As anyone can create a page and it requires no certain authority from a particular person. So, many such incidents happen where one can see a page relevant to his business that he never created.

Here you can either merge your original page and the copy page as it may also have a good number of followers. Or you can request deletion if you are not an admin.

Why Facebook Deleted a Page?

Facebook Deleted a Page

There can be many reasons for one to delete his/her Facebook page. Apart from that Facebook itself can delete or take down the pages, groups, accounts. Here are some basic reasons.

1- Members

If Facebook deletes your page, the reason can be less or no number of members. If the admin has left the page and it has no new admin. Or the members are not involved in any activity.

In such cases, the page gets deleted. To avoid it there should be at least one admin and a good number of audience.

2- Terms of Service Abuse

Another reason for shutting down any page is that if it has violated Facebook’s terms. Or if your posts or content has something against the community or its basic standards.

Facebook abide one to post such things that show violence, nudity, aggression, etc.

Or if any viewer has reported against your page for violation then also it will go down.

3- Admin Takeover

People tend to use support for running pages by appointing more admins. If the page has a huge audience then it becomes hard for one person to manage all the tasks.

So, if one of those admins turn out to be the bad guy, he can remove all other admins. And take complete control of the page. He can damage the page’s reputation or remove all members.

This also leads to deletion of the page.

4- Maintenance Errors

Your page may be unavailable to you our audience. This doesn’t mean that it’s deleted. Sometimes, the pages can be also down due to maintenance purposes.

Or if Facebook is in the maintenance phase. But the period is usually short and lasts 24- hours at the max. Try to access it after this period, yet if it still is not accessible, you need to report.
