In my previous post, I explained how to find and cancel pending sent friend requests. In this post, I will talk about how to merge pages or multiple pages. When I started the blog, the name of my blog was blogeasypcsoft.com. But the name did not suit my passion. Therefore, I purchased a new domain in 8 months, and my old blog shifted to the new domain pcmobitech.com. When I shifted my blog to pcmobitech.com, most of my social media page names were still on blogeasypcsoft. I changed the name of the Facebook page, but the page URL remained blogeasypcsoft, which did not match the name of the website.
I tried to change the URL of the page, but a page URL can only change once. Then I created a new page, and after some time, when the page had received some likes, I attempted to change the URL of the page name. However, my old page already had 148 likes. So I tried to merge the old page with the new one, but the error persisted. After persistent efforts, I successfully merged my Facebook pages. Now, my new Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pcmobitech has a total of 168 page likes. Yuppie! Today, I am sharing this process with you.
Before the merge page, you will need to know:
- All likes of your Pages and any check-ins will be combined into your page that you want to keep.
- 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.
- Posts, photos, reviews, ratings and the username will be deleted from the Page you merge.
- The Page you merge will be removed, and you can’t undo this merged process.
Before doing merge comply your both pages on following points:
- First, make sure the pages you are going to merge must have same Page admin and if you have recently made changes to page admin then make sure page admin must be a week old otherwise your pages cannot be merged.
- Make sure your both Pages that you’re going to merge represent the similar name and thing. Before you could merge different name pages but in new Facebook policy, the pages you want to merge both have the same name. Eg: I have two pages name PCMOBITECH 1 and PCMOBITECH 2, These can be easily merged but if I want to merge PCMOBITECH to BloggingGlobal then Facebook will not allow you to do this change because both page audiences are different.
- Your pages must have similar place/category. Before merging both pages, Do changes in page category and make them similar to each other. Go to your page URL and click on About option which will available on left section and clicks on the “Edit” link.
- Along with these also make sure all other information on About page should be matched to each other.
How to merge Two Facebook pages?
If you have read above t&c and agree with them. To merge two pages Go to this page.
- Select your Pages from the first and second drop-down menu, That you want to Merge. After choosing similar pages, click on the “Continue” button.
- On Next, a message will appear on the screen: “The Page you select will have the combined likes and check-ins from both merged Pages. Everything else from the other Page will be lost and permanently deleted.”
- Here Choose the page, which you want to keep. Means this page will remain active after the merging process and other page and data will be deleted completely. So select the page from the drop-down menu and click on the “Keep Page” button.
- Now If everything you have followed correctly then on next you’ll see Merge Request Successful: You have successfully requested the merge message. Click on OK button.
- And now your pages have been successfully merged.
How to Merge multiple pages?
Update: Due to new Facebook page merging policy multiple pages can’t be merged. So now below process won’t work. Sorry!
Mostly time, the page does not merge and an error appears on the screen “These Pages can’t be merged because their names aren’t similar”. That means you are trying to merge the two pages, are some differences among them. Therefore the pages are not merged. So you will find out that they differ. If you still are trying to merge these pages, click on the contact support link.
