Is it possible to merge 2 fan pages?

    Once you have your 'vanity' URL, it will not change (recently tried!)... So I have been setting up the *new* branded page, and will first break my network blog to it, then setup the networked blog to the new page...

    I am pretty certain that this is explained in Facebook Help pages - once you get the 'personal' page or as I call it your 'vanity url' then it's done for life. You do need to setup a new fan page if you want the URL to reflect your desired link...

    If you don't care about that link... it should be straight forward to 'merge' a couple pages... but it's rather pointless without the 'optimum' link to set it off in the search engines...

    My *opinions* only... YMMV, and with any luck we will BOTH learn something when a true expert comes along!

      Well, it all depends on the resultant link - and the link can be very important when you think about it.

      If you are keeping the *best* link, then sure you could do it. The other page's link would just go dormant, or point to the 'new and improved' like if it was active in the past.

      What exactly are you trying to do?

      I guess I am not understanding what your concept of 'merge' is really looking to accomplish...

      I can be slow like that... :p

      Okay, that's better - Now that you have the new page built, why can't you simply take the page with 300 likes, and put your newly designed page on it?

      Should not affect the likes or anything else I would imagine...

      I don't know what mods you have made to the page, but they should be portable.

      Most of us will do up a page, then move it to the place it's intended to reside... this should be no different.

      Does that make sense?
