Facebook Pages 101: How to Find and Copy a Page's URL

If you’re an avid Facebook user, you’ve probably clicked the link to someone’s profile or business page and wished that it were easier to get that URL in order to promote their page to others or find the page again later on when you want to share something with them. Fortunately, Facebook allows you to do just that! Here’s how to find and copy any Facebook page’s URL, so you can use it in the future.

Finding the Facebook Profile URL

To find the Facebook profile URL for any page, click on the page in question to go to their Facebook page. Once there, you will find their username in the top right-hand corner of the page. Click on it and copy it. The URL is typically at the end of this string of letters and numbers, but if not, just paste it all back together and you’ll have your Facebook profile URL to share or save!

If you’ve ever wanted to share or save any page, you’ll find their Facebook profile page URL handy. You can easily locate it by clicking on their username at the top right of their Facebook page. This will bring up everything about that particular profile, including its URL. The process is typically quite easy; however, if you want to copy more than one username you’ll need another tool. Luckily there are several available which can help make saving these profiles as simple as copying and pasting!

Finding a Facebook Business Page URL

Navigate to the Facebook business page for which you want to find the URL. Click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen. Click on See More. In the top left of the screen, you should see Copy Link Address. Click on it and then paste this address into your browser to visit that page.

If you are unable to locate that link, it is possible that someone else has already created an alternate web address for your business page. To find out if someone has done so, visit your Facebook business page and click on See More in step 3 above. If a different web address appears, you will be able to copy that URL. Otherwise, use a search engine such as Google or Bing to look up your business name with facebook or fb as part of it. You may be able to find your Facebook business page using one of these queries.

The importance of copying URLs

This is an important thing to do for any company page, as you’ll use the URL of the page to promote the page and the profile. To find the URL, visit your Facebook business page or profile in your browser, hover over the three dots on the upper right corner of your cover photo and click copy link address. This will copy the web address to your clipboard so you can paste it elsewhere or share it with someone else.

Once you have your page or profile’s web address, you can use it for all sorts of things. You can share it with clients, other business partners, friends or family. You can also use it as part of your promotions in an email newsletter or through Facebook ads. Using a custom landing page is another great way to help promote social sharing as well!

Facebook is constantly rolling out new features for its users, both as part of larger initiatives like Messenger but also in order to fill out more niche needs. The ability to view and copy link from Facebook profiles was introduced late 2017, so if you haven’t seen it before you might be surprised when you see it.
