Delete Facebook Page

Whether it’s your personal or business page, Facebook allows you to reach a broader audience. However, if you don’t need your Facebook page anymore, you can delete your page easily. Alternatively, you can also keep your page in “unpublished” status so no one can see or visit your page. Before heading down towards the steps, make sure you are the page admin. 

Note: Deleting a Facebook page is permanent and you cannot recover once it’s done.

Unpublishing your page is the best alternative option for deleting. When your Facebook page is unpublished, it will hide the page from the public (including followers), and only the ones who manage the page will be able to view and edit it.
