When you have over 25 likers on Facebook, they allow you to have your own URL.  This means you can use this direct link to your Facebook page in advertising, marketing and when networking offline.  Your Page (when created) has a very long, forgettable url which looks like this:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gold-Coast-Airport/135248356506193

To make this look better (and help with search rankings) you should claim your own URL and it will look something more like this:

http://www.facebook.com/NatalieAlaimoPage

As you can see this makes it super easy to tell other people and include in your marketing.  To claim your own URL go to http://www.facebook.com/username

You will have the option to change it only once (if you get it wrong) and each username is unique.  Make sure you double, even triple check your spelling before clicking the confirm button.

Aim for username that is simple, easy and memorable.

Have you claimed your username? Let me know over here on Facebook and of course let me know if you have any questions in the comments.
