A Facebook page is different from your personal Facebook profile. Pages are used by people and businesses to promote themselves online. For example, a musician might make a Facebook page to share their music. Or a company might have a page to advertise their products.
Pages are public – anyone can see them, even people who aren’t your Facebook friends. You can use pages to post updates, photos, events, and more. This helps you connect with new audiences.
Personal profiles are private. Only your Facebook friends can see your posts and info. Profiles are for connecting with people you know. Pages are for promoting yourself or your business to new people.
The main difference is pages are public, profiles are private. Pages help you advertise, profiles help you connect with friends.
The easiest way how to hide or delete a Facebook page
Let’s say you have a Facebook page you no longer want public. Maybe the page is old or embarrassing. Or you don’t want certain people seeing it anymore. Whatever the reason, Facebook lets you hide or delete pages.
To hide a page, go to your page’s Settings. Click on the “Visibility” tab. There is an option to “Hide Page.” Click this and your page will disappear from Facebook. Other people won’t be able to see it.
If you want to permanently delete a page, go to the page’s Settings. At the very bottom is a link saying “Permanently delete [page name].” Click this to delete the page forever. All content on the page will be erased.
So in summary, you can easily hide or delete any Facebook page you manage. Hiding removes the page from public view. Deleting erases the page completely. Use these options if you ever need to take a page down.
How to hide the Facebook page
Log into your Facebook account. Go to the page you want to hide and click on the settings at the top. Under Page Visibility, click on Edit. Choose Unpublished and click Save Changes. Select a reason for unpublishing the page and click Next. On the next screen, click Unpublish instead of Delete. Click Save Changes again.
That’s it! The page is now hidden. Just remember to always click Save Changes after making any edits in the settings. Let me know if you need me to clarify or expand on any part of these instructions. I tried to break it down into clear, easy to follow steps.
Open Facebook>Select the page you want to Hide>Open Page Setting>Page Visibility>Page Unpublished & Save changes>Select your reason and Tap on the Next Button>Select Unpublish.
How to delete the Facebook page
Go to your page and click on Settings at the top. In the General section, find the Remove Page option. Click on Delete Your Page. Facebook will ask if you want to Permanently Delete (Your Page Name). Click Delete.
A pop-up will ask you to confirm that you want to delete the page. Click Delete Page.
That’s all there is to it! Once you click delete on the confirmation, your Facebook page will be permanently removed. This deletes the page and all of its content for good.
Let me know if you need any clarification on these steps for fully deleting a page on Facebook. I aimed to break it down into a straightforward process using simple language.
