What happens when you hide a Facebook page?

So what this means is that if a regular visitor tries to open the Facebook page he won’t see any content, Facebook will say that the Facebook page doesn’t exist.

Only Facebook page admins or anyone with task access to the Facebook page will be able to see the FB page and all of its content that has been previously published on the Facebook page.

As opposed to deleting a Facebook page, when you unpublish it, no content or likes will be deleted, when you unhide the Facebook page, it will be just like when you have hidden it. You will have the same amount of followers, all you content with all the engagement will be back.

So you should hide the Facebook page if you want to only temporarily hide a Facebook page, although you can leave the FB page hidden indefinitely.
