Facebook Page Admin Troubles Solved

Facebook Admin PageI recently had some issues adding an admin user to a Facebook page I created. A quick Google search told me I wasn’t the only one. It took me some time, but I finally figured it out.

I had the other person “like” the page. On the “likes” list, you see a little button to Make Admin next to each user. Clicking it did nothing. Going to manage admins and adding the person by name did nothing. Frustrated, I went over to Google and found no answers, just more people as perplexed as me.

Not being one to give up, I kept at it all day and finally figured it out. If you are not “friends” with the person you are trying to assign admin rights to, then you must use the Manage Admins page and put in their email address, not their name. It doesn’t matter if they have liked the page or not. If you don’t have a connection to them, you need the email address they used for facebook. Simple as that.

  1. Unfortunately, the person who has been added as an admin, doesn’t get the information to accept at all. What now? Added as an email, I don’t wan’t to have this person as “friend”.

    1. Make sure you use the same email address they use for Facebook. If you have contact with the person off Facebook, you might just ask if they see the admin panel now. The only thing I can think of is have they liked the page yet? Maybe that needs done first. It is a quirky system for sure so I wouldn’t count on it working the way it should.
