    Depends, do you have control of both of the Facebook pages?

    If you do, read this: https://www.facebook.com/help/249601088403018

    If you don't, you can try to report the page as a duplicate, but Facebook is slow to respond to those reports. They may also just remove the duplicate page instead of merging them when you use the report option.

    Thanks bro, but my pages have different names, just the same niche. I guess that's not possible?

    What if you changed the name of one of the pages? Unless the page is verified, it shouldn't cause any problems that I know of (if it is verified, you'll have to re-verify the page).

    No problem! Though before you do change the name of one of the pages, try to see if you can find any information around the forum from someone who's done something similar. The only thread I found where someone was in a similar situation was this one.

    The pages would have to be "identical" or "represent the same thing", so be sure to keep that in mind.

    @redrubies did mention back in 2015 that merging pages should work as long as the topics are similar.
