I've been asked several times extremely lately about altering web page url, to make sure that indicates it's time for a blog post!
How To Change A Facebook Page Url
Actions To Take Prior To You Change Your Username
Your username creates the real unique web link for your Facebook web page. Before you alter this, make a listing of every one of the locations online that link to your web page, or materials that have your existing URL detailed on them. As an example:
-other social media networks
-brochures, posters, marketing materials
As soon as you change your username, the old web link will be damaged. As far as I recognize, there is no chance to establish a momentary redirect from your old username to your new one so you want to see to it that you are prepared to update these points as soon as you change your username.
Ways to Change Your Username
When your page is developed, a username is automatically generated that appears like www.facebook.com/Your-Page-Name-Here-2398613149875983. Not really appealing, not really easy to keep in mind, not really simple to fit on a business card!
Formerly, admins can just change a web page username 2 times and afterwards it was permanent - Facebook seems to have actually lifted that limitation!
From your web page, most likely to Around (on the left sidebar).
Click Edit beside Username.
Type your new username. You have 50 characters.
- Suggestion: although usernames are not instance delicate, consider capitalizing the initial letter of each word for far better readability
If your username is available, double check the spelling
Click Create Username
Referral the checklist you made previously and also update any web links that are pointing to your old address
CAN'T CHANGE YOUR USERNAME?
There might be something in your name that breaks the customized username guidelines. From the Facebook assistance center:
-You can just have one username for your Page or profile and also you can not claim a username someone else is already making use of.
-Usernames could only have alphanumeric personalities (A-Z, 0-9) or a duration (".").
-Periods (".") and capitalization don't count as a part of a username. For example, johnsmith55, John.Smith55 and john.smith.55 are all thought about the exact same username.
-Usernames must be at the very least 5 characters long as well as can not have common terms or expansions (ex-spouse:. com,. web).
-You have to be an admin to develop or transform the username for a Page.
-Your username have to comply with the Facebook Declaration of Civil Liberties as well as Obligations.
In addition, you may not be able to transform your username till your page has 25 likes - although this isn't really constant for every user.
