Claiming Your Facebook Vanity URL

Updated: Sep 13

A key step in personalizing your Facebook business page, as well as creating a unified brand identity, is claiming your Facebook handle, also known as a vanity URL.

This handle will allow your page’s web address to be customized. Instead of the default jumble of numbers and letters like facebook.com/alkjsdlfkjwelkrjlkjf13lkj234, you’ll be able to direct your viewers to facebook.com/yourveterinaryclinic.


To customize, you’ll need to be an admin on your practice’s Facebook page. This process is easiest done on a desktop, where you’ll

  1. Click “About” on the left-hand toolbar.

  2. Click “edit” next to your current page username

  3. Enter a new username, up to 50 characters

  4. If the username is available, you’ll see a green check and the “Create Username” button enabled.
