I've been asked numerous times extremely recently concerning changing page url, to ensure that suggests it's time for a blog post!
How To Change Url In Facebook Page
Steps To Take Before You Change Your Username
Your username creates the real special link for your Facebook page. Before you alter this, make a listing of all of the places online that link to your page, or products that have your existing URL listed on them. For example:
-other social media networks
-brochures, posters, marketing materials
As soon as you alter your username, the old web link will certainly be damaged. Regarding I recognize, there is no chance to establish a short-term redirect from your old username to your new one so you want to make certain that you are prepared to update these points when you alter your username.
How To Change Your Username
When your web page is created, a username is automatically created that looks like www.facebook.com/Your-Page-Name-Here-2398613149875983. Not really appealing, not very simple to remember, not very easy to fit on a calling card!
Formerly, admins can only transform a web page username 2 times and afterwards it was irreversible - Facebook seems to have raised that limitation!
From your page, most likely to About (on the left sidebar).
Click Edit beside Username.
Kind your new username. You have 50 characters.
- Idea: even though usernames are not case sensitive, consider capitalizing the initial letter of each word for far better readability
If your username is readily available, double check the punctuation
Click Create Username
Reference the checklist you made formerly and update any kind of links that are indicating your old address
CAN'T CHANGE YOUR USERNAME?
There may be something in your name that breaks the customized username guidelines. From the Facebook assistance facility:
-You could just have one username for your Web page or profile and also you can not claim a username somebody else is currently utilizing.
-Usernames can just have alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) or a period (".").
-Periods (".") and capitalization don't count as a part of a username. As an example, johnsmith55, John.Smith55 and john.smith.55 are all taken into consideration the exact same username.
-Usernames have to go to the very least 5 personalities long as well as cannot include common terms or extensions (ex:. com,. web).
-You should be an admin to create or transform the username for a Page.
-Your username should stick to the Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
In addition, you may not be able to transform your username up until your web page has 25 sort - although this isn't regular for each individual.
