in/ is where your custom URL will appear. The new URL must have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 300 characters. You can not use spaces, symbols, or special characters in your URL.
You will likely want to change it to your name in some fashion. Keep in mind, though, that your profile URL is not case-sensitive, which means both “RaymondOglesby” and “raymondoglesby” are the same.
While changing the URL, also keep in mind that you can only do this five times in a six months period.
