Ways to Creating a Custom URL for your Facebook Profile

Facebook has taken over the world of social media through its revolutionary services. You can do a host of things on the website including searching for your friends, chat with them in real time, use video calling and so much more. Over the years, it has increased its services to not only be able to use maps to locate your friends and see the places where they have checked in, but also interact with them through mobile platforms.

The URL of your Facebook profile contains a set of numbers but you can easily create your own customized name, so that your friends can easily find you online. Once you confirm your personalized URL, it will appear instead of those numbers.
