How to create a Facebook structure from existing pages

This article will guide you in creating a Facebook structure in preparation to connect to the platform

Last updated on December 29th, 2021

This means you already manage some existing ‘business pages’ in Facebook but they are not nested under a Main page. 

This scenario requires some steps to follow to create the structure due to Facebook requirements.

First of all, Facebook requires all the pages to have the same name as the Main page. However, 'business pages’ are not allowed to have the same name. 

Step 1 Create a Main (Brand) page

 We recommend you use the existing business page with the most followers/likes. 

In the process, you will be removing the address of the existing page and you will be asked if you wish to create a location page automatically with the address that you are hiding.

Here you will find the information on how to set a Main page.

Step 2 Create one location page

If you didn't already do this in the previous step, create one location. 

Add one location to your brand page by following the steps described here.

Step 3 Rename existing pages and nest under Main page

The next step is to rename each page before migrating them to the structure.

You can migrate the rest of your business pages into your new location structure; choose "Migrate an existing page" to turn that specific page into a location page.


It is possible that Facebook limits the amount of pages the user is able to migrate. 

If you are unable to continue migrating pages or encounter difficulties, please contact Facebook support and they will assist you in the process. If you wish to change the naming, this is also possible through Facebook support.

Once this process is concluded, you are set to connect! 

The system will create the missing location pages automatically and nest them under the Main page.
