How to Merge your Facebook Pages

How to Merge your Facebook Pages

If you’re like me, you might have a couple of Facebook Pages which are really similar that you’d like to merge together. One was originally a test page so I am merging that with my new page.
Here’s my walkthrough of how I merged a couple of my Facebook pages together.
I originally received the following messages when I looked to merge my Facebook Pages, but after making some consistency changes, I was provided the option to Merge.

Initial ineligibility to merge pages together

Step 1 – Go to Facebook’s Page Merge page

Step 2 – Select pages to be Merged

Step 3 – Read and confirm that you’d like to merge your Facebook Pages

Here’s an example of the details that they will ask you to review and confirm.

Request to merge your duplicate Pages

If you are an admin of multiple Pages that represent the same thing, we may be able to merge them. Merging Pages combines all of your likes and check-ins into one Page.
I have read and understand the above information.
Choose the Page that you want to keep:
Deja Vu Guides
Merging Pages combines the people who like your Pages and any check-ins, but posts, photos, reviews, ratings and the username will be deleted from the Page you merge. 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. The Page you don’t want to keep will be removed from Facebook, and you won’t be able to unmerge it.
Please do not submit duplicate requests.
The Pages that you merge must be about the same thing. If it’s not clear that your Pages represent the same thing, they can’t be merged.
Examples of acceptable merge requests:
• “Jane Smith BodyArt” into “Jane Smith Body Art”
• “Chris’ Cupcakes – Austin” into “Chris’ Cupcakes”
• “Photography by Kat” into “Photography by Kat Camera”
Examples of merge requests that require a 7-day waiting period:
• “The Spa at Hotel” into “Hotel”
• “Facebook” into “Facebook Chat”
• “Sheryl Cooper” into “Sheryl Cooper’s Accounting Service”
Examples of merge requests that can’t be processed:
• “Fans of Facebook” into “Facebook”
I acknowledge that the Pages I’m requesting to merge may be significantly different. I understand that this may require a 7-day waiting period to notify the people who like the Page to be merged. I also understand that both Pages must be published at the time of request. I would still like to proceed with this request.
Pages You Want to Merge
Use the drop-down menus to select up to 5 Pages you’d like to merge into your destination Page. You can only mergePages that you manage.
After we process your request, likes and check-ins will be combined on the destination Page. All other content such as posts, photos and the username will be permanently deleted from the Pages you merged.
Vu Long Tran
Please review this request before submitting. Once your Pages have been merged, it cannot be undone. Do not submit multiple requests. If you accidentally submit a request, wait until you hear back from the Facebook team. Submitting another request could result in all of your Pages being permanently deleted.

Step 4 – Submit your request when you’re ready

Submit your request when you’re ready. Please submit only once. 
Right now, I am waiting for to become my main Facebook page. 


How to connect Facebook to Twitter accounts

Connecting your Facebook to Twitter accounts

You may be wondering if it is possible to connect your Facebook Page to multiple Twitter accounts, either as you have more than one Facebook Page or more than one Twitter account.
I faced this question, when I was setting up this blog to be separate from some other Facebook pages and Twitter accounts that I manage.
Now from my experience, it’s difficult to set up this from the Twitter to Facebook side. This is the following issue you’ll often face. So we’ll need to approach it from Facebook to Twitter instead – since Facebook gives you some more customizable selections here.
In this example, I was looking to link up my @dejavuguides Twitter to my DejaVuGuides Facebook page, but I already have my @vulongtran Twitter and VuLongTran Facebook pages connected.

To resolve this issue, you need to set this up on Facebook’s side, so you are selecting the Facebook account you want to connect.
It’s not easy to find where this is on Facebook’s settings, so I’d suggest visiting this page directly.

Step 1 – Visit Facebook to Twitter Connect page from Facebook

Step 2 – Choose your Facebook account

Choose your personal Facebook account and then click “Link to Twitter”. Then simply choose which items you’d like to send to Twitter. I’d suggest the “Status Updates” at the minimum and maybe the “Links”. The rest, are more depending on how you what your business/ personal needs to share across from Facebook to Twitter.

Step 3 – “Save Changes” once you’re comfortable with what you was to send over to Twitter

Step 4 – You should see a confirmation screen 

If you refresh the page, you should see something like this. 

Note –  This is only to post from Facebook to Twitter only. There doesn’t seem to be a way to make it from Twitter to Facebook from the options that I have seen. There is a difference, as it’s one way from Facebook to Twitter and not the other way around. As you’ll see in this screenshot.

From a practical perspective, it simply means you post more inside the Facebook website instead of Twitter.
