Do you want to update the Facebook profile’s URL to a more noticeable one? This Itechguide explains how to modify the URL of your Facebook profile.

The instructions include how to modify the Facebook URL on an Android, iPhone, or PC.

When you open your profile on Facebook, the last part of the page (after Facebook.com/) is your Facebook URL.

Your Facebook URL cannot be changed directly. Changing your username is the only way to modify your URL. The procedures for the various platforms are listed below.
