I've got a Facebook page with half a million likes, one that sort of exploded with likes without any action on my part. After hitting about 100k likes, I began to receive messages for offers to buy my page, and have been receiving them almost daily for about a year now.

Now, I realize 500k likes is pretty valuable. However, I'm not here to ask you about prices or whether I'm going to get screwed on it. I want to know:

Does Facebook allow users to sell pages? How can I do that safely?

No, Facebook does not allow to sell Facebook pages. It is a violation of Facebook terms. See the section 4, point 9:

  1. Registration and Account Security

    • You will not transfer your account (including any Page or application you administer) to anyone without first getting our written permission.
  • but I can with written permission? does that happen? Sep 1, 2015 at 18:37
  • Yes, you need legal written permission for that from FB.

  • Thanks, still relevant information though. I'm still getting tons of messages but I'd like to keep it legal :) Sep 1, 2015 at 19:41
