For example, instead of an URL like this: Facebook.com/JaneSpear49374/7565788/ref=td
Which is not easy to remember. Once your page reaches 30 Likes, this number sometimes has changed, you can have an URL like this:
Facebook recommends you consider the extension you'll use prior to committing, and create a "handle" as close as possible to your public figure name or business name. This change will be permanent, non-transferrable and unalterable. These usernames can be only Alphanumeric characters [a-z, 0-9] or a period[.].
Once you have given this some thought, go to www.facebook.com/username
Choose "Select a Username...", a drop-down menu appears, select the page you want to make a user name for. If your page has reached 30 Likes (or whatever the number required is today) a box will appear. Then you enter your desired name, FB checks for availability. If that name is available for use, terms for use will appear. If you are happy with the selection, click "confirm" or if not, choose "cancel" in order to try another name.
When you have success, you are ready to share your new Facebook URL:
REMEMBER: this won't work until you have reached 30 or the required number of FB Likes
