How to Merge Two Facebook Pages: A Step-by-Step Guide

Merging two Facebook pages is an administrative function that allows you to combine two pages with similar names and content into one. This action transfers the likes and check-ins from one page to another, while the page you decide to merge will be removed. It’s a way to streamline your social media efforts, manage your online brand, and consolidate your audience.

Why Would You Need To Merge Pages?

There could be multiple reasons why you'd want to merge Facebook pages. Some common scenarios include:

Rebranding: If your business has undergone a rebranding, you may want to combine an old page with a new one that aligns better with your current branding.

Duplicate Pages: Sometimes, duplicate pages are created by accident or by well-intentioned fans. Merging helps to unite your audience in one place.

Acquisition: If you've acquired another business or page, merging allows you to bring both audiences together.

"Whether you are rebranding or consolidating duplicate pages, merging is a functional way to unite your audience."

What Pages Can Be Merged

To merge pages, there are some criteria that must be met:

Similar Names: The pages should have similar names and represent the same thing.

Same Address: If they have physical locations, the addresses must be the same.

Admin Rights: You must be an admin on both pages you intend to merge.

"Ensure you meet all the criteria such as similar names, same address, and admin rights before proceeding with the merge."

What Pages Can't Be Merged

Pages that cannot be merged include:

Pages that don't represent the same thing or entity.

Pages where you don’t have admin rights.

Pages that don't have similar names or content.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Backup Important Content

Before merging, make sure to back up any important posts, reviews, or other content, as they will be lost from the page you decide to merge.

Step 2: Navigate to 'Merge Pages'

Go to the page with the most likes. This is the one you'll want to keep.

Click on 'Settings' at the top of your Page.

Click 'Merge Pages' in the left column.

Step 3: Select the Page to Merge

From the dropdown menu, select the page that you would like to merge into your primary page and click ‘Merge’.

"Remember, the page you're merging will lose all content, posts, images etc."

Troubleshooting Potential Issues

Merge Option Not Available: Make sure you're an admin on both pages.

Merge Failed: Double-check that the pages meet all the criteria for merging.
