  2. When I try and do this, it does not give the option of which page I want to keep??? It goes from Step 2 to Step 5. How can I select which page to keep??

  3. Hello everybody !

    I would like to choose the remaining page but it seems you can not do it anymore…
    It there a way around ?

    Thank you,
    Seb

  4. Hi!

    I have the same question as all above, I do not get the option to choose which page I keep. How can we choose which page to keep?

    Thanks!

  5. An error has occurred while merging pages. This may be caused by your attempt to merge too many pages.

    I keep getting this error code… Can you help?

  6. I have tried this however facebook automatically send a reply saying:

    ‘We’re unable to merge E Beauté into EH Beauté because it looks like these Pages represent different things. To merge two Pages, they must represent the same thing. To learn more about Page merge policies, please visit the Help Center: https://www.facebook.com/help/249601088403018/?ref=cr Thanks,’

    Please help i changed names so they are similar, profile pic but still no joy.

  7. I have tried this twice and from what I can tell it’s not processing. I can get through all of the steps (pages meet requirements) but it’s been at least a week and the pages are still not merged. Does facebook send any kind of notification to the page support inbox showing any kind of status? I just feel like it is lost out there in cyber land. What else can be done?

  8. Hello.

    Thanks for this informative post. I am wondering whether you could shed some insight onto the issue I am having:

    I am attempting to merge two Facebook pages with a substantial amount of followers each. I follow the above steps and it says “merge successfully requested” but nothing has happened. I first requested the merge on Monday (today is Friday, so 5 days ago). I attempted the merge again yesterday (Thursday) and again today. Each time it tells me the merge has been successfully requested but nothing has happened. Surely it should not take this long.

    Could you help me, at all?

    Thanks very much.

    • I’m having the exact same issue, and finding help through FB community seems non-existent. If you find answers, please respond here. I’m still searching as well.

  9. Hello! Im trying to merge 2 pages, I’m admin for both, everything on the pages are identicall but it doesnt work. I get the error-message “You are trying to merge to many pages” However these are the only 2 I’m trying to merge. I have tried to contact facebook-support but it doesnt work. Even tried VPN to US to cpntact Facebook support but that doesnt work either. Anyone have the same problem or the sulution?

  10. Hey I have tried this but get this response:
    These Pages can’t be merged because either (page1) or (page 2) is the primary Page of a Business Manager.

    But I have checked and page 2 is the primary page of business manager.

    Do you know how to fix?

  11. Hi all! I am getting a “Sorry, something went wrong.
    We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.
    Go Back” error message when I click the link to merge. Isn’t anyone else getting this? What is the correct link to go to merge pages?

    • You need to wait until Facebook fixes the issue. It is common practice nowadays so keep patients.

  12. Hi
    I have the same question as two individuals above, I do not get the option to choose which page I keep. How can we choose which page to keep?

    Thanks!

  13. I got an error saying the pages can’t be merged because there’s a pending merge request. Where can I see this merge request? How can I fix this?

  14. I hardly think Facebook Merge Works Anymore… it used to when my pages were very viral but stopped when facebook unpublished millions of pages and reduced engagements by almost 80%.

    In the last couple of months 6-7months now I have been trying it sometimes shows ‘Successfully Merged’ but no changes even about 20 minutes ago.

    Facebook Team never solves anything.

    I think they have disabled it cos merges used to work instantly until mid-2018.

    • it is true?? because i already do a several time 2 month ago until now.. but its still same.. no change..

  15. can you help me?? i already succesful request merge.. but the page still same no merge at all.. why?

  16. I do it but once the pages “merge succesfully” does not happen nothing, remains each one.
