Your plans for building a social media presence for your business, handmade  shop or website most likely include the use of a Facebook fan page.  Anyone who has a personal Facebook account can create their own fan page, but until you have at least 25 fans of your page, you are stuck with their default Facebook fan page URL.

3. If you are an admin for more than one fan page, you’ll first be asked which fan page you want to customize.  Double-check that you have selected the correct page before continuing. After choosing your fan page, you’ll be asked for your desired fan page username.

Enter your business, etsy shop or website name (no spaces allowed between words), and check for availability.

Please note: once your fan page username is set, you will not be able to edit nor transfer that name. So check twice before clicking.

Also be sure to update any existing links for your Facebook fan page, including the linked social media button on your website.

Having a customized Facebook page URL assists in your overall branding efforts as well as makes your fan page URL easier for your fans to remember.
