Facebook Page plays a vital role for bloggers. I doubt there will be difficult to find a blogger who no Facebook Page. Today I shall share an important information on Facebook Page."Facebook Logo"


From now on you can change your Facebook page URL or username. But there are some restriction you should remember.

Previously you can’t change claimed Facebook page URL. There are some binding. If your page “liked” by 100+, you can’t change your Facebook Page URL.

So previously once you claimed Facebook page URL, there was no option to change. The only way to change username was to delete the old Facebook page & you lose all likes and recreate a new  desired username. (Read: How To Add Blank Status in Facebook)

Several things you should remember before changing Facebook Page Username:

  • When you pick new username, the old one will be omitted. It’ll be no more.
  • You can only change the username once after you set it the first time.
  • You can’t transfer the ownership of a username to another party.
  •  You can’t violate anyone else trademark rights.
  •  If you are acquiring a username to sell it in the future (squatting), you will lose it.
  • Usernames may be reclaimed for other unauthorized usages.

Yes they allow to change but only once. The last time I was able to register was when the fans was below than 100. After 100, it can’t be changed anymore… but not sure how it is now.
