    Company Rebranding - Facebook Page?


    Hi, one of my client's is re-branding its company and would be changing their company name
    and website. Should I delete the old facebook page and create a new one with the new name or
    change the company name and username in the exiting facebook page?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think you can change the username, just the company name. You can create a new FB page and then merge the old with the new.

    What has been my experience with Facebook and creating pages is that 2 main things determine what rank and keyword the page if at all shows up in Google.

    1. Like quantity especially if others are competing for the key term
    2. the name in the URL extension


    So if they have changed their brand, unless they were strategically targeting a key phrase within the url extensions name I think you should totally change it. You can get more likes pretty easily and retrieve quite a few from the previous property upon creating the new one.
