How To Add An Admin To Facebook Page & Assign Roles


When you decide to hire a digital marketing agency to manage your Facebook Page and Ads Manager account the best thing to do is to assign them as an admin role instead of giving them credentials to your Facebook account. Facebook features a variety of roles so you can restrict certain permissions and levels of access within your Facebook Marketing team. Facebook allows you to add multiple admins to your Facebook Page or assign other levels of access and you as the account owner can change the roles or remove anyone from your Facebook Page at any time.

There are 5 different types of roles for people who manage your Facebook Page. When you create a Facebook Page, Facebook will automatically assign you as the admin of the page. As the admin of your Facebook Page, you can add other admins or assign other page roles depending on what level of access you decide to assign. There are no limits by Facebook to the number of people you want to assign page roles. Before you assign anyone to manage your Facebook Page and assign them a Facebook Page role, they must be Friends with you on Facebook or you have to send them a Friends Request.
