How to Change Username on Facebook: A Simple Guide
Hi, I'm Tracy from techimperatives.net. Today, I'll guide you through the easy process of changing your username on Facebook. It's a quick task that you can complete in just a few minutes.
Why Change Your Facebook Username?
Changing your Facebook username can be essential for various reasons. It can be for privacy, branding or just because you don't like your old username anymore. Remember, your Facebook username also doubles up as the URL for your profile, thus making it even more important to get it right.
Steps to Change Facebook Username
To change your Facebook username, follow these simple steps:
1. Log in to Your Account
Open Facebook and log in to your account. Remember, this process must be done on a PC as the mobile application doesn't support this functionality.
2. Open Settings
On the top right-hand corner of your homepage, click on the drop-down arrow. From the menu that appears, select “Settings.”
3. Change Username
Under “General Account Settings,” you'll find a section named “Username.” Click on the “Edit” tab on the right side of it. Enter your new username.
Note: Choose carefully, Facebook only allows you to change your username once.
4. Save Changes
Once you've entered your new username, click on the “Save Changes” button.
Once done, your new Facebook URL will become www.facebook.com/yourusername. Share this new URL so that people can find and connect with you easily.
Remember, your Facebook username must be unique and consist of alphanumeric characters (a-z, 0-9) or periods. It should also be at least five characters long.
And that's it! You've successfully changed your username on Facebook. Remember, usernames are public and part of your public profile, so choose something you're comfortable with being open. As always, I hope this guide has been beneficial. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need any further clarification.
