If you want to recover a deleted Facebook page, you can either check the “Deactivated Pages” list or reach out to Facebook itself for assistance. Pages are normally deleted for going against the community standards, terms, or policies of Facebook.
A Facebook page can be a very important tool for businesses and groups to share information, attract new customers/members, and so much more. Because of this, having a Facebook page get deleted can be a terrible experience and cause a lot of worry.
But thankfully, all hope is not lost if a page is deleted. Read on to learn more about how to recover a deleted Facebook page, as well as why they get deleted in the first place.
- Checking the Deactivated Pages list in your Facebook account can show you any recently deleted pages you have, and allow you to bring them back in some cases.
- If it’s not there, consider reaching out to Facebook support. They may be able to review the case and reactivate a page. However, keep in mind that this will only work if the account was accidentally deleted, and not if it was removed for going against guidelines.
- Facebook pages can be deleted for a variety of reasons such as by accident, for hate speech, for bullying, for impersonation, and for several other things that go against Facebook Community Standards and guidelines.
Solution 1: Check Your Deactivated Pages List
The first place to check is the Deactivated Pages list in your Facebook account. Any page that you have recently deleted should appear here. To reach the page, the first step is to log into Facebook on your computer.
Once in your account, you need to click on your profile picture on the upper right side of the screen. Next, click see all profiles and then see all pages.
This page should show you all of your Facebook pages, including ones that have been deactivated. Simply search through the results until you find the right one and click Activate to recover it.
Solution 2: Reach Out to Facebook Support
If your deleted page doesn’t show up here, the next thing to try is to reach out to Facebook support. You can do this by filling out a simple online form and report a page unavailable. You just need to enter the page URL and provide a detailed description of what occurred.
You can also reach out to Facebook support directly via email to voice your concerns.
Keep in mind that if your page is taken down/deleted because you went against community standards or another policy, your appeal is unlikely to be successful. However, some Facebook pages can accidentally be deleted as a mistake.
If this is your situation, and you truly feel you did nothing wrong with the page, don’t hesitate to reach out as it could end up saving your page.
Why Does a Facebook Page Get Deleted?
If you have a Facebook page disabled, it is a good idea to learn why it may have been removed. There are several reasons why your page could have been deleted and in many cases, it stems from going against the Facebook Community Standards.
These outline the things that are and aren’t allowed on Facebook. Some things that go against Facebook, and thus could get your page deleted, include making threats, fraud, bullying, hate speech, spam, impersonating others, and plenty more.
Knowing these can help ensure that any future Facebook page you create is operating within the guidelines and won’t get deleted. There are also other terms and policies that are important to be aware of when running a page.
However, there are some cases where you may have accidentally deleted the page yourself or it was improperly removed by Facebook.
Whether you have a Facebook page for your business or simply to foster a community, the last thing you want is to see the page get deleted out of nowhere.
I hope this guide has helped you learn not only how to try to recover the page, but taught you a little more about the things that can lead to a page being deleted in the first place.
