How to Add an Admin to Your Facebook Page

As your Facebook Fan page grows and develops you will find that you need to spend more time updating content and interacting with your users. In this case, it is often necessary to assign an additional administrator who has he same privileges, control and responsibilities as you. Remember, the person you assign as admin must already have an active Facebook account and you must also have an active Facebook Fan Page.

Assigning an additional admin is quite simple, just follow these three simple steps:

  1. Go to your Facebook Fan page. Click on “Settings” on the top right side of your screen next to help.
  2. You will be directed to the Settings page. Click on “Page Roles,” identified with the icon of a person.
  3. You will be directed to the “Page Roles” section. Click on “add another person.” The default job role is for “editor” but if you click on the blue underlined text other roles will appear that you can choose from. You can then assign an admin role. Simply type in the name of the additional admin. Facebook should immediately recognize the name. Click save.

It is important to remember that an additional admin will have the same level of control as you. So only add another admin when it is completely necessary and you fully trust that person. Admin privileges include being able to manage page roles and settings, ability to edit, add apps, respond to messages and ban people.

If you find that you are not sure you want to assign this level of control to someone there are other roles you can choose from including editor, analyst, moderator and advertiser. All these have different levels of privileges so make sure you read up on each one to find the best role that fits with your collaborators.
