If you create an Official Facebook Page (also called a Business Page, Fan Page, or Page) and decide you want to delete it, here’s how:

  1. Log in to your Facebook account.
  2. Go to your Page. You can get there by selecting “Account” (upper righthand corner) and then clicking “Use Facebook as Page.”  A list of all the Pages you administer will pop up. Click the link of the page you want to delete.
  3. Once you’re at your page, click “Edit Page” (upper righthand corner).
  4. Click “Manage Permissions” (from the lefthand sidebar).
  5. Under “Delete Page,” click “Permanently delete this Page.”

A new menu will open with the following prompt:
