How to Add an Admin to Your Facebook Page

Facebook business pages work differently than other social media accounts. With Instagram, for example, you login as your business Instagram account then use the platform completely as your business. With Facebook, however, you login with your personal account and visit your Facebook page to use it. So you end up using your Facebook page as an “alias” while logged in as your personal account.

If you want someone else to be able to post to your Facebook page, set-up ads, and so on, they need to be added as an admin so they can login to their own account and be able to access your Facebook page. You can do this on desktop or mobile.

Why you’d want to add someone to your Facebook page.

I recommend having at least two people on your page just in case something happens to your personal Facebook account. (Shelby is my husband and Nutmeg Brown is the account I let my interns use if they don’t have a Facebook account of their own.)

If you decide to hire someone to manage your Facebook page or you have an employee who can help, always add them as an admin or editor. Never give someone login information for your personal Facebook account.

Scroll down to Assign a New Page Role and type in the name or email address of the person you want to add. Click the drop-down and select their role.

The drop-down has the following options:

Admin- Can manage all aspects of the Page. They can: send messages and publish as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see which admin created a post or comment, view insights, respond to and delete Instagram comments from the Page, edit Instagram account details from the Page and assign Page roles.

Editor- Can send messages and publish as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see which admin created a post or comment, view insights, respond to and delete Instagram comments from the Page and edit Instagram account details from the Page.

Moderator- Can send messages as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see which admin created a post or comment, view insights and respond to Instagram comments from the Page.

Advertiser- Can see which admin created a post or comment, create ads and view insights.

Analyst- Can see which admin created a post or comment and view insights.

I mostly assign someone as an Admin and Editor. An Admin has the same rights as you do, so be sure you only assign someone as an Admin if you want them to have complete access to their page.
