If you are interested in understanding how to change the name of the Facebook page by acting as a computer, the first step you must take is to log in to the social network with your account (or in any case with the one you use to manage the page) and connect to the appropriate section of the same dedicated to your fanpage.
To do this, first open the browser with which you usually surf the net, type www.facebook.com in the address bar and then press the button Enter on the keyboard so that you can connect to the main Facebook page. Now fill in the appropriate forms located at the top right by typing the email address or telephone number you use to access the social network and the relative password, then press the button Log in.

If you can’t find the page, click on the item Manage Pages in the menu and then click on your fanpage name.
Now, click on the item Information found on the left, locate the section General and then click the link Edit that you find in correspondence with the wording First name. Then type the new name you want to assign to the fanpage in the field New page name and then click the button Keep it going to apply the changes made.
To conclude, click on the button Request the change. Once this is done, the Facebook team will review your page name change request. The analysis may take up to a maximum of 3 days and further information may need to be provided. If the change is approved, you will not be able to hide the page or change its name again for 7 days. During this time, Facebook may also notify people who like your page that its name has been updated.
When going to change the name of the Facebook page, please note that this can have a maximum length of 75 characters including spaces and that you will not be able to use terms or phrases that are offensive or that do not respect someone’s rights. In addition, the page name may not contain incorrectly used capital letters, similar or unnecessary punctuation marks, long descriptions, any variations of the word “facebook” and misleading terms. I would also like to point out that the names of the pages cannot consist only of generic words and / or generic geographical positions. For more info, you can consult the guidelines provided by the same team of the social network.
Both in the event that the name change of the fanpage is actually implemented and in the event that it is rejected, you will receive an e-mail message from Facebook to the email address associated with your account that will inform you of this. Any changes made will also be reported by Facebook through a specific notification in your account.
In addition to being able to change the name of the Facebook page, you can also change the username associated with it, i.e. the one visible in the address bar when you access your fanpage or when other users view it and that you can share to make it even more easily accessible. your page.
To do this, all you have to do is go to your Facebook page as I have already indicated in the previous lines, click on the item Information located on the left, locate the wording Username in the section General and click the relevant link Edit.
Now, type the new username you want to use in the appropriate empty field visible on the screen, make sure that the new username you have chosen is actually available (you will be shown a warning on the screen) and then click on the button Create username.
Then click on Ok. Unlike the Facebook page name change, the username change is done instantly and there is no need to wait for an analysis of the request from the Facebook team.
However, keep in mind that even in the case of the username there are some rules to be respected, such as: the username can consist of a minimum number of 5 characters and a maximum of 50; the username can only contain alphanumeric characters or a period; period and capital letters make no difference; no generic terms or extensions should be indicated. For more info, you can read the guidelines found in the Facebook Help Center.
