Facebook logo

There may come a time when you want to change your Facebook Username, which is also the same as your Timeline Address. For example, you may have first joined Facebook when you were just a “dumb kid,” so your address is, but now that you’re older and a smart adult, you want to change your address. Here’s how you can do it.

  1. From the top right corner of the Facebook screen, click the down arrow from the drop-down menu. From the menu, click Settings.
  2. Facebook Settings

  3. From General Account Settings, you’ll see your Username/Timeline Address listed second. Click the Edit link on the right side.
  4. Facebook General Account Settings

  5. From the Username menu, change the value in the Username field, enter your Facebook password in the Password field, and click the Save Changes button. NOTE: You can only change your username once, so choose carefully.
  6. Facebook Username
