Rameez Ramzan Ali, Sr Digital Marketing Executive at Cubix, Inc. · What’s your Facebook Page URL? Your Facebook Page URL is the part of your web address after the Log In or Sign Up. So in the case of my Fan Page, we’re talking about the rameezbardai. Facebook calls this your username. It’s also often referred to as your vanity URL. Important Rules & Considerations for Your Facebook Page URL Not surprisingly, Facebook has a host of rules about usernames. You can’t claim a username someone else is already using. Your username should be as close as possible to your true name or the name of the business or person your Page represents (ex: John.Smith, Facebook). Choose a username you’ll be happy with for the long term. Usernames are not transferable and you can only change your username once. Usernames can only contain alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) or a period (“.”). Periods (“.”) and capitalization don’t count as a part of a username. For example, johnsmith55, John.Smith55 and john.smith.55 are all considered the same username. Usernames must be at least 5 characters long and can’t contain generic terms. Your username must adhere to Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
How to Change a Facebook Page URL Log in as the personal profile that’s an Admin of the Page you wish to change. Start the process from the About tab under your Cover Photo –> Page Info. If you haven’t already changed your URL, you’ll see the Edit button when you hover the Facebook Web Address area.
Clicking the Edit button will open a small window with a link to Change web address – if you’re eligible. Click it and, ensuring you’re on the correct page on the dropdown, type in your preferred username. Click Check Availability. If it’s available, and you’re SURE you want to make the ONE-TIME change, click Confirm.
