How to change the Facebook.com/.................................Page Name ???

by chrisj 7 replies
After creating a Facebook Page (to accompany my web site - as an example: BestGolfSite.com), I see this in the url field(for example):

www.facebook.com/BestGolfSite-248385467821358/

Does it currently take X number of 'likes' to my FB page first before I can have it changed to:

www.facebook.com/BestGolfSite/

If so, how many 'likes' would I need?

Then how do I change it?

    No, it's not related to likes.
    Setup a username, admin for your page. You should be able to change it from page settings.

    Do you have a username set up for your personal account?

    Go to your personal account / settings / general and there is a place to set up a username.

    I have been told that if you don't have it set up (have to be able to verify via mobile phone), then you can't set up a username for any pages.

    Report back...maybe it will solve the problem finally.

    Just go to facebook.com/username and change it. Remember you can only change it once so make sure that you choose the right URL.

    Its Simple .. Setup You Page User Name. You Will Get This Option Below Your Page Name (@username)

    Keep In Mind You Can't Change Your Page User Name After 200+Likes

      Thanks for the replies.
      I accidentally set up the username, that I want for my Page name, as my Profile username. Is there a way to switch that Profile username to my Page username?
