A Guide on How to Delete a Facebook Page

Having an online platform where you can introduce and interact with your prospective and existing customers is one of the best ways to promote your business and brand. There are many channels for achieving this objective, and one of them is having a Facebook page. You may ask, what makes a Facebook page different from a Facebook profile?

A Facebook profile is your personal Facebook account where you share your ideas and connect with friends and family, while a Facebook page is specifically created for business purposes, to connect with your customers, market and promote your products and services, and gain a wider audience as you increase your online presence. This platform has assisted businesses and corporations to increase their brand awareness and productivity. 

There will be instances when you may choose to delete a Facebook page. It could be because the business has collapsed or it has shut down, or other personal reasons. It can be quite herculean to do this if you don’t have a guide. This article will lead you through the steps to get this done without breaking a sweat.

First, you must be the administrator of your page. This means that you're either in control or the manager of your page is in control. If you're not an admin of the page and you can’t reach the manager, then you might not be able to delete your Facebook page. If you're trying to delete a duplicate page and you don't have access to it, claim ownership of that page first. By doing so, you become an admin, and you can now access the option to delete the Facebook page.


Why Can't I Delete My Facebook Page?

If you're unable to delete a Facebook page, then you are not an admin of that Facebook page. In a rare case, another admin may have canceled the deletion of that page before the 14 day trial elapsed. The other admin may have reasons to cancel the Facebook page, especially if he is unaware of the reason for the Facebook page deletion.

However, if your page is registered with a Facebook Business Manager (FBM) account connected to a “parent” company, you can learn how to delete the Facebook Page using the Facebook Business Manager.


What Does Deleting A Facebook Page Mean?

Deleting your Facebook page means that it will be taken down and nobody will be able to see or access it. However, there is a clause. If the page deletion is not intentional or you later change your mind within 14 days, you can restore the page. All its contents, posts, and engagements will be restored, including data and Facebook reviews. If the 14 day period elapses, then all content will be lost and you can’t retrieve the page. You must be sure of your intent to delete your Facebook page before taking action.

Unpublishing a Facebook Page

If you’re uncertain about your intention to delete your Facebook page or you're being careful about losing your Facebook business page’s content and data, you have the option to “unpublish” the Facebook page. Unpublishing your page means that it will be hidden from the social media space and people who follow your page. It will only be visible to the admin who manages the Facebook page.

You can publish or unpublish your Facebook page whenever you want to. However, if you permanently delete a page, it cannot be undone after 14 days when the review period is over.

How can I permanently remove a Facebook page

Why am I unable to delete a Facebook page?

If you are not the page's administrator, you can’t delete the Facebook page. Also, another admin might have halted the deletion of that page prior to the expiration of the trial's 14 days review period. If the other admin is unaware of the cause of the Facebook page deletion, he may have good reason to delete the page.

You can find out how to delete the Facebook page using the Facebook Business Manager if your page is associated with a Facebook Business Manager (FBM) account linked to a "parent" company.
