I've been asked numerous times very just recently concerning transforming web page url, so that suggests it's time for a blog post!
How To Change Facebook Business Page Url
Actions To Take Prior To You Change Your Username
Your username creates the actual distinct web link for your Facebook web page. Before you transform this, make a list of all the locations online that link to your page, or products that have your existing URL noted on them. For example:
-other social media networks
-brochures, posters, marketing materials
Once you change your username, the old web link will certainly be broken. Regarding I recognize, there is no way to set up a temporary redirect from your old username to your brand-new one so you wish to see to it that you are prepared to update these points as quickly as you transform your username.
The best ways to Change Your Username
When your page is developed, a username is automatically produced that looks like www.facebook.com/Your-Page-Name-Here-2398613149875983. Not very appealing, not very simple to bear in mind, not extremely easy to fit on a calling card!
Formerly, admins can just alter a page username 2 times and after that it was irreversible - Facebook appears to have lifted that restriction!
From your page, most likely to About (on the left sidebar).
Click Edit beside Username.
Kind your brand-new username. You have 50 characters.
- Tip: although usernames are not instance sensitive, consider capitalizing the very first letter of each word for better readability
If your username is offered, check the punctuation
Click Create Username
Recommendation the listing you made formerly and also upgrade any web links that are indicating your old address
CAN'T ALTER YOUR USERNAME?
There might be something in your name that breaks the custom-made username standards. From the Facebook aid center:
-You can just have one username for your Page or account and also you cannot claim a username another person is already using.
-Usernames can only consist of alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) or a duration (".").
-Periods (".") and also capitalization don't count as a part of a username. For example, johnsmith55, John.Smith55 and also john.smith.55 are all considered the exact same username.
-Usernames need to be at least 5 personalities long and also can not contain common terms or expansions (ex lover:. com,. net).
-You should be an admin to develop or alter the username for a Web page.
-Your username must abide by the Facebook Declaration of Rights as well as Responsibilities.
In addition, you may not have the ability to transform your username until your page has 25 likes - although this isn't constant for every single customer.
