Follow the below guidelines for creating custom url on Facebook Account.

  • You can’t claim a username someone else is already using.
  • I already told that you can only change your username once. So, choose a username you’ll be happy with for the long term.
  • Usernames can only contain alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) or a period (“.”).
  • Usernames are not case sensitive and periods (“.”) and capitalization don’t count as a part of a username. For example, johnsmit55, John.Smith55 and john.smith.55 are all considered the same username.
  • Usernames must be at least 5 characters long and can’t contain generic terms or extensions (ex: .com, .net).

Now Follow below steps for getting custom Facebook URL on your Account.

Login to your Facebook account  and Open Facebook settings or you can open Facebook Settings from this url https://www.facebook.com/settings .

Here, click on Edit link just in front of Username section.
