Most people don’t know that Facebook keeps some name limits for Pages, Profiles, Groups, Friends, Events, etc.
Just like we can’t change Facebook profile name after 5 times, we cant change our profile username more than 1 time, we cant change a Facebook page name after 200 Likes, we cant change Facebook group name after reaching 250 members, we cant add more than 5000 friends to our Facebook profile, and it. Impossible to change the name of an event if it has more than 5,000 people invited.
These days, many people are keeping Facebook Account Names in Different stylish Fonts, But Facebook is Banning the Accounts using those types of stylish fonts, fake names.
