This morning Facebook just announced an upgrade for pages, amongst other changes. As a marketing professional who specialises in social media training and consulting, Facebook both drives me crazy and delights me with their constant changes.

This post will take you through how to set up a unique username on Facebook for your business (also known as a facebook URL or vanity URL).
