Hi my name is Brian Ken Andersen and there is apperently a filmography page for me. And now i have logged in via Facebook. Which i am Brian K. Andersen. How can i merge these?
I am completely new to this.
But as i have understood. These are different from one another. There are filmography pages, which is the Brian Ken Andersen page and then there are a IMDB account which now is Brian K. Andersen.

Hello, Brian. 

Just to clarify: is this your page? I can't seem to find any other page with a similar three-word name nor I was able to find Brian K. Andersen. Also, can you please describe the problem with more detail? I'm not sure I've pinpointed what is it, so my following recommendations all might end up being a shot in the dark.  

In general connecting your user page and Facebook page to your name page on IMDb is not obligatory, as you may edit your page as is inserting biography, filmography and links as is, for free and using your userpage. Your userpage may have a different name and is a totally separate entity to your IMDb name page.  

If you want, you might link your Facebook page as an official link. In order to do that you should press "Edit Page", scroll down, find links section and choose "Add 1 Item". Pretty straightforward, link goes into "Official site" while "Description" will house the word "Facebook". 
 

If you want to change your IMDb name page to reflect "Brian K. Andersen" that can be done by accessing "Edit Page" and choosing the very first option - "Correction" in "Name Correction or Merge". Then you can type "Brian K. Andersen" in the first field and valid explanation in the second. Latter might include link to this thread which will speed up the processing a bit. However, according to IMDb guidelines, if you were credited as "Brian Ken Andersen" that should remain as an attribute on specific credit listing. 


There is also IMDb Pro, a paid service which allows for a better representation, including adding contacts visible to other Pro users, photographs, etc. Photographs might be suspended if the service goes unpaid and shuts off, but will be reinstated as soon as the new payment will arrive. Another option to have photographs on your page is by photographs from the title linked to your name page. In cases like that there's no choice on which photograph will appear as the main one.

The help at https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/general-information/what-s-the-difference-between-an-imdb-page-and-user-profile/GHQEDYZ5DJ5Y8G5S should explain the difference between the two page types and why it is normal to have both.
