How to merge Facebook business pages.

Yes, it can be done!

In recent weeks we have been asked a few times if it is possible to merge facebook business pages. The quick answer is YES you can, however there are a few rules you have to follow which we explain in more detail below.

OK, so the first rule is that you need to have full admininstrator access on both accounts. To check this you would need to go to – Settings > Page roles > Existing page roles.

The next bit is a little trickier, both pages need to have similar names and represent the same thing. For example if you have a page that is a childrens playgroup you could not merge it with a martial arts academy page. If you do not meet Facebookes rules on this the request will rejected.

It is also important that the physical address is also the same on both pages. To check this go to – About > Edit Page Info > Location.

Before you request a Page merge, please make sure that any campaigns you’re running aren’t pointing to the Page that will be deleted.

To merge your Pages:

Go to facebook.com/pages/merge.

Select 2 Pages you want to merge and click Continue.

Click Request Merge.

If you’re unable to merge your Pages, it means that your Pages aren’t eligible to be merged. If you see the option to request to merge your Pages, Facebook will review your request.

If your Pages can be merged, the people who like your Pages and any check-ins will be combined, but posts, photos, reviews, ratings and the username will be deleted from the Page you merge. The Page you want to keep will remain unchanged, except for the addition of people who like the Page and check-ins that were merged from the other Page. The Page you don’t want to keep will be removed from Facebook, and you won’t be able to unmerge it.
