Is it possible to delete a Facebook page via their API? I've looked all through the documentation and can't find anything

This is not a situation I've run into myself, so I also did a bit of digging.

As expected, it does not look like you can delete a Facebook page via their API -that's a lot of risk/liability for them and they typically like things like this done directly on the platform so they know the person completing the action has full admin rights and access. I can't think of a good reason this would be an option, especially one that would benefit Facebook as a platform.

Yeah, that makes sense. Especially when considering they only allow 30 businesses removed from the business manager per day.

For sure. I think it's likely more to cover themselves than their users, but it's definitely a safeguard.
