Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why don’t I have the option to change a page’s Facebook name?
A: You need to have a full admin role to be able to change a Facebook page name. Editors, moderators, advertisers, analysts, and live contributors cannot change a Facebook’s page name. If you were just given the admin role, try to log out and log back into your account.

Q: Why does it take so long for Facebook to approve my page name request?
A: Facebook page name approval may take longer for some pages. Normally, a request for a change to a Facebook Page name is approved in one to three days. If your request is not approved after that time period, try to resend the request. Also, see to it that your requested page name is allowed on Facebook. Abusive terms, misleading words, improper and unnecessary use of capitalization and punctuation, are some of the common reasons why requests are not approved.

Q: I just changed my Facebook Page name. Now I want to change it again. Is there a limit to Facebook Page name changes?
