If you have a Facebook Fan page, the first thing that you need to be aware of is the customized page name. You just need to go to http://www.facebook.com/username in order to set your Fan page up with a unique page name. But what if you need to change a page name that you’ve already set? I’ll review that topic in this article.
The process for changing your Fan page name depends entirely on how many “likes” your page has. If you have less than 200 then simply Follow Facebook’s instructions, found here. If you have more than 200 Fans then the process is a little trickier.
For businesses with over 200 likes you’ll want to click edit page > update info > change username. You’ll then see a screen like this…
You’ll then have the ability to change your username. Keep in mind that, after you set your username the first time, you can only change it once after that. After confirming that the username you’re requesting is available, Facebook will then ask for your reason for the change. If your business name changed you may be required to show documentation of this.
Of course, by the time I publish this article the rules and guidelines for changing your Fan page url might have already changed, but we’ll try to keep you updated on any Facebook-related news.
