No More Struggle – Merging Your Facebook Pages Has Never Been Easier!

You’ve spent a lot of time and effort building your business on Facebook and boosting your social media presence via Facebook Advertising and Social Media Marketing. You have a personal profile and maybe even multiple business pages. You’ve been trying to merge two or more pages together for more efficiency, but haven’t gotten anywhere.

You can’t merge Facebook pages if you’re not an admin of the page you want to merge.

In order to merge pages, you need to be the admin of the page that you are merging into or have been designated as an “admin” on the other page. If you don’t have access to either page, then it’s not possible for you to combine them.

If your personal profile is connected to a brand account, then that would make up one instance where it may seem like it should work but won’t. A personal profile cannot be merged with any other type of Facebook business page. However, if a company has more than one brand account (such as many businesses do), then this can cause confusion when trying to merge two different brands together under one unified banner because it might seem like they should just “merge” together automatically.

Make sure you have the right to use the name of the page you want to merge with.

Before you begin this process, make sure you have the rights to use the name of the page you want to merge with. If a personal profile and an admin are both listed as owners of a page, then only one person can be an admin at any given time.

You’ll also need to make sure that you’re an administrator of both pages before proceeding. If one or more admins aren’t present on either (or both) pages, then they won’t appear as options for merging in Facebook’s interface.

Facebook gives clear guidelines on things they won’t allow, but they don’t do a lot of explaining on why it’s taking so long.

Facebook has a lot of users, and they’re all using it in different ways. Some people want to use Facebook as their personal website while others want to use it to connect with their friends and family. Because of this diversity in how people use the platform, Facebook doesn’t have enough resources available at any given time to answer all questions about why something is taking so long or what is allowed on the platform.

What should you do before merging two Facebook pages?

The merger itself appears to be simple. On the other hand, the preparations leading up to the actual merger are a minefield. Begin planning at least one week ahead of time. If you want everything to go well, it’s never too early to start.

Taking control of your pages

One of the first things Facebook warns you about is the advertisements you’re running for the now-defunct Page. Make sure the page you’re going to remove doesn’t have any active campaigns targeting it.

Make a list of any “places” pages that have been developed for your company. I recommend searching on both the mobile and desktop versions of Facebook, as the results may change. After you’ve compiled your list, add the number of check-ins, and likes for each page, and then claim all the “places” pages on it. These pages must be claimed one by one.

The Merge

After you’ve claimed all these pages, start combining them into one. You don’t have to worry about this because these sites contain little to no content. Customers’ prior check-ins at your location are what you require from them.

You now have two business pages: one for the primary business and one for the one you’re merging. Change the name of the page you’re merging to the same as the main page’s name (if possible). To ensure that Facebook approves the merger, the pages’ names should be as similar as feasible. Experts advise that you retain a variety of profile photographs. It will assist you in distinguishing the pages during the merging.

“About” Section

Now it’s time to move on to the “about” portion of the website. This section is one of the most important parts of your website. The information on each site should be comparable, just like the names of the pages. Pay specific attention to the website, phone number, and location (if applicable) as well as the description.

It’s worth noting that you may be losing all the material from the page you’re merging. Hence, it is advisable to download any information that you wish to keep. Don’t be concerned about the page you’ll maintain. It will continue to be the same. Likes and check-ins are likely to increase slightly, but they are unlikely to double, given some individuals loved both pages.
