Merging Mutiple Facebook Accounts

I inadvertently have 2 facebook accounts under two separate email ids.  Is there a way I can merge these two account or tranfer all info from accout 1 to account 2 ?  I tried just changing the email address but got a message that new email address was already in use (it was my other email address).

 

Any ideas ?

Nope – you can't merge them.  It needs to be done manually.  Figure out which one you want to keep and add any content from the other one … pictures etc.  Then delete the other.  As a practical matter, you should probably post a status update on the account to be deleted telling people to friend you on the other account.  

Here is the Facebook help topic on the issue:

If perchance one of your accounts is more related to a business or club of yours, you might try this new feature:

Facebook Now Allows Personal Profiles To Be Converted Into Business Pages

So, you could convert the one to a business page and keep the other personal one.

Thanks MG(Mrs. Geek), I was hoping not to have to redo all the friends but it looks like that is out of the question.
