How to change a page name on Facebook

Many people own a Facebook page, whether it’s to promote a business, celebrate a fandom or show off pictures of your pets. But there may come a time that you want to tweak the name of your Facebook page.

You may want to change your Facebook page name to correct a typo, or even just to give it a fresh new look. Either way, Facebook fortunately offers you the option to do so, although you can only make a tweak every 60 days.

Before we guide you through the process of how you can change your Facebook page name, it’s important to note that there are two types of Facebook pages: Classic pages and New pages. 

For Classic pages, you’ll need to be an admin to tweak the name, while if you’re using the New page experience, you’ll need Facebook access (task access won’t be enough). 

If none of that is an issue, and you’re ready to finally change a page name on Facebook, then follow the steps below.

What you’ll need

  • A Facebook page with a name you want to change 
  • Admin rights to that page
