6 Responses to How to Change a Facebook Web Address

    I have a problem. At my company we had a standard profile but thought it better to convert over to a business profile. We had a vanity URL associated with this account.
    On Tuesday when we initiated the change that morning using the business page migration tool we did not get very far in the process.

    When getting onto the page listing the URL, the vanity URL hadn’t been transferred across when Facebook clearly states that the URL is automatically transferred over with moving from a profile to a fan page. Facebook says our web address is already taken.

    I was wondering if you had any ideas why this is happening to us? I have personally looked at through all of the questions and answers on Facebook but nothing seems to work. Any help will be useful!
    Great explanation btw! Thanks!

    I had a poor staff member change the Page url name 3 times and now, it seems set for life. How odd of FB to do something like that. We have 150 users, don’t want to loose em?

      Hi Jimmy, I am not sure why Facebook puts a limit on the number of name changes, but it may help prevent spammers from baiting people into connecting with a Facebook page and then have the page owner switch it to something totally unrelated. You could set up a new page with the name you want and invite all your followers to connect with you there.
