Do you have a Facebook Fan Page?

If so, does your URL look something like this:

http://www.facebook.com/my-really-great-page-for-real/1034809348348

Sexy, right? 😉 I used to have one too!

While updating the quick links page for Pages Gone Wild, Spring Break 2011, I’ve been really surprised by the number of savvy people with page URLs that look like this. It’s easy to overlook until it’s time to share it outside of Facebook.

Wouldn’t you prefer a Page URL to share that looks more like this?

http://www.fb.com/myreallygreatpageforreal

It’s much neater and more understandable to us humans.

Facebook calls it a “Vanity URL.”
