How to remove admins from your company’s Facebook page

A quick guide to managing page roles when someone leaves the company

 

It’s important to realize that whoever has access to your company’s social media accounts will most likely not remain in that position their entire career. When they get promoted or leave the company, it’s important to manage their page roles and access to your company’s accounts. 

 

As a best practice, you want to remove them from the page yourself. Avoid letting the employee remove themselves from the account. If they do so and no one else has access to the account or another employee’s level of access won’t let them change anything, you’ve caused yourself a big headache.

5 tips for creating engaging social media videos

Lights, camera… Not so fast! Expensive shoots and long, comprehensive videos aren’t necessary for success.

 

Using video on social media is nothing new. Before social media, brands were hungry for polished video content.

Today, TikTok and other video social media platforms are expanding the importance of brevity and simplicity in social media videos. Vertical formats dominate, catering to mobile users. Mobile phone camera quality has improved, making smartphone quality perfect for brand content.
