Is Facebook Asking You if Your Page is Inaccurate or Out of Date?

Have you received an email from Facebook asking you to update information on your Facebook Page? These emails are legitimately from Facebook and we’ve seen it twice in the past month. You have the option to change your information to their suggestion, or you can reject it. If you do not reject it, Facebook will automatically make the suggested change by the date it mentions in the email.

In the two emails we received, we rejected both suggestions to change the information.

In the first example, Facebook says the zip code for the NDSU Extension Service Page is inaccurate and they suggest we change it. We did not, as the 58103 zip code doesn’t apply to us.

In the second one, it says the
Stutsman County Facebook Page category should be changed from “Education” to “College and University”. They decided to keep the Education category.

If you do receive an email like this from Facebook, be sure to either make the suggested change or reject it by the date listed because Facebook will make the change if they don’t hear from you.
