    Okay, so FaceBook is driving me crazy!

    I had a profile with over 3,000 friends and decided to turn it into a page.

    BUT

    when I was picking a category, i chose "Community Organisation" then entered the name of the page i wanted which was different to my profile name and so facebook wouldn't let me because the "Name of the page is not the same or similar to the profile" (or words to that effect).

    Then when I tried again it told me my account is restricted for a couple of days.

    So, i tried to log on a couple of hours later and it's asking me to either:

    - Enter a code sent to the mobile number i verified the account with (which i don't have)

    - OR log in using a computer i recently used to enter the account, but because i cleared my cache, history, cookies etcc... and my IP address has changed it can't verify the computer.


    Basically, this account can no longer be used, it's useless.

    but for future reference, how can I use a page name that I want instead of having to use my profile name?


    for example,

    Profile name: Amy Whight

    Page Name: Funny cat Videos.


    It won't let me do this!

    Please Help!

    Thank You,

    This is the dumbest post I've ever seen.

    Can you not read instructions? It says use same or similar page name as your profile name.

    If profile name is: "Amy Whight" then your page name also has to be "Amy Whight" or "Amy Whights"

    If you want to change the name of the page, you first need to change your profile name and make it match the page name. Or once converted, you can try to rename the page quickly before all of the likes get added to the page.

    if i want to change "Amy Whight's" profile into a "funny cat videos" page, I've got to name the profile "funny cat videos" as you said.

    facebook won't let me do that!

    it knows that's not a real name.

    i don't think there is a way around this.
