It’s important that businesses maintain control of their Facebook Pages and limit who else has access. However, a business can certainly benefit from having multiple people perform different duties to maintain and update the Page regularly. Here are the easy-to-follow directions for adding Page managers to your company’s Facebook Page.

Please note: Before you add Axia or another individual as an Admin on your Facebook page, Facebook requires that we “like” your page first. We have to do this manually, so watch for a like from one of our associates or your account manager before proceeding. It may take up to two business days to like a page. Just send us a reminder when you’re ready.

Follow these simple steps to add a Facebook admin:

1. Make sure the individual you want to add uses his/her personal Facebook account to like your Facebook business page.

2. After logging in to your personal Facebook account, go to your business page. Click on “Settings.”

Another Option:

  2. Find the user you want to add as an admin

  3. Click on the gear icon to see a drop down menu and select “Assign Page Role.”

  4. Next, select your preferred role from the drop down options: Admin, Editor, Moderator, Advertiser and Analyst

Everyone who works on your Page can have a different role depending on what they need to work on. Learn more about the different roles people can have on your Page.
