In the 21st-century digital era, social networks like Facebook have replaced much of our paper communications. But the business card remains a useful communication tool for sharing your important details with customers, clients and anyone else you do business with. You can tie the two communication methods together by including your Facebook page on your business cards.
Facebook pages allow businesses to interact with their customers and clients. You can use your page to post updates about your business — for instance, if you're having a sale or a special offer. You can also upload photos and videos to share with your customers and ask them survey questions. Your customers can give you feedback on Facebook by responding to your posts, giving you a better sense of what they like or dislike about your business.

Facebook User Names
Facebook user names allow people to easily access your website. To create a username, visit the Facebook username page (facebook.com/username). Select the page that you want to name using the drop-down menu. Then enter your desired username. Select something easy to remember, such as the name of your business. Click "Check availability," and if the name is available, confirm it. Be aware that once you choose a username for your page, you can change it only once.
Facebook Page on Business Cards
To access your Facebook page, people can enter the Facebook Web address followed by your username. For example, if your username is "acmecompanyinc" then you would type "www.facebook.com/acmecompanyinc" in the address bar of your browser. Include the full address for your page, including both the Facebook address and your username, on your business cards to help people find your page.
Including Facebook Email
Your Facebook username also serves as your username for Facebook email. For example, if your username is "genericcompany" then your Facebook email address would be firstname.lastname@example.org. This feature allows people to contact you via Facebook even if they don't have a Facebook account. Include this email address on your business cards to give nonusers of Facebook an easy way to connect with you.
