Merge duplicate Facebook Pages

How to merge Facebook Pages (two existing, duplicate pages)

Do you happen to have two duplicate Facebook Pages? Instead of trying to maintain both pages or get fans to move from one Facebook Page to another (a task in itself), the best way to consolidate both pages is to learn how to merge facebook pages. 

Merge Facebook Pages

Why merge Facebook Pages?

Learning how to merge Facebook Pages is an essential task that anyone with a Facebook Page needs to learn how to do.  Not only does merging a Facebook Page help you delete a page you accidentally deleted, but it can also benefit your customers.

When you merge Facebook Pages, you make it easier for your customers to find you! This is because now, you don’t have to worry about customers liking the wrong Facebook Page. Instead, they’ll find just your one Facebook Page when they search for your business.

How to merge Facebook Pages (two existing, duplicate Facebook pages)

  1. Go to the Page with the most likes (this is the one you want to keep)
  2. From the top of your Page, click “Edit Page”
  3. From the dropdown, select “Update Info”
  4. From the left sidebar, select “Resources”
  5. If you are an Admin on two pages with similar names, you will see “Merge duplicate Pages” – click it.
  6. A dialog box will appear, showing you pages that you Admin that qualify to be merged.

Note: If the Facebook pages you are trying to merge have a location, both pages must have the same address before you can merge them.

Also remember, just because you merge Facebook Pages, this will not remove it from search results right away. It can take a few days or a few weeks for it to be totally removed from search

Now that you know how to merge Facebook Pages together, it’s time to focus your energy on engaging fans rather than trying to get them to like the right page.

    Do you happen to know if there is a way to do this with Facebook events too?

      I wish there were. Your best bet is to contact Facebook – they would have to do something on their backend.

    What name will the merged Facebook page take on? The page with the more likes?

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      Kandice, it will take on the name of the page you merge the page into.

      For example, if the page I am merging from was called Page A and I am merging it into Page B, the page name will end up being Page B.

    Hi!
    I kinda have a problem, a museum I volunteer for has a (personal) profile and a page (the name is in english but all it`s content it`s in my native language – romanian).
    For some time, we want to merge the profile with the page, and change the name of the page into romanian.
    I am thinking that now, i could transform the profile into a page with the name in romanian and after that try to merge the two pages together.
    The two pages would end up with names like: “muzeul de arta” and “the art museum”

    Do you think this will qualify for the merge option?
    Thank you! 🙂

    Ok. Here is the problem. A current page I manage has 273 likes. The organization just changed names. Everything expect the name stayed the same. So, I can’t change the organization name, so I thought, “Fine. I will merge the old page with a brand new page with the right name.” Wrong. It does not matter how I try to do it, it always wants to take the old page with 273 likes over the new page (with no likes). It won’t merge old into new!
