Hi, my name is Freddie Kuguru and this is how to remove your nickname on Facebook. You may want to change or remove your nickname on Facebook if say for example you just graduated from college and you're entering the job market or you're job hunting and you're making a lot of connections with new and potential employers and on Facebook your nickname might still be previous nickname that you used in college say Frank the tank or whatever and you don't want that to appear to your potential future boss. This is how you would change or remove your nickname on Facebook. Simply log in to your Facebook account and go to your settings page by clicking in the top right hand corner add the arrow that points down and from the drop down menu click on settings. And so this will bring you to your settings page and make sure you're under the general tab right there. And then you'll see your name there and you can scroll over to the right and hit edit. And then what you want to do is change your alternate name listed right there. You can either delete it or leave it there if you want. Say you feel you might use it again in the future you can leave it there and then simply uncheck the box that says include on my timeline. And then once you've either deleted it or unchecked that box click save changes and it will be saved and it will no longer be visible on your timeline. And that is how you remove or update your Facebook nickname.
