Claim Your Facebook Places for Your Facebook Page

When checking into Places on Facebook, or urging others to do so, we often run into the issue of businesses with duplicate Pages. Turns out it happened to us again as well.
The video above will walk you through the process of correcting this error which occurred through no fault of your own. What happens is that someone, at some point, couldn’t find your page through Facebook search and created a new named page for you. Either that, or Facebook did it themselves. Or it was the aliens.
Anyway, its important to merge these pages together if you don’t want to have confused fans sending their Facebook friends to the wrong place. Not sure if this is an issue for you, use Facebook’s search bar to find out how many pages there are with your company name in them and claim any that are linked to your actual business.
I’m actually still waiting on Facebook to get back with me on the claim I made in this video. Perhaps you will have faster luck!
