New Facebook Page Settings, Plus Merging Duplicate Pages 2013

Facebook Page flagHow to merge duplicate Facebook Pages and edit your Facebook Page Settings, July 2013

Facebook got a face lift of their back end for Pages recently. The page info, settings, admin roles, audience suggestions, featured, and mobile are all on a new slick menu. But resources, where you had the ability to create a facebook like button or like box to your site and the ability to merge duplicate pages, well that’s all moved and it’s not exactly clear on how to get to it, but we’ve provided the links below for you.

There’s also a couple of new features that we’ve noticed. For example, we noticed that no mater what category your page is, there is now the ability to add three keywords as topics on what your page is about. We believe that this has a lot to do with Graph Search.

Nothing seems to have changed on Settings and this is where you would modify posting ability & visibility, aging restrictions, tagging ability, etc., just as before:

Audience suggestions, featured (likes and pages owners), and mobile are all available via the More drop down menu:

But what you can’t find is where to merge duplicate pages or where the resources section is to find the social plugins.  The social plugins are available on the developers page still, but there’s no easy link from your Page. You’ll have to either click on Developers in the footer and navigate to it, or go to this link:

As for merging duplicate pages – my favorite topic! It seems that Facebook hasn’t yet updated their Help article yet, and not everyone will have the Merge Pages option listed in their Page SETTINGS (as seen above).  HOWEVER, they do have this article that allows you to merge duplicate pages:
