*SOLVED* Changing a Facebook Business Page Name with the new Facebook?

Post by ColinM » Tue Mar 10, 2020 5:30 am

Ok brains trust out there...hope you can help.

I want to change the name of my business page.

In the original Facebook desktop browser interface, you simply went to the page as admin, clicked on the About on the LHS and changed the name.

Now, that "About" doesn't exist and a search of the WWW supplies goodness knows help results - but all of them I looked at are for the old version of FB.

Anyone help with this please? :shock: :? :|


I've raised a help with FB - but at 63 years of age, I might snuff it before I get a response, let alone a decent and helpful one. :lol:

Cracked It! I can’t believe I missed this. For the benefit of you and others:
CHANGING FB BUSINESS PAGE NAME VIA 2020 COMPUTER BROWSER BASED INTERFACE:
1 Go to Bushiness Page.
2 In LH vertical menu – click on Page Settings at the bottom.
3 In LH vertical menu – click on Page Info.
4 Edit the Name field.
5 Click on the now highlighted Save Changes button.
6 Follow the prompts.

FB says it could take up to 3 days to be assessed and approved, but my change was instant. You receive a notification from FB.
