Change Your Name in Facebook on Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to change your name on Facebook when using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen.
On the home screen we need to find the Facebook tile. It has a blue background. In the bottom right-hand corner of the tile is the Facebook icon, which is a white square with a blue "f" inside.
Press down on the Facebook tile, and it will open up the application.
We now need the icon located on the far right-hand side of the screen in the white bar. There are three gray horizontal lines.
Pressing down on that icon will open the "More" menu.
Now, we need the "Settings" option, so press down on that word.
On the "Settings" menu, we want the option at the top that says "Privacy settings".
Press down on that section to open a new menu.
We want the first option at the top that says "General", so press down on that section.
On the next screen, we want the first option that says "Name". Press down on that section.
Then we'll have the opportunity to change our name in Facebook.
However, it is important for us to first read the information provided toward the middle and lower part of the screen. It says, "Please note - You won't be able to change your name within the next 60 days. Make sure not to add any unusual capitalization, punctuation, characters or random words. As we can see, we can only change our name once every 60 days, so make sure to choose the correct name and not one we regret or that has any mistakes.
Where it says "First Name", press down that box to bring up the keyboard. Then type in the first name. In our example, we've edited the name by changing "Tom" to "Tommy".
Add a "Middle Name" if desired by pressing on the box below that option.
We can change the "Last Name" as well by pressing down on that section. In our demonstration, we changed the last name of "Howl" to "How" by taking away the "l".
If we scroll down, we'll see a blue bar that says "Review Change".
Press down on that option, and it will give us a chance to choose how we want our name to appear. It says, "Choose how your name will appear on your profile."
We can see that there is a blue circle with a white check mark across from the first option, "Tommy How". In order to change this, we can press down on the other circle. We'll just leave it as the first option.
A message toward the middle of the screen says, "Please note - You won't be able to change your name within the next 60 days." Then it says "To save this setting, please enter your Facebook password."
After entering our "password", we can press down on the blue bar where it says "Save Changes".
That will save those changes, and we can see our new "Name" at the top of the screen.
