First of all we should define what exactly is a "facebook username". And then we will explain how to get the desired username.

A Facebook username is a customized web address for your Facebook Timeline or Facebook Page. We may also call it your personal Facebook Web Address.  It will show up on your browser, just after the http://www.facebook.com/ when your page is displayed. Just like in the screenshot below:

This Facebook concept is available for both personal timelines and Facebook pages, however on this post we will focus for the usage on Facebook pages only. At this point we should also mention that your Facebook Username is different than your Facebook Page name, although you may chose the same name for both.

As you might have already noticed the Facebook username might play a crucial role for your Facebook page. Probably the most important one, would be to be able to use your own business/brand/company name as a facebook username. Just like in the example below:

Alternatively you might want to use your facebook username for something different than your business name. For example something that will make it easier for people to find your facebook page. Or you might want to try to get a keyword related to your business. This could also help your SEO efforts. Here is an example:

Another advantage of choosing a Facebook Username is to have a more memorable Facebook URL. It is more convenient to use a short username on all your marketing materials instead of the default URL created by Facebook. Which includes numbers and which looks like this:
