Reasons to transfer facebook ownership

Facebook pages can be transferred to another person or organization. 


The process is similar to transferring ownership of a personal profile. Transferring ownership of a Facebook page is not complicated as transferring other types of profiles, as it involves simply changing the name on the profile. Before transferring ownership, you’ll need to ensure access to the original owner’s Facebook account.


After transferring ownership, you’ll need to transfer all of the page’s data posts, photos, and videos from your old account to your new one. You’ll also need to transfer all of the page’s followers from your old account to your new one. 


Here are some commonly cited reasons for wanting to transfer Facebook ownership:


> To protect sensitive data from being viewed by others who might not be trustworthy (e.g., ex-spouses) or malicious individuals who could take advantage of the information posted on social media sites such as Facebook;


> To maintain privacy after death;


> To get rid of embarrassing photos posted by others but now deemed inappropriate by the person who owns the account; or


> To hide embarrassing photos taken by others that later became public knowledge due to media exposure

However, once you have built up a presence on Facebook, there’s one thing you’ll definitely want to keep in mind: how to transfer ownership of a Facebook page.  A Facebook presence is valuable and should not be squandered.
