What to do if you can’t claim your Facebook page
If you’ve tried to claim your Facebook page and you can’t seem to get it, don’t worry – there are a few things you can do.
First, try reaching out to the person who created the page and asking them to transfer it to you. If that doesn’t work, or if you don’t know who created the page, you can try reporting the page to Facebook. Keep in mind that Facebook may not be able to take action on every report, but it’s worth a try.
If you’re still having trouble claiming your page, your best bet is to create a new page for your business. It may not be ideal, but at least you’ll have a presence on Facebook!

1. Go to the existing page and click on the “About” section.
2. Find the “Claim This Page” link and click it.
3. Follow the prompts to verify that you are the owner of the page.
4. Once you have been verified, you will be able to manage the page as normal.
