A Facebook page can offer your followers an easy way to find your contact information, products, recent projects and more.

But let’s say you have a solid following but want to consider a rebrand. That means rethinking your social media presence as well, including the basics, such as changing your handles to match your new name.

Your Facebook page is made up of both a general page name and a handle. If you want to change your Facebook page name, there are a few stipulations and best practices you should keep in mind. For starters, make sure you choose a name you really feel confident about so that you won’t have to change your name page too frequently and confuse followers.

Once you decide on a new moniker, here’s how to make the change — from both desktop and mobile.

How to change your Facebook page name on desktop

1. Go to your page and click on “About” from the left-hand side menu.

2. In that menu you should see some of the main attributes of your page under “General.” Hit “Edit” next to “Name.”

3. You will then see a new window that reads “Request New Page Name.” Facebook will need to approve your change to make sure the new name isn’t misleading or inappropriate. This window gives you a few quick pointers about the best way to choose a new name. Among them: don’t use the word “official” or “Facebook” in the new title.
