Facebook Gives Users Personalized Web Addresses

The Facebook Blog announces this week we can now personalize our Facebook pages by using our usernames in the address. So instead of directing friends to www.facebook.com/alsdfkjds1234kfjeis, we can now refer our friends to www.facebook.com/JoePublic.

Why do we care? LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter have become the business card of choice for social media savvy businesses. So now you can advertise your business Facebook page as www.Facebook.com/businessname.

It’s definitely more reader friendly for marketing and advertising materials. To register, go to www.Facebook.com/username. Then consider adding your Facebook address to your business cards as a great way for potential customers/clients to interact with and get to know your business.

Take a look at what Radisson Suites Tucson and Gadabout Salon Spas are doing on Facebook to build relationships with customers/clients. Sharing special VIP events and sales is just one way for a business to gain “friends” online.

How has your business successfully used Facebook?
