Good news page admins, Facebook has changed the settings on to change the categories on your Facebook Business Page (hooray!).
Unusually, the Facebook Help page is still stating that you're not able to update your Page categories as shown in the image below:
But fear not, we'll show you how in 3 easy steps!
1. Log into Facebook and go onto your Page. You'll see something like this at the top of your page:
2. Using the drop down menus you can select the relevant categories.
3. Click on 'Update Category' button.
Ta-da, you have just updated your Facebook Page category!
If you ever need to change your category again then you are able to do so by clicking on the Edit Page button in the top left hand corner. Make sure that the 'Basic Information' tab is highlighted in the left hand column and from here you are able to amend your categories by using the drop down menus as shown below:
Click on the 'Save Changes' button.
And that's all folks!
I'm glad that Facebook has finally updated this as it would be incredibly frustrating if a Page was set up under the wrong category, only to find out later that you weren't able to change it. Just out of pure nosiness, what other features would you like to see Facebook update? let me know below.
