Deleting a Facebook page is really simple, let me show you how.

What you should know about Facebook page deletion
A Facebook page is not the same as a Facebook profile. They both differ tremendously. While the Facebook profile is individualistic and gives people the opportunity to connect with you as a person. The Facebook page is a public representation of your business, organization or your idea. It can also represent a person, especially if he is a public figure. Facebook pages are usually liked or followed, rather than ‘added’, Deleting your page from Facebook will automatically wipe away your page and its content. Rather than delete you could either unpublish your page or fuse it with an existing page of the same name.
Why is it so difficult for me to delete my Facebook business page?
The most common reason for a user’s inability to deactivate a Page is that they are not an administrator of the Page.
If you’re an administrator and still can’t deactivate your Page, it’s possible that another administrator canceled the deletion before the 14-day period expired.
Your Page could also be linked to a Facebook Business Manager (FBM) account for a “parent” company. You’ll need to know how to deactivate a Facebook business page using Facebook Business Manager in this scenario (more on this later).
When I delete a Facebook Business Page, what happens?
No one will be allowed to view or locate your Page if you delete it. In the event that you change your mind, you have 14 days to recover the Page. After that, you’ll be prompted to verify if you want to permanently remove it.
Please remember that deleting the Page permanently deletes all of its content and data. Likes, comments, discussions, and Facebook reviews are all part of this.
Unpublishing a Facebook Page
If you’re concerned about losing all of the information on your Facebook business Page, you may simply “unpublish” it. This keeps it hidden from the general public, including your Page’s fans.
You can unpublish your Page at any time if you’re an admin. Unpublished Pages are only available to the Page’s administrators. It won’t be available to the general public until it’s republished.
