Facebook name change and merge

Posted by Kathy Winter @kathywinter, Nov 25, 2020

Hi, all! Has anyone merged pages on FB AND a name change? Two of our locations are merging and getting a new name as a result. My thought is to change the name of the page we are keeping first and then, closer to the actual merging of the locations, merge the FB pages. Any advice appreciated.

Hi, seems like a good strategy to me. I have merged pages and changed names of pages and it was really easy to do. I would only consider advising users of the changes a few days before merging the pages, to avoid, as much as possible, that they stop following the final page.

Do you keep your followers from both pages when merging?

Yes, you do. If the followers are on both pages, it will only appear once, so the number of followers on the final page will not be the sum of the two pages, that's all.
