If you have multiple Facebook pages, but for the same purpose, Facebook allows you to merge them. However, it’s only possible if both pages have the same name, run by the same admin.
When you merge your pages, you will get to keep one account while having to delete the other one permanently. As for the likes, followers, and check-ins, they might add up if you had a different audience on the pages. However, merging pages is not something trivial, as you won’t be able to undo it, so make sure you want to do this.
Note: Since all your content and settings will get deleted, make sure to create a backup file and download all the important information.
You can merge Facebook pages either by toggling through your account’s settings or directly visiting the merging site.
Using the Facebook Page Merging Site
- Go to the Facebook Page Merge site for a normal page and Business Page Merge site if the pages are on Business Manager.
- Enter your email and password to log into your Facebook profile.
- Under the “Choose the two pages that you would like to merge,” write the name of one page on the first box and another page on the next. Make sure you write the name of the page that you don’t mind getting deleted at the beginning.
- Click on Continue at the bottom of the screen.
- A popup will appear showing which page will be preserved and which will get deleted.
- Click on the Submit button.
- Once the Page gets merged, you will receive a message. Click OK.
Using Facebook Settings

- Click on your Profile Picture on the top right and Select the Settings and Privacy option.
- Click on the Settings option.
- Select the New Page Experience option on the left menu.
