    Hi hatters,

    I have 2 pages on fb , they are same and one is 20k fans, another one is 12k.
    What do you think is it better to merge those pages into one page or not?

    What's pros and cons in this case?

    Hajrobaba,

    I suppose it would depend on if the pages were similar in terms of audience. Are the pages built around the same theme? Do they have the same demographics? If you are making money off the pages you might want to think about those things first or you could risk messaging not resonating well with your audience.

    Best,

    Shawn

    Thank you for reply.

    This is two same pages (same name, same theme/niche), fans are 90% from US on both pages, and they are mostly females 18-24.
    Currently, I am pushing those pages to 100.000 fans, so later I will monetize it.
    They're pretty active pages, have a lot of comments and likes on status updates.

    I personally think, it's better to leave it as it is because I will be able to reach more people. Just want to hear other people's opinions before I decide to merge it or not.

    My opinion: Don't merge them...
    And your best way to keep them alive and yourself safe, is to have them in two different Facebook accounts, with two different managers :D
    Because of just one page with 8k, FaceMotherFuckinBook, Unpublished all the other fan pages that this little page manager had.
    Like this I lost more then 1m+ fans in total :D
    BE SMART, LEARN FROM OTHER MISTAKES, and don't be dumb to learn only by your mistakes :D
    Cheers
