Ghosts of Facebook past

I had a client this week who needed help with ghosts – Facebook ghosts. Facebook ghosts (and I’ve seen these on LinkedIn too) are pages you accidently set up – usually with no information except your company name – and then forget you ever had them.

The trouble is, these ghost pages show up in searches of your company along with your actual page that you use for your marketing. The odds are pretty good that whoever’s looking for you will “like” the wrong page and also have a pretty poor opinion of your company since the ghost page isn’t providing any info about your business.

To get rid of your ghosts, go to your profile home page and look under Pages on the left hand side. You’ll see a list of any page that have you as an administrator. If you find any ghosts, go to that page, click “edit,” then “manage permissions.” At the bottom of that page, you’ll see where you can delete the page.

Ghost is gone! (Insert Ghostbusters joke here.)
