    I created a new Facebook page for my website, and I picked the "community or cause" option.

    The problem is, when I Google my facebook page is doesn't show up, granted I just created it a week ago.

    But why is it that some people have their Facebook page as www.facebook.com/company or website name

    But I have www.facebook.com/pages/ my company name/ a lot of numbers

    Why?

    How can I get my Facebook page to read www.facebook.com/company name?

    You have to create a username for your page, but you should have 200 or more fans to be eligible for this feature...

    You can find it under Settings - Page Info - Page Address

    You will have the privilege of setting up an username for your facebook page once your page gets 25 fans.

    When you have 35+ likes on your page, go to Edit Page > Update page info > Page Address and change it there.

    Good luck
