    Question How many Facebook pages we can merge?

    Hi,

    I have created many profiles to have high numbers of friends and subscribers to convert it to page later. I did this for 10 profiles and each profile has unique friends and subscribers. I converted these profiles to pages and all these pages now have same name. I would like to merge these pages to have high numbers of Likes under one page.

    My questions is that how many pages we can merge? Is there any limit or we can merge unlimited pages?

    I don't think it's based on number, but rather what the situation is
    https://www.facebook.com/page_guidelines.php
    B. Name Changes and Migrations
    We will only process name changes and migrations that do not result in a misleading or unintended connection. For example, we will allow local to global migrations, such as “Facebook France” to “Facebook”, but will not allow global to local migrations, or location to location migrations, such as “Facebook France” to “Facebook Russia”. Additionally, you may not request a name change or migration that would result in re-categorizing a product Page to a brand Page, a generic or opinion Page to a brand Page, or a Group to a Page. All migrations are at our discretion and are final.

    That is true the migration is based on the criteria they have. It is easy to merge two pages having similar names but what if I have 10 pages with similar names? One of my friend tried page merging and he was able to merge maximum 5 pages.

    I have not yet seen any of such rules of Facebook about limitation of Facebook page.

    Facebook didn't mention but this is what many of my friends experienced. It is easy to increase number of likes for a page if there is no such limitation. Make profiles, add friends to profile and convert to page and then merge with another page.

    Well its first time I am going through this kind of knowledge about Facebook pages. I have seen my friends changed their profiles to Facebook pages but I never did this with any of my account. I don't think so its kind of good practice so I didn't check this myself.

    No numbers is not defined, you can merge as many pages you want. But, if suppose you are merging 3 pages and each having 100 fans then on merge it will become 300, not necessary because some people are fans of all three pages. All the fans get combined and be the fan of your "Keeper" page only.

    I am agree with you, if same fans in three pages then the total likes won't be 300 but if different fans then the number of likes will go up.

    I heard that there is no limitation, so if you can't do this then you can write to facebook support.

    I don't think there is a limitation, but if you do find that there is an unwritten limitation set, perhaps doing the merge in a few steps might be beneficial? Merge a few, wait a couple of months, merge the rest. I'd start with the highest numbered ones first so that you're sure to get them on board. Let us know if you find anything out through this process!

    Thanks everyone.

    As can be seen by the number of "there is no limit" replies, we have reached a concensus and there is little point in continuing.

    Thread Closed.
