Frustrated because you can’t figure out just where is the “Create album” button that allows you to create a new photo album on Facebook? That’s because Facebook seems to have ‘helpfully’ removed the “Create a photo album” button, without replacing it with any clear instructions. Then, once you figure out that to create a photo album on Facebook you just have to upload some photos, just how do you change the name of the album from the default “Untitled Album” and rename the photo album to what you want the title to be? For that matter, how do you rename existing photo albums on Facebook? Like so many other things, it’s easy, once you know how. Here’s how.

Here’s the thing – it’s actually right under your nose, but with no pointers or instructions, it’s really easy to miss. So here is a pictorial to make it easy not to miss:


To change an album name on Facebook, go to the album whose name you wish to change. If you are anything like us, you have plenty of albums that are named “Untitled Album”, or something similar:

facebook-untitled-album

 

Select the album you wish to rename, and then click on “Edit Album” at the top of the page:

Which brings you to this screen:

 

facebook-rename-photo-album-edit-screen

 

 

Now here’s the thing – naturally you will click on where it says “Untitled Album”, and you would expect that you would be able to edit it. But when you click on it, even though you get a box and a flashing cursor, the “Untitled Album” remains, and you can’t delete it, can’t space over it, can’t, seemingly, do anything to get rid of the “Untitled Album”!

But as it turns out, there is one thing you can do: start typing. This will then erase the current ‘title’, replacing it with whatever you type:

 

facebook-rename-album-new-name

 

So what if you want to create a new photo album? Here’s how you do that, and how you name it:

 

First, you upload some photos (this is where Facebook removed the ‘Create Album’ button and you now just use the “Add Photos” button):

 

facebook-add-photos

 

The act of uploading photos actually automatically sets you up to create a new album:

 

facebook-create-new-photo-album

 

From there, the process is the same – you will see the same “Untitled Album”, and when you click on it, you can just start typing:

 

facebook-rename-new-album

 

And that’s how you rename a Facebook photo album (and how you create a new photo album on Facebook).
