How to give access to a Facebook page

There may come a time for when you need to give access of your Facebook page to another user. I don’t know why, maybe you hired a social media manager? Or you have a “friend that knows how to do Facebook stuff” perhaps. In any event, this process should help you out.

Security Warning

Do not give access of any digital asset to someone you don’t know. Always ensure you are able to verify the identity of someone requesting access. This is pretty common stuff but to cover all the bases and just to be safe than sorry we had to say it.

There are 3 dead-simple steps to getting this done:

  1. While on your page, navigate to the ‘Settings’ option in the top right
  2. From there, head to ‘Page Roles’
  3. Then you’re going to select ‘Assign A New Page Role’ and assign a user to the page by typing in their email

Understanding Facebook Page Roles

Okay, so we have ripped this from Zuckerberg himself

Admin Editor Moderator Advertiser Analyst Live Contributor
Manage Page roles and settings
Edit the Page and add apps
Create and delete posts as the Page
Can go live as the Page from a mobile device
Send messages as the Page
Respond to and delete comments and posts to the Page
Remove and ban people from the Page
Create ads, promotions or boosted posts
View insights
See who published as the Page

If you wish to give someone one of these roles this is how you go about it.
If you’re an admin:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page.
  2. Click Page Roles in the left column.
  3. Type a name or email in the box and select the person from the list that appears.
  4. Click Editor to select a role from the dropdown menu.
  5. Click Add and enter your password to confirm.

Keep in mind that if someone is not your friend on the platform they will have to accept your invitation.

In order to change someone’s role, the steps are as follows.
If you’re an admin:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page.
  2. Click Page Roles in the left column.
  3. Click Edit next to the name of the person whose role you want to change
    and then select a new role from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click Save. You may need to enter your password to confirm.

If you are are a new admin you may have to wait up to seven days before you are granted the ability to remove or alter the role of a fellow admin.

So there you have it! Follow these simple steps and you should have no problem managing the administrative roles people have on your page.
