Fb.me : Facebook URL Shortener Launched

For people like me who are addicted to Facebook and spend most of time on facebook will love this new addition by Facebook team. Fb.me URL shortening service. In general Facebook URL are usually long , before Facebook introduced Facebook username feature and facebook custom name for fan pages, but still photo album URL are too long and ugly. This new Fb.me URL shortening service will make your URL look much better and short and sweet.

Facebook URL Shortener

Though this new feature is released for limited set of users and will be available for everyone soon. You won’t be able to see this new feature in web interface of Facebook but if you use facebook mobile version that is m.facebook.com you might be lucky to see the new fb.me service.

Seems like most of major web services are releasing their own URL Shortening service. Few months back Digg released its own URL shortening service and Stumble upon su.pr service.

You can still see this service live in action for all your facebook profile and pages. For example you can check Shoutmeloud Fan page with this URL : http://fb.me/shoutmeloud

Update: Facebook is not offering their Fb.me URL shortener service to public, but all old links converted using it is working.

    Good post. Does anyone have an opinion around Fb.me? I see lots of Social fold using this service and i’m not entirely convinced around SEO accountability….

  2. Anoop Sudhakaran says

    Its not exactly a URL Shortening service! Its just a short URL of Facebook, You can only shorten the term facebook.com.
