    Hey!

    I'm admin of some pages with the same name in Facebook. When I try to merge them via the normal way (facebook.com/pages/merge), I get this well-known error:


    Some time ago, I could do this using a form but the link for that form is unavailable right now (even using Japanese or other language).

    Do you know if there is still a form out there or some way to merge those pages?

    Thank you!

    You already answered your question and Facebook already tells you why you can't merge the pages. Because you already merged pages once and apparently there's a limit, you can't merge pages all day. I don't know how long you have to wait to be able to merge again.

    The reason as to why you can not merge the pages is that you have reached the limit that is put there for merging. You will therefore not be able to merge more pages. And also it seems that you have merged very many pages and also reacjed the limit. I am not sure if you can be able to do this anymore.

    Guys... it worked but my page got blocked:

    "Your Page has been blocked from having its name changed.
    Your Page has been blocked from being merged."

    The page was not unpublished but this happened. I'm trying to appeal but it seems that the message isn't sent. Do you know how I can contact Facebook directly?

    I can give you the link by PM, for sure... but be careful!

    Home Page:
    One of my clients has about 4 different pages for his business, 3 of which he lost access to and 1 of which him and I both have access to. All of the pages have essentially the same information on them, and it's pretty obvious that the pages are duplicates. However, for the past 6 months, I've been trying to get Facebook to merge or at least remove the pages using all of the following:
    • The "This Place has duplicate or inaccurate info" report option
    • The "Merge duplicate pages" option
    • A form I found a while back.
    Facebook, being the poorly-managed advertising platform that it is, has yet to merge or remove the pages... 6 months later.

    But to answer your question, there is no way to contact Facebook directly. As one of the staff members put it, "For every 190,000 people using Facebook, there's one employee. This is one reason why we use signals from contact forms, feedback forms, and bug reports to tell us when things aren't working properly, and we aim to fix the biggest problems affecting the most amount of people as quickly as possible".
    https://www.facebook.com/help/community/question/?id=10151388016521467

    If your page was blocked from changing its name or merging, there's probably nothing you can do about it unless that block expires. My own company page was blocked from using Facebook ads back in April (although my Facebook Ads account is fine) because "Your promoted Page can't promote money-making opportunities without clear and accurate disclosure of terms". For the record, there are no "money-making opportunities" on that site, or at least not the type that Facebook was insinuating.

    Many people slam Google all the time, but at least Google has a damn appeal system and competent bots (well, for the most part).

    Does that affect my page's reach? I made a post some hours ago and the reach seems +/- the same...
