username. For branding purposes we would suggest you use the same name as your twitter account.

Here are the steps to create your custom Facebook URL.
