How Dealerships Can Claim Their Unmanaged Facebook Pages

A Facebook Page may exist for your dealership even if someone from your business didn’t actually create it. For example, when someone checks in to a place on Facebook that does not have a Page, an unofficial Page is created to represent that location.

If the Page is unmanaged, you’ll see Unofficial Page below the Page’s cover photo. You can request to claim the Page and become its admin, or you can merge that Page into a Page you already manage for your dealership.

Keep in mind that you may be asked for information to verify your relationship with the business, such as business phone number, business email or business documents.

Note that Pages that represent geographic locations (ex: New York City, Tampa, New Zealand) can’t be claimed.

How to find your additional unclaimed dealership Pages?

  1. In the Facebook search bar, type in the dealership’s FULL name.
  2. Your search will populate with any additional Pages tagged under ‘Places’ or ‘Pages’.
  3. Open up the INCORRECT Page(s) in separate tabs on your browser. This will help to save this search open on a different tab so that you can navigate back to your search results when attempting to claim any additional Pages.
  4. Once you are on the Page, click the button “Is this your business?” next to the words Unofficial Page.
  5. Select the first option and follow the instructions prompted on the screen.
  6. Repeat these steps for any additional Pages that might have been created. This will come in handy with that tab that you left open.
