Why you might want to change your Facebook business page username
If you’re no longer using your personal profile to promote your business, you might want to change your Facebook business page username. Your username is what appears in the URL for your page (facebook.com/yourusername), and it’s also what people see when they search for your page on Facebook.
An easy way to create a username for your page is to use your business name. For example, if your business is called “Widget Company,” you could try “widgetcompany” or “widgetco” as your username. Keep in mind that usernames must be at least five characters long and can only contain alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) and periods.

What to consider before changing your Facebook business page username
Before you change your Facebook business page username, there are a few things you should take into consideration:
-Your current username and URL
-The number of likes your page has
-Your page’s SEO
Your current username and URL:
If you change your Facebook business page username, your current URL will also change. If you have likes on your page, and people have saved your URL somewhere, they will no longer be able to find your page if you change the URL.
The number of likes your page has:
The more likes your page has, the harder it is to change your username without losing some of those likes. Once you’ve changed your username, anyone who previously saved your old URL will no longer be able to find your page. This could lead to a decrease in likes.
Your page’s SEO:
If you’re trying to increase the SEO of your Facebook business page, changing the username could have a negative effect. Any links pointing to your old URL will no longer work, and it could take some time for search engines to index your new URL.
How changing your Facebook business page username can affect your page
If you change your username, it will change the URL of your Facebook business page. Your followers will still be able to find you, but any links that you have shared with them previously will no longer work. In addition, any shortcuts or bookmarks that your followers have saved for your page will also no longer work. If you change your username, we strongly recommend that you update any links or shortcuts that point to your page so that your followers can continue to find you.
Why you shouldn’t change your Facebook business page username too often
Facebook page username changes are not without drawbacks. If you have a widely recognizedbrand, changing your username could result in losing some of your hard-earned search engine real estate and confusing your current fans.
