Your Page's category helps people understand what your Page is about. When you change the category of your Page, the new category will be visible on your Page and next to your Page's name when people search for your Page.

The Community Page label is a way to show that your Page is about an organization, celebrity or topic but doesn't officially represent it. A label will appear below a community Page's name identifying it as a community Page about a particular topic. For example, a community-created Page about Facebook would have the subtitle Community Page about Facebook. You can edit or remove this label.

Your Page appears to be related to an authentic Facebook Page managed by an official representative of that business, brand or organization. It may also be about a general topic that can't have an official representative, like photography or swimming. In an effort to connect people to the authentic entities they want to like and follow, we've added a link to the authentic Page your community Page is about.

Page Names

Only authorized representatives can manage a Page for a brand, place, organization or public figure. Page names must accurately reflect Page content.

Page names can't include:

  • Abusive terms: Page names may not contain terms or phrases that may be abusive.
  • Improper capitalization: Page names must use proper, grammatically correct capitalization.
  • Symbols: Page names may not include symbols, such as ! or ® or TM. They must include logical, correct punctuation. Repeated and unnecessary punctuation is not permitted.
  • Lengthy descriptions: Page names may not be excessively long and may not include taglines or superfluous descriptions. This information can be added to the About section of your Page.
  • Variations of "Facebook": Page names may not contain any variation of the word "Facebook." See the Brand Permissions Center for more information.
  • Generic location names: Pages with generic location names are not allowed to have managers. We require Pages to be managed by official representatives of the topic they're about, and no one person can singly represent a geographic location.
  • Misleading words: If your Page isn't the official Page of a brand, place, organization or public figure, your Page name can't mislead others into thinking it's an official Page or that it's managed by an authorized representative.

Other things to keep in mind:

  • Qualifiers: You may use qualifiers in your Page name, but you may not have more than 2 words inside of parentheses. You can't use qualifiers to indicate location or use the word "official" in your Page's name, even if you're an official representative.
  • Dates: You shouldn’t include a specific date or year for Pages that represent reoccurring events, since you won’t be able to update the date (ex: Facebook Conference 2013).
  • Generic words: Your Page name shouldn't consist solely of generic words (ex: “pizza”). We require Pages to be managed by official representatives of the topic they're about, and no one person can singly represent a generic object.
  • Legal rights: Page names may not violate someone's rights.

We suggest adding information such as your Page's address and tagline to the About section of your Page.

Make sure your Page name meets these guidelines and create your Page.

If less than 200 people like your Page, and you're a manager or content creator, you can change the name of your Page:

  1. From the top of your Page, click Edit Page
  2. Select Update Page Info
  3. Click Name and enter a new name
  4. Click Save Changes

If 200 or more people like your Page, and you're a manager, you may be able to submit a request to change your Page's name:

  1. From the top of your Page, click Edit Page
  2. Select Update Page Info
  3. Click Name and click Request Change
  4. Fill out the form and click Send

Keep in mind that if 200 or more people like your Page, you can only change your Page's name once. If your request is approved, you won't be able to change your Page name again. If you don't see the option to submit a request, it might mean that someone else who works on your Page has submitted a request in the past.

Note: Changing your Page's name will not affect its username.

No. Pages with generic location names like "New York," "Ontario" and "Switzerland" are not allowed to have managers.

However, you can manage a Page for an organization that represents a geographic location. For example, "New York City – Mayor's Office," "Lok Sabha – Parliament of India" and "Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain" are acceptable Page names. You may also use a Page name that's different from the name of the organization as long as the name accurately reflects what the Page is about (ex: "Tourism Ireland" can have a Page named "Discover Ireland").
