I've been asked a number of times extremely lately regarding changing web page url, so that suggests it's time for a blog post!
Facebook Page Url Change
Actions To Take Before You Change Your Username
Your username produces the actual unique link for your Facebook web page. Before you transform this, make a list of all the areas online that connect to your web page, or materials that have your existing URL listed on them. For example:
-other social media networks
-brochures, posters, marketing materials
As soon as you change your username, the old web link will certainly be broken. Regarding I understand, there is no other way to establish a temporary redirect from your old username to your brand-new one so you want to make sure that you are prepared to upgrade these points as quickly as you change your username.
Ways to Change Your Username
When your page is produced, a username is automatically produced that appears like www.facebook.com/Your-Page-Name-Here-2398613149875983. Not really attractive, not really simple to remember, not extremely simple to fit on a calling card!
Previously, admins might just transform a web page username 2 times and then it was permanent - Facebook seems to have raised that restriction!
From your page, go to Around (on the left sidebar).
Click Edit next to Username.
Type your brand-new username. You have 50 personalities.
- Pointer: despite the fact that usernames are not situation sensitive, consider taking advantage of the first letter of each word for much better readability
If your username is offered, double check the punctuation
Click Create Username
Recommendation the listing you made previously and also upgrade any type of links that are pointing to your old address
CAN'T ALTER YOUR USERNAME?
There could be something in your name that goes against the custom username guidelines. From the Facebook aid facility:
-You could only have one username for your Page or account as well as you can't declare a username someone else is already utilizing.
-Usernames can only have alphanumeric personalities (A-Z, 0-9) or a duration (".").
-Periods (".") and capitalization do not count as a part of a username. For instance, johnsmith55, John.Smith55 and also john.smith.55 are all thought about the very same username.
-Usernames need to be at the very least 5 personalities long as well as can not consist of generic terms or extensions (ex lover:. com,. web).
-You should be an admin to produce or change the username for a Page.
-Your username have to follow the Facebook Declaration of Rights and also Responsibilities.
In addition, you might not be able to transform your username up until your page has 25 sort - although this isn't consistent for every individual.
