How do I change my Facebook Page’s name?

Facebook Page names must accurately reflect the Page’s topic. You’ll need to be an admin to request a change to your Page’s name. Changing your Page’s name won’t affect its username.

To request a change to your Page name:

  1. Review our Page name standards
  2. Click About on the left-hand side of your Page.
  3. Under General and Name, click Edit.
  4. Enter a new Page name and click Continue.
  5. Review your request and click Request change.

If you don’t see the option to edit your Page’s name:

  • You don’t have a Page role that allows you to change your Page’s name. Learn how to see your Page role.
  • You or another admin recently changed your Page’s name.
  • There may be limits on your Page.

If you are able to submit a name change request, bear in mind that it may take up to three days to review your request and we may require additional information before you receive a final decision. If your name change is approved, you won’t be able to unpublish the Page or change the name again for seven days. During this 7-day period, we may also let the people who like your Page know that the name’s been updated.

How do I change my Facebook username?

To change the username (URL/vanity) for your Facebook profile:

  1. Click (drop-down icon) in the top-right of any Facebook Page and select Settings.
  2. Click Username.
  3. Enter your new username and your password, then click Save Changes.

To change your Page’s username, you’ll need to be a Page admin:

  1. Review our Username Guidelines
  2. Click About on the left-hand side of your Page.
  3. Under General and Username, click Create Page @username or Edit.
  4. Enter a new username and click Create username.

If the username you want isn’t available, it could be for a variety of reasons. For example, even if you think a username isn’t being used, it could be taken by a Page that isn’t published yet. If a username becomes available, it could be given to the first account to request it after it becomes available.
