How to merge two duplicate Facebook pages

There are several reasons people end up with more than one Facebook page. If the two pages serve precisely the same purpose, it is possible to merge them, leaving you with one page without losing information such as check-ins.  

The Rules About Merging Pages

Facebook does provide the option to merge two pages but has rules to help reduce errors. To merge pages:

  • You must be the admin of both of them. For most users, that means you set up the page initially. 
  • The names of the pages must be similar. If they are personal pages, they must have the same person’s name. If they are business pages, they must have similar business names. For example, a page for John Q. Public could not merge with one for Sally Answers. One named John Public might, though. If you want to join, you can request to change the name of one of the pages to make them identical. 
  • The pages must have identical locations. 

If all those things are true, you can merge the Facebook pages. 

What Happens When You Merge Pages

When you merge the pages, you lose one of them. The only things that merge from the second page are page likes and check-ins. If that stuff isn’t essential to you, you can just delete the second account. Merging might be critical, though, for business pages where likes matter. 

What won’t merge from the second page is:

  • Photos
  • Reviews
  • Ratings
  • Usernames
  • Posts

So, merging isn’t the convergence of the two pages. The only thing that saves from the second page is likes and check-ins. The surviving page will not change significantly. 

You cannot reverse the merge, either. So consider carefully if this is the best option for the two pages. 

How To Merge Two Facebook Pages

The steps to merge two Facebook pages are simple:

  • Facebook has a unique link for merging pages. If you need to find it on your Facebook page, go to the address screen at the top and type in “facebook.com/pages/merge.” If you are merging business pages, type “busines.facebook.com/pages/merge.”
  • When the link comes up, the names of the pages will appear if you can merge them. You click on the pages you want to merge.
  • At the bottom of the page is a blue “Continue” button. Click on that once you are ready. 

Facebook will ask you to confirm that you want to merge the two pages. Once you are sure you want to do the merge, you confirm by clicking on “Request Merge.” 

Once the pages become one, you will get a notification that the likes from the removed page are not added to the ones you keep.
