Creating a Facebook Page Part III: Creating a vanity URL

Unfortunately, the URL to your page on Facebook  is an impossible-to-remember huge string of numbers and letters.   Vanity URLs which are shorter and easier to remember are only available to businesses which spend a significant amount of money on Facebook advertising (for instance, The Gap has  http://www.facebook.com/gap).

But using your own website and hosting company’s “subdomain” creation facility, you can create something like http://www.thatsoftwareguy.com/facebook or http://facebook.thatsoftwareguy.com and have them point to http://www.facebook.com/pages/That-Software-Guy/29706430641.  URLs like these are much easier to remember and pass around.
