How to Change Your FB Name


Facebook is a popular online social networking website. Each person who signs up creates a profile from which she can connect with people. It is important to list your authentic name; however through a review process you may change the name people see on your profile. This allows people to add things like nicknames to their profiles, but only if they are a variation of the first or last name and if they are listed in the correct format. Impersonating someone else is not encouraged and fan pages can be created for celebrities, public figures, and the like.

  • Log in to your Facebook account.

  • Go to the top right hand corner of the screen and click on the "Account" drop down menu. Select "Account Settings."

  • Find the section titled "Name." Look to the right and click on the link that says "Change."

  • Submit the name change for review. Each name change is reviewed by the Facebook team.
