You may not even realize that you can change your Facebook page name. It’s a really simple yet powerful action you can take to protect your brand, get more easily found in search, and it’s faster to type.

- It presents a great opportunity for businesses to consider incorporating generic keywords for increased search engine optimization (SEO).
- Owning your digital name and URL is a good idea in every location that your customers are.
