There are tons of reasons you may want to update the name of a Facebook page, from correcting a typo, to adjusting the topic to simply giving it a fresh look. We’ve put together this step-by-step guide to show you how to do it.
There are two types of Facebook pages – Classic pages and New pages.
The main difference here is the roles you’ll have. If you’re running a Classic page, you have to be an admin to change the name, whereas if you’re using the New page experience, you’ll need Facebook access (task access won’t be enough).

What you’ll need:
- A Facebook page with a name you want to change
- Admin rights to that page
The Short Version
