Username is a unique word or combination of words and numbers through which anyone can access your Facebook profile or timeline easily. You can also use it instead of Email Address to log into your account. It makes it easier for us to provide others direct link of our profile. In Geek community, your user-name tells much about you. On Facebook, suppose your username is theTechday then your Timeline can be easily accessed by visit www.facebook.com/theTechday.

So what the heck this article is all about ? Facebook allows you to change username only a fixed number of times. Normally people aren’t able to change it after 3 tries. I won’t discuss why one would change it even for fourth time(some people are crazy, respect them) but I will here share with you all a simple trick to change username unlimited times.
Follow the given steps on your computer to change Facebook profile username after limit has been reached –
Step 1: Open www.facebook.com/pages/create/ in your browser and create a Page with any name under category Cause or Community
Step 2: Skip all the four Set Up steps by clicking Skip button until Page opens
Step 3: In top-right-corner, click on Edit Page button and then click on Update Page info
Step 4: Under Page Info, note down “Facebook Page ID” shown in the bottom
Step 5: Now open www.facebook.com/username?from_page=YOUR_PAGE_ID_HERE
Replace YOUR_PAGE_ID_HERE with actual 15-digit Page ID which you noted in step 4
Step 6: “Create your Facebook web address” page will appear, now in “Facebook Web Address:” section enter your current Username which you want to change and click on Check Availability button
Step 7: A message reading – “XYZ is currently set as the username for your Timeline. Do you want to change it to be the username for this Page? You may only change this once.” will appear on your screen. Here XYZ is an example, but your actual user-name will appear in place of it when you will perform this trick.
Step 8: Click on Transfer Username option. Now the username of your profile have got removed from your profile
Step 9: Now visit www.facebook.com/settings?tab=account§ion=username&view. You will notice that your profile don’t have any username now and you can set any name you want for your Timeline
