Facebook now allows users to secure a URL for both their profiles and any Facebook pages they administer.
Facebook has some nice features and is rich in content. Now is the time to get your vanity URL for you and/or your company.
You can also just give people a straightforward URL string; before, they had to use the search feature to find you.
You can only choose a URL only once, so choose with care! No changes as of press date.
What if someone squatted on your name that you can have access to?
If it is personal, sorry. There are a lot of Joe Smiths, so
will go quickly!
If it is for your company, contact the Facebook team. They may be able to help you and you may have recourse.
Remember: stake your claim now!
