As you may know, Facebook allows users to choose a "vanity URL," allowing easy linking to one's profile. However, once set, this URL cannot be changed and this was done for security reasons, understandably.

I have a friend whose now ex-partner set the URL to be "herfirstname.hislastname" without her permission. She tried to change it after this, but to no avail.

Has anyone successfully contacted Facebook and got them to either disable the name and revert back to an ID or change the name to another?

    Has she actually tried contacting Facebook yet? – ChrisF May 29 '11 at 23:22
  • She's been waiting more than a week for a reply. – user11187 May 30 '11 at 13:30

    What form did she use to contact? – phwd Sep 23 '11 at 14:44
  • Is there any progress on this? – phwd Jan 25 '12 at 8:41

    I was told that it's Facebook policy to not allow the changing of URLs after they have been changed. I was told that she should delete and recreate her account. Very inconvenient. – user11187 Jan 25 '12 at 21:10

There is no direct process of doing this but there is a little hacky method to do this
