I have two accounts on Facebook, can I merge them?

My Facebook account was locked due some explicit content (somebody hacked my account). So, I created a new account, but most of my friends are connected to the first account. In the meantime, I requested and followed the steps to recover my Facebook account. Now I have several different friends in both accounts.

Is there any means to merge my accounts?

As Facebook help center reports merging two Facebook accounts is not possible yet, but Facebook provides you with merging duplicate pages option:

We don't currently offer a way to merge two accounts. Before you close any of your accounts:

  • Download the information you've added to the account you don't want to keep (messages, pictures, friends' Facebook URLs, etc.)

  • Add the account you're keeping as an admin for any Groups or Pages you manage

Once you've moved all of your info onto a single account, please delete your duplicate account.

If you don't know how to delete your excess Facebook account see this question already asked on webapps.
