What would you do if you lost access to your organization’s official Facebook Fan Page? Or what if the only person with access one day becomes a disgruntled employee or volunteer? Adding multiple admins to your organization’s Fan Page is very important for many reasons.

If there is only one admin …

  • and that admin loses their login information for the Fan Page it may take several attempts and several days for Facebook to reset your password.
  • and that admin leaves your organization, then the access to your page is also gone.
  • and that admin goes on vacation or suddenly wins the lottery or has a personal emergency that causes them to take a leave of absence from work, then access to your page is gone.
  • then only one individual can add or edit information on your page.

and the list goes on!

There are two very simple ways to add additional admins to your Fan Page.

First.

1)      The current admin needs to login to the Fan Page.

2)      Choose edit page in the top of the page or in the top right corner of the page.

3)      Select Manage Admins from the left navigation bar.

4)      Simply enter the email address of the individual you would like to add. Their profile will appear.

5)      Save changes.

Second.

1)      On the left navigation of the primary page, under your organization’s profile image you will see “XX people like this.” Click this link.

2)      All the individuals that like your page will appear. Simply click “Make Admin” next to anyone that should have administrative rights to your Fan Page.

Follow the same process to remove an admin. Under manage admins you will see “Remove” and in your friends list you will see “Remove Admin” next to the names of all current administrators.

Remember: It is best practices to have at least two administrators at all times!
