Grab that Page. Notes to Me.

I thought that this information was useful, but I could never quite find it. Hence I am posting it here really more for my own use, but you can feel free to use it too. Now on to the Show. Straight from Facebook, here is : How do I claim a Page that already exists for my business? Can I merge it with my business’s official Page?

A Facebook Page may exist for your business even if you or someone else from your business didn’t create it. This happens for a variety of reasons. For example, when someone checks into a place that doesn’t already have a Page, a new Page is created to represent the location.

If you’re the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity or brand and someone else has created a Page for it, you can report the Page. If no one is managing the Page, you can request to claim it. From the Page you want to claim:

  1. Click and select Is this your business?
  2. Click to check the box next to I am an official representative of [Page Name] and click Continue.
  3. Enter information about your relationship with the business and click Continue.
  4. Verify your connection to the business by Email or Documentation:
    • Email: Choose this option if you have an email address associated with your Facebook account that’s officially issued to you by your business. Email addresses from generic providers like Yahoo! or Gmail will not be accepted. The email address should correspond to your business’s name (ex: jane.doe@acmeproducts.com).
    • Documentation: Choose this option to upload a scanned copy or photo of an official document that shows your business’s name and address (ex: phone bill, business license, business tax file or articles of incorporation).
  5. Click Submit.

Please allow up to one week for your request to be reviewed. If your request is accepted, you’ll become an admin of the Page.

Once you’ve claimed your Page, you may be able to merge it with any duplicate Pages that you have. The Pages must represent the same thing and have similar names to be eligible for merging. If the Pages have physical locations, make sure the addresses are the same.
