I was wondering is there any chance to change my page name? Nikunj, please let me know if this possible because i recently changed my company’s name and would like to change my fan page name too…
Sorry to inform you but you cant change the fan page name one its selected, you will need to create new fan-page or continue with the old one.
Thats bad, Hope Facebook may come-up with some new policies regarding this…
