Hey Harsh ! Thanks for Input. Updated.

Jaydip, I have a similar post to this coming. You will want to let people know that to GET to these pages they go here:  and then under each page where it says “Edit Page” … it USED to go to the old back end manager but now goes to the new pages you just did a screenshot of… The addresses look like these: Good screenshots but gotta tell people how to get there :)

One more thing worth noting is that the re-name is only available to pages with not too many fans. We don’t know where the cutoff is but high fan-volume pages are not changeable. For example, my my Syndication Alliance page has about 400 and is not changeable but my recently started page that has 15 is changeable.


Jaydip October 26, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Hi Kimberly,

Thanks for insight. The same problem with me too. I had tried for one page which is having 75  / one is having 34 It’s showing option there but not in a big number pages. I guess cut off line might be less then 100.


Harsh Agrawal October 26, 2010 at 2:29 pm

So we can remove fans in this case to cut down the number..?
I have one page with 180 fans and page is renamed wrong…So that’s the only option which I can think of at this moment..!!

Hahahhahhaa. …..

I was thinking on the same Direction for one of my page which is having 160 around fans. Are you talking about WordPressFreeSetup ?? You already made new page for that.

To just try, you can do that but I am not sure you will be get proper result or not. There no authentic updates about from FB till now or I am not able to locate that.

Harsh given the data that’s coming in, I’m going to speculate that what you’re trying to do won’t work … but I don’t know if it’s been tried so might be interesting. The problem is that if it’s going to work its going to happen at a very very low number, and heck at that point might as well just re-make the page!


Vinay October 26, 2010 at 10:11 pm

Had read this article before buddy. You could have added clear image. Thanks for the update :)

After more study today it appears that pages created after a certain date have much more flexibility in changing page names than older pages though. So a newer page with a bunch of fans is much more likely to be able to change names than an older page. Its almost as if the field simply isnt available to a page over 25 fans if its over… maybe 6 months? old. I’m not sure about that month cut off but something like that.

Hi ! Mr. Jaydip
Thanks for share nice information, in this post u shows 2 screens – Screen-A  & Screen-B.
You provide solution for  Screen-A but not for Screen-B.
Can you Please  provide me solution for Screen-B ?


Jaydip October 27, 2010 at 11:51 am

Hey Taufik,

Well in that case only one way is that you have to reduce fans make them less then 100. I know it sounds funny or odd but that is the only way out as of now. BTW I had update the same in post too. Read last para and check the link of Official FB Fanpage guide.


Taufik Mansuri October 27, 2010 at 11:58 am

Thanks for update in this post about Screen- B.
but  one more question 
if i have  more than thousands  fans then what can i do ? it  may be hurts to my fans  &  i can’t do this.  can u please provide me any other suggestion for the same ?


Harsh Agrawal October 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Taufik you can’t do this for pages with more than 100 Fans…

It is not possible as of now. Let Facebook give some solution for that.
