Unlike any other social networking site Facebook allows users to change their display names so that they can change their identities if required. Although this configuration is never required by an authentic user during the entire lifetime of his account however in many cases where security becomes a concern users can use this feature to hide their real identities and portray the fake ones for illegal purposes. This feature is also quite beneficial for the organizations who because of any reason want to change their names. There are certain restrictions and limitations while renaming the display name of Facebook account and also you can rename your account only for limited number of times.
