Someone created a Facebook business page with my business name and it wasn’t me. #QandA

You are starting or just started a page on Facebook for your business. Then you do a quick search and you find a business page with your business name that you did not create. Whats is going on? Can you remove that page?

There can be a view reasons why this page is there:

  1. You or a colleague added an employer with the business name to their personal profile. They just added the name of the company without connecting it to a page. This happens often.
    Facebook automatically creates an empty page, with the blue briefcase, with the business name.
  2. Someone checked in at your location using your business name. Here Facebook also creates a page automatically, a ‘place’.
  3. Someone, possibly a fan, started a page for your business
