Now Official: Change Misspelled Facebook Fan Page Name

Now Official: Change Misspelled Facebook Fan Page Name

Last time when we talked about How to change misspelled Facebook page name, it was a post where we were trying to find a solution to misspelled Facebook name. I talked about my WordPress free setup page which was initially misspelled and there was no way to change the name.

Finally Facebook added this feature to change the name of Misspelled facebook fan page name. Though there is a small limitation which is: your fan page should not have more than 100 members. This is to prevent the buying and selling of fan pages.

How to change Misspelled name?

In order to change the misspelled name, go to manage Facebook pages page. Click on edit page in front of page whose name you wish to change. Make sure current no. of fans should not be more than 100. In case if you have more than 100 fans, delete few fans.

Do let us know if you have any Facebook page which is misspelled ? Go ahead and change the name, but don’t forget if you have more than 100 fans, you can’t change the name.

    I think this option was not there few months back. I had to delete and create new page because of name. I had to change from Annanta to Designer’s Digest.

      Geet you should get your Fan page from the very first day…. It’s more like feed subscription offer..which you should add from 1st day of your blog..!!

    You should know though, that this is only for pages with a couple fans :) I think once you have more than 200-ish, Facebook doesnt allow you to change the name. Not yet atleast.

      Clinton limit is maximum of 100 fans. The page which I mentioned above had 180 fans and I removed 80 fans to lower down the no. t0 100…
      It’s again a good practice as if facebook will allow people to change name for pages with huge fans, people might try to game the system by selling pages..
      That’s the reason you can set your custom username just once!!
      Thanks for dropping by and for your comment.

        @Harsh: Yes Harsh i agree with you, this is really good facebook is allowing users to change name for pages who has limit of maximum 100 fans otherwise people will start selling fan pages, like some people are selling facebook profiles who has more than 3000 friends etc..
