As a small business grows in size and complexity, it will often begin enlisting others to help support its efforts. Social media management is a natural area of any business to benefit from a professional marketing consultant. To that end, it may be become necessary for someone else to act as an administrator of a business Facebook page.
The first step in giving someone access to a Facebook page for page management purposes is to assign them an Admin role. Facebook allows a business to provide up to six different roles. The Admin role provides page administrators with the highest level of access available. The Analyst role has the lowest level of access. This step-by-step guide describes how to give a person access so they can set up and manage a Facebook page.
- Choose the role you would like to assign. The six administrative roles, described by Facebook in detail, include Admin, Editor, Moderator, Advertiser, Analyst, and Jobs Manager.
- Navigate to your Facebook Business page.
- Click “Settings” on the top right side of the page.
- On the next page, click “Page Roles” in the column on the left side of the page.
- In the space below the heading that reads “Assign a New Page Role,” type in the name of the person you want to add as an admin. If you are Facebook friends with the person, their name will pop up. Click on the name to choose it. If you are not Facebook friends with the new admin, type in the person’s email address.
- Next, select an admin role for the person from the drop down menu.
- Click “Add,” then click “Save.”
