So you want to delete your Facebook page? Here's how in four easy steps.


Facebook no doubt is one of, if not the most popular social media platform in the world.

According to statista, the number of daily active Facebook users as of the fourth quarter of 2018. was found to be 1.52 billion. Other sources also gave figures in some cases a little lower or more. It's still safe to say it has the largest number of active users of all social media platforms.

But as your online activities evolve, the need to delete your current Facebook account or page (s) may become an option.

Or put differently, the need to delete one of your Facebook account or page maybe one you want to strongly consider at some point in your social media journey.

That’s exactly what happened to me recently.

Everybody has their reasons for this, and mine is:

I’ve two Facebook pages which I can’t confidently say fully represent my professional brand on a social media space like Facebook.

In addition to being of poor designs, the purpose for which they were created has evolved and more so because I’ve also never promoted any of them.

Those are my perfect alibi for considering their deletion.

The thought became an emergency last year when Facebook suddenly change their algorithm which blocked access to it of automated third party content promotions tools across multiple social media like IFTTT which I use on this blog, leaving Facebook account owners with small businesses using it for traffic generation with the only option of cumbersome manual sharing.

With this, only big brands with financial muscle for ads can survive real time.

Unfortunately, I belong in the former category. I’m just a small ambitious blog.  And immediately, traffic to my blog went from Hero to Zero and I was left gasping for breath. And that has left me angry.

In response, my initial plan was to delete my account altogether which I did set in motion.

A week or so into requesting for deletion, I had to rethink my choice strategically and came to a conclusion to delete the pages instead, go on to create new one that will help reposition my brand for more awareness, of course with the intention to promote it this time around.

It’s only normal if you want to grow your business or brand on a social media behemoth like Facebook.

That’s the reality of today. Whatever is or are your reasons to want to take action like this, come with me.

Now let's get down to the real deal.

To delete your Facebook page (s), all you need is to be an account owner with Facebook.

Step 1. Log in to your Facebook account and proceed to click on the pages link at the top of your profile or home page.

Step2. Click on the page's icon. When it becomes fully display, look for setting at the top right of the page. If you can’t find it, it might be because you're accessing it from a mobile device. So, at this point you just might need to switch to desktop version.

Step3. In the next page that popped up, look for general which is at the top the charted page. Scroll down the list on its menu and click remove page; and then click on delete page name.

Step4. Click on delete page and then OK.

And you're DONE!

Hope this helps?
