    Which length of URL should be used for Facebook?


    Which length of URL should we be used for Facebook and seen by SEO or Search Engines?

    We know https://www.facebook.com/username

    If we define its own URL per this Facebook link, will be this shorten URL better than usual Facebook URL for pages?

    You should use short URL while sharing on face-book. If your URL is too long then you can use tinyurl to short your URL and then share on face-book. It is easy way.

    The length of URLs isn't too important in SEO. It's more of an appearance thing I think. It's more aesthetically pleasing and simpler to remember shorter URLs.

    But yeah, for Google, it doesnt' really matter.

    Make your URL descriptive (a small one). However, not just url the thing to peform, there are 2 other things in facebook that play along with the url. they are TITLE (by default your page name will acts as title) and description (i.e. about section in the facebook page). so no need to bother about the URL size (but don't make it too big).

    Thanks
