How to link to your Facebook profile: public profile link and NOT public profile link

Slowly Facebook has disabled direct links to profiles. Originally you could link to

All you had to do was copy and paste the URL from your address bar while you were logged into Facebook and you were good to go!

But the Facebookers disabled that.

If you want to keep all your information private, but want to post a link to add you as a friend, now you can do a search and limit it by id number:

To view the above link, you still have to login. If you don’t want users to have to log in and don’t mind submitting your profile to search engines, now you can create a public profile and link to it

I could not find anywhere that would list how to make this URL. I looked around and had to try the schema by example. It is as listed above with your profile id attached to the end instead of the “000000000″
