Delete a Facebook Page

Do you have a Facebook page that’s just sitting there which you no longer use? Would you like to get rid of it for good? Read on as I walk you through on how to delete a Facebook page.

Facebook comprises different sections, one of which is the Timeline used to interact with friends and family. The Pages, on the other hand can be used to advertise businesses and widen customer base or to promote a course…the list is endless. These pages could be extensions of personal pages. However, when you no longer want a particular Facebook page, you can delete it while leaving other pages (if there exists any) and your personal profile intact.
