I joined FaceBook just a few days ago, and noticed that it has got loads of stuff compared to my previous favorite Social Networking Site: Orkut. Then while I was visiting one of my friends profile, I noticed the URL had my friends name at the end “http://www.facebook.com/name“…but mine wasn’t so, it just had some numbers :X
I tried to find out how I could get that sorta URL, I asked that guy how he got it and he said that he has forgotten how he did it and asked me to look for it somewhere in the settings. I hunted every settings page, only to find that there wasn’t any option called “Custom Profile URL“!
At last, went to my best(est) friend Google, and found that FaceBook has started offering Profile URLs with the Usernames at the end, i.e, “http://www.facebook.com/selectedusername“. But I didn’t find a way to get the Username and there wasn’t any “Username” option in the settings too.
Somewhere @ Some Forum, Someone told to visit http://www.facebook.com/username and enter a Username over there, then you would get the Custom URL, if your luck is good.
I did that, at the next step I had to verify my mobile no. to get the Custom URL, and at last I got it!
Now my FB Profile URL is Facebook.com/hakminded :)
Don’t have a Custom FB Profile URL? Get it Here !
Note : You cannot change the username later,so be sure to grab a good one!
