How to report duplicate Facebook pages
Use this process if you want to have a duplicate Facebook pages removed.
It will help if you can get other people to do this as well because if more people report the problem Facebook will take this as additional proof. Don’t overdo this however – aim for another two or three people to submit reports.
- Log in to Facebook
- Go to the page you want to report as a duplicate page. I’m using the city of Brisbane as an example i.e. as if I were the admin of the official Brisbane City FB page and this was the duplicate
Select ‘Report Page’
- Click on the … menu and select Report Page
Report Page as Duplicate
Select the Duplicate of another Place option
Select the Facebook page it is a duplicate of
- Start typing the name of the Facebook page this page is a duplicate of. Pages will appear as you type.
- Select the page that this page is a duplicate of
- Click on Submit
Your report is completed
Now wait for the facebook admins (or robots) to process your request. This may take a while but keep an eye out for notifications or to see if the duplicate page is removed
