Give your UU Facebook page a USERNAME


If you maintain a Facebook page, this post is for you.

When you create a page it starts of with a horribly long URL like the following:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/superlong/cantrememberit/ortweetit/orinclude/it/in/a-newsletter/34023502395230523/

This is how all pages start out.  But your URL doesn’t have to stay this way!  Once you reach 20 fans you can set the username for the page.  This creates a nice short URL.

For example, after we built up some fans I changed the Ballou Channing District’s username to bcduua which makes the URL for the fanpage http://www.facebook.com/bcduua

To do this for your fanpage visit http://www.facebook.com/username

This will give you the option to create/change your personal username and below that, the username for any of your pages. Once you’ve done that you may easily share the link via newsletters, fliers, email signatures and the like.
