When you change the username for your Facebook page, your Facebook page URL also changes. In the past, one could change Facebook page username on mobile as easily as can be done on a desktop. However, with recent changes in the design of Facebook, you can no longer do that.
The official Facebook help page says that you have to log in on a computer to change the username for your Facebook page. However, you can still change the username for a Facebook page on your mobile.
There can be multiple reasons why you would want to change your page’s username. For instance, you may have changed the name of your page, thus, a new username would be more suitable.
You may want to change the username for the page to reflect the change in your business or nature or type of the page occurred since you created the page. Or you haven’t had one at all so you just want to create a new username. Regardless, this post should be useful for you if want to either create or change Facebook page username on the fly.
The only difference is you will find an empty username if you have not chosen one already. Also, you will need to have 25 likes on your page before being able to create a unique username for your page. Therefore, you may want to invite your friends to like your page in order to achieve that threshold.
Please bear in mind that in order to create or change the Facebook page username, you must have the Admin privileges. If you are already not one, ask the owner or admin to add you as an admin of the page.
