Facebook Pages don’t always work out. If you’ve got an old Facebook Page that you don’t want anyone to find, here’s how you can unpublish (hide) your Facebook Page for a while, or delete it permanently.

You can do this in two ways. You can unpublish your Facebook Page so that it doesn’t show up in search or on anyone’s news feed (but Page managers can still access it). If you’re sure you don’t want anything to do with a Page anymore, you can permanently remove your Facebook Page as well.
