  1. Hi Naveen, and welcome to Philip’s blog :)

    Good to see you here – you know I always love to see one Ahaian guest posting on another :)

    That sure was a wonderful trick, but I don’t think I would use it myself!! I guess I am pretty content with my one account on Facebook I have and the 2 fan pages. But I guess some people might need to hide or remove their last names or wish to change their identity, might use this method. Strange though that Facebook experts cannot make out the IP or the country!!

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead, both of you :)

  4. Hi Naveen

    Good to see you here and I can welcome you being already guest authored here. So welcome to the club.

    Your trick is amazing and how clearly you told the way to remove the last name from FB id is just amazing.

    Many people do feel to put their id a little shorter once the feel people face problem while tagging them as a lengthy full time and then remove from the tag third and second name just to show closeness with the person.

    Thanks a lot for sharing and thanks Phil for featuring him at your wonderful blog.

    1. Hi Mi sir,
      I am really sorry for the late response of your comment. It’s a great honor for me that a great blogger like you like my post and appreciate me. :-)

      I fully agree with your points that you described and also some people want to make their profile look different from others. I am sure for such people this trick will be much useful.

      Thanks again. Hope you will also have look at my blog page :-)
      With kind regards

  5. Hi Vaveen and Philip sir,

    Good to see Naveen at your blog Philip sir. Having last name on facebook account is no harm but if someone wants to just have his/her first name only, this is an amazing trick.

    Thanks Philip sir for having Naveen at your blog. :)

  7. Hi Naveen,
    Welcome to Phillips’ blog, and thanks for sharing this trick. Its cool and easy. At least, it would be useful for anyone who wants to create a single branded name for personal or business use.

    The most important thing is to choose a dependable VPN service to change the IP address!

  8. Hi Naveen

    Nice trick and never knew such technique existed. So thank you for sharing this tip. Even though I am OK with my name. I know some people who are not comfortable with their full names. So this is a breather for them.

    Thanks for sharing and thanks Philip for giving Naveen a chance to share his insight

  10. The first thing that popped up in my mind is that “Is it possible to remove your last name from your Facebook Account?”. Because I don’t think it is possible, that’s why I was caught off guard. Reading the step by step guide you prepared for us is very enlightening! It is very easy to follow. Using Hola will make it possible! Thanks for this very interesting piece. Spot on and attention grabbing!

  11. Hi Metz,
    Thanks for your kind words. You must at least tried once. You will able to change it. As you can see it on my profile.
    Anyways have a great week ahead.

  13. Nice info Naveen bhai.
    I never thought of removing my last name from fb account.
    Interesting for my friends.
    And I think this is because people of Indonesia have a single name only.
    Could not stop me to read once.
    Enjoy your day.

  14. Hi Vashishtha,
    Thanks for your great words for me. It means a lot.
    I was so excited when I wrote this post because it was my very first guest post.
    Have a great day :)


  15. Hello There. I discovered your weblog the use of msn. This is a really
    well written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and come back
    to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the
    post. I will certainly return.

  16. Hello, Author!
    Awesome Tips. I was just searching for this facebook tricks for a long and then just land here. Surely, This method helps me a lot to remove my last name cuz I love to have a single name.

  17. Hi Philip and Naveen,

    Interesting post and information but wouldn’t that kind of defeat the purpose of self-branding? Unless I’m missing the point completely, what purpose would this serve?

    Sure if I were Cher, Adele or some other one name celebrity, I can see the reasoning behind it.

    Great information to know and detailed. Just curious. LOL

  18. Hello, Naveen!

    Great seeing your great content on Philip’s place!

    I always had wondered how come the people had the ability to show just first name on the Facebook.

    Now, you made it very clear to me.

    I will try this out with my account and hope to get it working for me. :)

    Thanks, buddy!
