Step 1: Access Your Page Settings

  • Log into your Facebook account and navigate to your business Page.
  • Click on ‘About’ on the left-hand side of your Page.

Step 2: Locate the Username Section

  • In the ‘About’ section, find the ‘General’ category.
  • Look for the ‘Username’ field. This is where your current @name is displayed.

Step 3: Edit Your Username

  • Click the ‘Edit’ option next to your current username.
  • Enter your new desired username. This username will be part of your new URL (e.g.,[newusername]).

Step 4: Check Availability

  • Once you enter the new username, Facebook will check if it’s available.
  • Your desired username must be unique, not already taken by another page or profile.

Step 5: Comply with Username Guidelines

  • Your new username should be closely related to your business name or the brand you represent.
  • It should be easy to type and remember, avoiding excessive punctuations or special characters.
  • Usernames are limited to alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) and periods (“.”).
  • Periods are not counted as part of the username’s uniqueness (e.g., @YourBusinessName is the same as @Your.Business.Name).

Step 6: Save Changes

  • If your chosen username is available and meets Facebook’s guidelines, click ‘Save Changes.’
  • Your Page’s URL will instantly update to reflect the new username.

Things To Consider:

  • Once you change your username, the old URL will no longer direct visitors to your page.
  • It’s advisable to inform your followers about this change to avoid confusion.
  • Consider updating any printed or digital materials that feature your old Facebook URL.


  • If you receive an error stating the username is not available or doesn’t meet guidelines, you will need to try a different username.
  • Sometimes, the username may not update immediately due to server delays. Give it a little time before trying again.

Changing your Facebook Page’s username is a simple yet impactful way to align your online presence with your brand identity. Remember to choose a username that is recognizable, memorable, and an accurate representation of your business for the best results.
