Facebook 101: How to Add and Remove Admin from Your Facebook Page
For each facebook page, there can be more than one admin. In order to assign somebody as an admin to your page, he needs to be a fan of the page first. Then as the page creator, you can find him within the list of ‘People who Like’ and ‘Make him Admin’:
During the process, you will be warned about the same control both of you will have over the fan page. If you stick to the plan, just hit ‘Make Admin’ to confirm your decision:
If you changed your mind, you can always revoke his admin right easily by ‘Remove Admin’:
You can do so inside the Page Dashboard too. Just go to Edit Page > Look for Admin at the right column, middle area for Admins> Remove Admin:
But, that’s not all. Recently we have been told that there is a slight change regarding the admin removal issue. Before this, the original creator of a page cannot be removed. Now even sub-admins are able to remove the page creator (transfer admin right) if required.
The reason why Facebook is changing this is probably due to many requests made by business owners who want to regain their control over their pages from developers, ex-employees etc. As much we are welcoming this change, but it does alert us to be extra careful before electing a new admin, for now ‘trust’ is the main element to ensure he or she won’t kick you out of your very own facebook page after becoming one of your admins.
