Create Facebook Custom Username

Social Media Tip

  • Claim Your Custom Facebook Page Username!

There are many things you should do to improve your “branding” and professional appearance when utilizing social media.

Paying close attention to URLs, or in this case, the Facebook “page” username, is one of them.

Social Media Networks provide opportunities to improve your overall “online presence”.

Examples of popular Social Networks include:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • LinkedIn

Choosing A Good Username

Of course, many names will already be taken, so you may have to experiment.

A note from 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.”

Visit Facebook’s Username help page for more information.

Remember these guidelines when choosing a username:

  • Keep it short
  • Keep it as simple as possible
  • Place an emphasis on readability

Sometimes it’s the little things you do with Social Media that make a big difference and help get you noticed.
