Claim a Vanity URL for Your Social Media Profiles

yMarketingMatters

A vanity URL is a short, unique user name. Vanity URLs are easy to remember, read, share and use in marketing documents, on company websites, and business cards. Instead of having the long default Facebook URL that ends in random numbers that no one can remember, you can choose a short name, suited to your brand and business. For example, when I set up my new Facebook business page, the randomly assigned number and URL was [link].

3.ly, aka Threely , is a fairly new entrant in the URL shortening game, and so far, I really like it.
