So you’ve got a great new Facebook fan page and you’d like to share it with the world on your website, promotional materials, business cards, and more.

There’s a super easy solution, and one that’s easily overlooked if you’ve never seen it. Simply use the shortened url.


Facebook automatically redirects the shortened URL. As long as you’re using the correct string after the / (in this case ‘boopsocial’), the link should redirect to the full without issue.
