How to delete a Facebook page

Want to delete a Facebook page? We have already shown here how to delete your Facebook (profile), and also how to delete your Instagram. However, to delete a fan page (of artists, products, brands, humor or subjects of public interest) that you manage, the tutorial steps will be completely different.

What you need to know before deleting a page

  • after you request the deletion of a page, you can recover it in a maximum of 14 days;
  • once deleted, the page cannot be recovered;
  • to delete a page, you must be the administrator (no other position is authorized to delete it);
  • you can also take the page down without deleting it (see end of post).

Now that you are aware of the risks, let’s go to the steps:
