Having a facebook business page is good for your business. In order to create one, you need to first have a personal facebook account. You log in to your personal facebook account and then click the link to create a business page. The person who creates the page is the administrator.
Let’s say you create a business page, and now you want to have someone else help you edit it. To avoid having them logging into your personal facebook account to do the editing, you need to add them as another administrator to the page.
Many of my clients have set up facebook business pages, and they then approach me to help them customize them – adding custom boxes, photos and banners. On other occasions, a client might ask me to set up a business page for them, and then I need to add them as an additional administrator, so that they can log in and make changes.
Here is the illustrated version of how to add additional administrators to your business page.
I am using my business page as an example.
Step 1: Go to facebook.com and, logged in as the person who created the page, browse to the business page.
Step 2. Click on the edit page link, found under the image on the left. (see image below)
Step 3: Once you get to the next page, in the right hand column, about halfway down, it lists the administrators of the page, and there is a link for adding a new administrator. Click on that link. (see image below)
Step 4: If the new administrator is already a facebook friend of yours, just type in their name and select them. If they are not your facebook friend, or don’t have a facebook account, then enter their email address in the field provided “Add Admins Via Email”.
Then click on the blue “Add Admins” button. (see image below)
The person you have chosen will receive an email notifying them that they have been selected to help administrate the facebook page.
The subject of the email will look like the picture below (but with their name instead of mine and the name of the business page they’ve been added to):
The body of the email will look similar to the one below (but with different names), and they should click on the link to view the page.
If they are not already a member of facebook, they will be prompted at that point to create a facebook account. They need to have a personal facebook account in order to administrate the business page. If your chosen administrator already has a facebook account, they can just log in to proceed. If they don’t have a facebook account, then they can click on the link provided to sign up for one.
And that concludes how to add additional administrators to your facebook business page.
