How I Change the Name of My Facebook Page
We all know that Facebook pages are a great way to connect with clients and readers for a business or a blog, because more than 900 million people are active on Facebook and almost half of them visit Facebook every day. Here is what Facebook has to say about changing page name.
We also know how important Branding is for a business. We should create a Facebook page only by keeping at all those things in mind, and if you are trying to rebrand your business of blog. Facebook makes it hard to rebrand your page as you cannot change its name whatsoever.
However, it is not impossible to change the name of your Facebook page. Facebook offers an easy way for pages with less than 200 likes. This is for people who feel that they have misspelled their Facebook page name or any other reason, but if you cross that 200 likes mark and get even 201 likes, this this option closes for you (but you can dele some likes and get the number down to 200 again).
For few days, Facebook was offering the other option which was quite hard and required Facebook approval. This that case, Facebook asked for documents which show the proof that you actually have changed the name of your business. But it seems the option is closed by Facebook now. The only option to change the name of your page is to delete and create a new page, which is quite frustrating for business which had more likes, sometimes even more than 10000.
I too had more than 2200 likes of my Facebook page and changed my Facebook page name by bringing the likes fewer than 200.
It was a tough decision to make and took over 3 to bring the likes to 200. But for the purpose of branding, I am happy I did it.
