[Facebook] Changing Admins and What They Can DoPosted on May 31st, 2012 No comments
If you have a Facebook Page for your business, but haven’t wanted to share full privileges with others on your staff, you haven’t had the choice. If you wanted to have someone else post on the Page or monitor your Page’s Insights, you had to give them complete access to everything related to your Page.
But now things have changed.
Say you want to hire someone to keep track of your social media analytics–who’s visiting from where and how they got there–but you don’t need them posting on your Page. You can now give that person access as an Insights Analyst and the only thing they can do on your Page is view the Insights.
Perhaps you want to share responsibility for responding to comments and sending messages, but don’t want them able to post directly to the Wall as your Page yet–give them Moderator privileges. Each page can have any or all of the Admins, but only one should have the Manager role (and that should be the owner!). Only Managers can add and remove admins. Here’s a brief overview of what each role can do.
By giving various levels of control over your Page, you can allow more of your staff to help out with posts, comments, ad creation or analytics without giving up ultimate control.
How to Change Admin Controls
- Open your Page’s admin panel at the top of your Page.
- Click Edit Page
- From the left column menu, click Admin Roles
- Type the names of other people you’d like to add in the open field
- Click Manager below the name to choose what kind of admin you want to add
- Click Save Changes
