Change Social Accounts


Does anyone now if it is possible to change your Twitter and Facebook handler?

Our company is about to undergo a new name and brand change and we don't want to lose our existing social base / followers.

Thanks in advance.
Who is Participating?
Definitely with Twitter... Log in to Twitter on the webpage, click on your Twitter pic / icon near the top right-hand corner and go to Settings.

Under the 'Account' section you can change your Twitter handle.

For Facebook, you can change the URL in your account settings.

Go to settings --> Under General --> Username

This will also change your direct URL to your profile.

As said, yes it is possible. Just make sure you notify your followers that this is happening. With the recent growth of like farming scams in Facebook, I have seen people express concern when they suddenly start receiving posts from somewhere they don't remember following.
