How to get a Short Facebook Profile Link

Hi everyone. It has been a long time I posted something about facebook. Today I will tell you something interesting which will make your facebook profile link short. As we all now have a facebook account. It has been big news for everyone to know about what’s new in facebook. Lots of people will show interest in there facebook accounts, that your profile should look and the new profile thumbnail pictures and etc. Some people will also concentrate on there facebook profile link. Actually the profile id of facebook is pretty long with some codes and numbers in it. It will represent your facebook account in the database of facebook. Now facebook gave a opportunity to change your profile id link too. Instead of the long number s and code links which are very ugly to see, can be replaced with any name which you want.

Which means that I can replace my profile id with any name I want, but first it should be available in the database? For example take a look at my friends profile id which is somewhat like this as you can see the profile link is very big and looks weird. You can change that link to whatever name you want. That means he can change it to. if it is available. Orelse he can go to This looks very neat and professional. I have changed my Facebook profile id to which looks neat and relative to my site url. Similarly you can create a short facebook link to your fan pages, apps and etc. To make your facebook link short follow these simple steps.

  1. Login to your facebook Account.
  2. Open This Link
  3. You will be redirected to a page.
  4. In that Select your Profile ID and it asks your desired username.
  5. Type the desired username in the given box and check availability.
  6. If it is available then click on confirm.

Before you confirm it, you have to keep some rules in mind.

  1. You can’t change the username once you set it.
  2. You can’t transfer the ownership of a username to another party.
  3. You can’t violate anyone else’s trademark rights.
  4. If you are acquiring a username to sell it in the future (squatting), you will lose it.
  5. Usernames may be reclaimed for other unauthorized usages.

If these things are ok with you then change your username now. This is one type of making a short facebook profile link. If you want to know the second step. Just follow this Links below. This application is called as Memorable Web Address For your Facebook Profile. Follow the same steps which are in step 1. Just click this Link to open the link.

  1. Really nice bro.. i made a memorable address for my computer tweaks group on fb..!

  2. The link ( ) to set a custom username seems to be having issues. It gives me this message:

    “Before you can set your username, you need to confirm your email address.
    Don’t see the confirmation email? Click the button below to resend.”

    “An error has occurred”

    I have used the link successfully in the past but now get this. Any thoughts? I am successfully signed in. [??]

  3. Please go with the first method of username link. and more over i think ur facebook is verified with a email. or else you couldnt able to use facebook features. Just verify the facebook with there verification mail. or just check out whether you are logged in your acount properly or not :) thankyou.

  9. THANK YOU SO MUCH,ur subject so great dud.really thank you so much

  10. 10nx…..4 da tag…..

  11. Can you help please. If you have created a page on facebook do you still have the same URL Id as your main site or does it create a different one? I want to link my website to just the page. Thanks

    • Yes, you can change it to your wish. Usually people put the same name as the name of the site is, but many of them forget the fact that, we can even change or put any other name to a page name url. If you want to change your url name to some thing else, you can surely do it.. and if u want to change the page name, the likes should be below 200 likes. :)

  12. Thanks for your help Satish. So if I have got this right and to get through my thick brain. My url id on my page is different to my main site url. I have looked up the 15 number digit ID and it is different. Could you just confirm that I have got that right. Cheers J

  13. I already have a user name. But when I tried to open the link it is not opening.

  14. yes thanks
