Change the URL of a Facebook page

If you already have created your Facebook page for a company, an association, a music group or for personal use, you will have noticed that the web address is not very easy to remember. It might look something like https://www.facebook.com/Page-name-209278567194102/, which is either impossible to use for a marketing department or just doesn’t own.

This tutorial explains how change the web address of a Facebook page already created. The web address means the name of the internet page to connect to the Facebook page, also called URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or URI (Uniform Resource Identifier, for Uniform Resource Identifier). For example, to have a specific URL type https://www.facebook.com/nompage instead of the random numbers defined by the social network when creating the Facebook page.

This modification is done in a few clicks from the Facebook user account which is the administrator of the FB page in question. Only the administrator (or one of the administrators) of the page can modify the name or internet address of the Facebook group.
