Want to change the name of your Facebook page? Now you can.

On wednesday Facebook announced that they were going to make it easier to change the name of Facebook pages or Fan Pages as they are also known. Previously page administrators with less than 100 fans were only able to change the name of their page by submitting a request to Facebook. Now you can change it yourself, but only once and if you have less than 200 fans. If you need to change it again for whatever reason you must then submit a request to Facebook.

To change your Facebook pages username follow these steps:

  1. You must be signed in as the administrator account 
  2. Go to the page you wish to change
  3. At the top of the page select the "Edit Info" drop down box and select "Update Info"
  4. Select "Basic Information" as below and click on "Change Username" as highlighted below
