Facebook pages are a great way of connecting with like-minded people over the platform. They’re also a great way to promote a brand or just about anything that you’d want to have a front.

After you’re done making your Facebook page, you have to publish it before it’s visible to the general public. However, just as easy it is to publish a Facebook page, it’s equally easy to unpublish one. 

In this article, we’re going over how you can unpublish a Facebook page. Note that you will need to have administrator permissions for the page you’re trying to unpublish.
