    I get a friendship request on one of Facebook accounts I own. I accept it as I want the profile to have some friends. Later today I get notification "Username" has created the page "username". They added you and other friends from the profile. I visit that page and it shows I like it. How is it possible ? So a friend can make me automatically like his page. Also, the page got 20000 likes in a day, how is this happening ?

    This reads suspicious. Never heard anything like this.

    Apparently the person created multiple accounts, add friends to each account, convert the profiles into pages then merge the pages together.

    in facebook, if you have a personal profile and you convert it to the facebook page, all your friends will become your followers of that page. means if i am your fb friend and if you convert your profile to page, I will become your follower ( i will automatically like your page+ follow it). thats why you alredy liked that page before landing there.

    in fb, it is easy to get friend request accepted than page likes. max you can add 5000 friends. so if you get 5000 friends in your profile and then convert it to page, you will directly get 5k followers and page likes. this is easy instead of starting a fresh page from 0 to 5k.

    you can merge any two pages . i never done it but, after you merge any 2 pages to a single one, you can request of merging that page with third. means you can merge multiple pages this way.

    if you convert your profile to page, obviously you will be the admin. (your old profile)

    you were in his friendlist and when he converted his account to a page, you became a liker or follower of page as you were already in his list. He Must had few more facebook accounts with similar names and he must have converted them to page as well. then he must had merged them together. You can merge upto 5 pages. Atleast in 2016 you could. Not sure now. Back in 2016, your followers also become your page likers. Not sure if its still happening. Facebook was so easy then. And also i used to extract a page from profile and then convert it back to a profile. in that way i could use profile and a page at same time

    Merging pages is need manual approval from fb.
    I have tried to merge my 2 or 3 pages, but it was rejected.
