    Does any one know.. when you sell a fan page, does facebook keep a record of original admin / creator of the fan page - even if they are no longer an admin?

    Yes, they do have track record of everything.

    How I know? When a page is transferred to some other user via fraudulent means, facebook uses the page history and other metrics to determine authenticity of the transfer.

    What's fraudulent? To get a facebook page all you have to do it get the seller to make you an admin then you don't make him an admin anymore making you the only admin. It's perfectly normal... people get added as admins to pages all the time. Facebook just thinks a new admin has been added. been doing it like that for a long time with no issues.

    Ah! I see you joined recently.

    1. This was just an example to prove that facebook keeps track of everything.

    2. In recent past there were cases of fake attempt in which people used to claim over other owners pages as a company for trademark breach. And were asked to click a link which would transfer the ownership to scammer. It was just one particular case of multiple cases in which a buyer fails to pay up after ownership was transferred to him. These are several fraudulent ways to gain ownership.

    3. These were all examples. Just like BHW has record of all the deleted posts/threads, a social network like facebook also keeps a track record in case it might be required later for various purposes, one of which was addressed by me.
