Wish You Could Change the Name of Your Nonprofit’s Facebook Page? Now You Can
There’s a sixth upgrade I want to add to the recent blog post Five Recent Upgrades That Nonprofits Need to Know About – you can now request to change the name of your nonprofit’s Facebook Page by visiting:
Edit Page > Update Info > Basic Information > Name > Request Change:
Until recently, you could only change your Page name if your Page had 200 fans or less through a do-it-yourself method in the Admin Panel, but now their is an official process for Pages with 201 fans or more. That said, for the name change request to be approved, you must absolutely be 100% compliant with Facebook’s Terms of Service for Pages. If not, then you risk getting your Page deleted entirely for being in violation of their TOS by bringing your non-compliant Page to the attention of Facebook staff. Read the TOS very carefully. Please note that you will also have to submit documentation confirming the legality of your new name. That does not include logos, websites, and business cards, rather documentation such as a utility or phone bill.
