    I have a page with ~50k likes and I'm planning to change the name and use it for something different but in the same niche. What should I expect to happen? Does it affect the reach and how much?

    If anyone could shed some light that would be great! Thank you

    You have to be careful with that, Facebook is not being permissive with the changes of name, they will only let you change it if its a minor change.
    If you manage to change the name, you shouldnt have a problem with the organic reach.

    There is no affection in the likes and reach on your page if you changed your page name. You should focus only the Facebook is whether allowed to change your expected name accurately because if you tried to change the name as multiple times then it may be blocked.
