Merge Duplicate Facebook Pages

Written by Shannon Vogel on . Posted in Facebook

If you have more than one Facebook page and you’d like to combine them, Facebook has now made it easier than ever to do this!

Before you get started:

  • You can only request a merge if you’re an admin for both Pages.
  • The Pages you merge must represent the same thing and have similar names. If you try to merge Pages that aren’t similar, the Pages may be permanently unpublished.
  • Merging Pages can’t be undone once you’ve started the process.

Follow these easy steps:

  1. Make the address the same on both pages. (*very important)
  2. Make sure the names of the pages are similar.
  3. Go to this link: facebook.com/pages/merge
  4. Select the pages in the Dropdown menu
  5. Click Request Merge.
Things to remember:
  • People who like the duplicate Page will be informed of the merge. This may take a few days to complete.
  • Content from the merged Page, such as posts, photos and the username, will be deleted during the merge. Learn how to download and save your Page content
  • Likes and check-ins from both Pages will be combined and shown on the remaining Page.

Fine print:

  • 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, we’ll 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.
Business Manager Users:
If your Pages are on Business Manager, you can go to business.facebook.com/pages/merge to merge them.
