Facebook usernames or “vanity urls” have come to my attention lately as I’ve received some questions about them. Facebook has naturally not released that much findable information about them, but they do have information if you know where to look for it. Every day I find new resources when searching the Facebook sphere. So. What about them Usernames and vanity URLS?
Since the 1st of April, when you hit the button to create a Facebook Page, you get a new option. “The Facebook Community Page”. Naturally, Facebook didn’t tell anyone about this prior to its release, and the purpose of this Community page was first thought to be a bad attempt at an April Fools day joke.
