Facebook has become an integral part of everyone’s lives due to the phenomenon called social networking. One can argue that the biggest thing to happen to social media and social networking is Facebook, and they would be right. Whats more is that the company has cemented its feet into the social scene further after the recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it also one of the most rounded out platforms on the internet and a content creator’s paradise.
The main factor that identifies you from millions of users on Facebook, is you name. Some people fall victim to the multiple matching names problem and it becomes very difficult for other people to contact the right account. To counter this, many users, specially content creators and influencers tend to assign a unique name to their account, to make it stand out among the rest.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to change your name on Facebook.
Step 1. Open the web browser on your PC/Laptop.
Step 2. In the URL bar, type in www.facebook.com.
