How do I give out a link to my facebook profile?

Asked by zzztimbo (59 points ) June 25th, 2007

Can someone tell me what a link to a facebook profile looks like? Is it of the format:
http://csupomona.facebook.com/profile.php?id=xxx

Facebook has a new 'Public Profile' or 'Public Listing' feature, and although I don't know how to enable it on your profile, or how to build the resulting URL, it is possible - just look at this google search:
http://www.google.com/search?q=facebook%20public%20listing

See if a google search for 'facebook your name' or 'facebook public listing your name', replacing 'your name' with your actual real name, turns up anything...

You've got the right syntax in your original question, but what is displayed to non-Facebook users may be limited.

a facebook public listing looks this http://www.facebook.com/p/Fred_Wilson/713962

or you could have a totally public profile like myspace that doesnt even require users to sign in like this one http://www.facebook.com/p/Ron_Paul/732025404

Nope, Googling my name site:facebook.com doesn't yield much.

After you're logged in, hit this page in Facebook (Privacy settings for search): http://www.facebook.com/privacy.php?view=search

Make sure "allow anyone to see my private listing" is checked, and your settings are saved. Next to that checkbox there's a link that says "view my public listing". That's the link you send out.

Hi
you can go to facebook.com/username link after logging in to the facebook account. Then you will get a chance to make your Facebook profile link.

Log on to facebook.com click on the username then you will have your profile link displayed on the address toolbar.

When you logged in to your account click the “Account” beside the “Profile” on the upper right corner. Then search for account setting. Then click it after that you will see your account settings. Search for “username” then click change… then type your decide name for your account. Hope this helps.
