How Do I Change the Name of My Facebook Page?

Have you chosen a name for your Facebook Page and then decided you don’t want to keep it? Or perhaps you want to keep the name of the Page, but noticed you have a typo in the name and because of that need to change it. This actually happened to one of my clients, and he really needed to get it fixed!

The great news is, you can request a Facebook Page name change!

As you know, Facebook is always changing, but at the time this post is being written, if you have fewer than 200 Facebook fans, you can easily change the name of your Facebook Page in the Edit Settings area.

However, if you have more than 200 fans, there are a few more steps you need to take in order to change the name of your Facebook Page.

Step 1: Go in to edit settings and from there, under Page Info, “click edit” next to name.

Step 2: When you click edit, you’ll see something that says, “Request Change” as you can see pictured in step #2 above.

When you click on request change, the box pictured below pops up and gives you information regarding the guidelines for changing the name of your Page.


Step 3: When you click that little box at the bottom that says, “I understand the formatting guidelines for my Page’s new name,” you’ll then go to a page where you’ll enter information about your current Page name and what you want it changed to.


From there, there’s a dropdown where you can select an option that indicates why you want to change your Page’s name.

Here’s the bad news: If you’ve done this more than once, you’ll most likely be unable to change the name of your Facebook Page again. However, if you’ve never changed your Page’s name, you have a good chance of getting it approved.

It may take awhile, so be patient! Wait a good week, and if nothing’s happened, try going through the process over again. Facebook has over a billion active users, so their response time isn’t great. In some cases, people have had to go through the process multiple time in order for it to finally get the attention it needs.

    Good morning Amy. I followed the instructions precisely, but when it comes to subnitting the change request to Facebook, it won’t take it. In other words, the submit button simply doesn’t work. Have you heard of this? Any ideas? Thanks. Randy

    Hi Amy,
    I realize this is an older article, but am hoping you still check your comments. I’m experiencing an error message that I can’t find information on. Specifically, when I go to change my page’s name, I get a message that reads: “The Page name you entered could not be used. Try using “Desired Page Name Here” instead.”

    Any ideas? I don’t really want my page name in quotations, but that seems to be what the error message is prompting.

    I changed my page name but now cannot add new posts. It says I cannot change my visibility until Aug 18. Does that mean no one can see it until then. Is that why I cannot post?
