How to Change Your Facebook Page Username

Picture it: you started the XYZ Kitchen Sink Company. But you soon found that people didn't want kitchen sinks — they wanted soap dispensers instead. So naturally you started making soap dispensers, and business is great. But there's a problem; your Facebook URL and username still mention kitchen sinks.

Facebook has come to the rescue by allowing administrators to easily make a one-time-only username change for Pages that have at least 25 "likes."  To do this, simply login to your Page as an admin, click on the "Edit Page" button, and select "Update Info" from the drop down menu:

On the next screen, fourth from the top, you'll find the "Username" section. If your username has already been set, that information will be provided here. If your Page is eligible for a name change, clicking on "Change username" will take you to www.facebook.com/username, where you'll be able to implement your name change.

Facebook Goes ‘Mobile First’

Recently we told you that Facebook is developing its own smart phone, a bold leap into the mobile market for the leading social network. While there's no sign of the phone yet, the company confirmed its new 'mobile first' direction this week by releasing revamped iPhone and iPad apps. The apps aren't just faster — they make it easier to display advertising, which is crucial as Facebook users increasingly migrate to mobile devices. Facebook Chief Engineer Mike Schropfer went as far as to tell The New York Times that the entire company has been 'retooled and refocused around mobile.'

Since Facebook is now a publicly-traded company, easy access to mobile advertising constitutes a major revenue stream. But what does it mean for advertisers? We don't know yet. We're inspecting the new apps and will let you know how to maximize their features.

Facebook’s Smartphone is Coming

Facebook is developing its own smartphone, which could hit the market as soon as mid-2013.

Bloomberg reports that the leading social network is also constructing a new operating system for the device, presumably with built-in ads.

The moves are significant because although more than half of Facebook's 900 million users access the site on mobile devices, the mobile site is not configured for advertising. With Facebook now a publicly-traded company, it's essential for them to monetize mobile browsing. A branded smartphone could be the answer.

We'll keep an eye on Facebook's plans, and when mobile ads hit the scene we'll be the first to tell you how to take advantage of them.
