How to Add People to Facebook Pages

by Andrea Ruiz

Facebook is a social networking website that allows users to create personal accounts with which they can share photos, news and information with their personal network of friends. Facebook also allows users to create pages for businesses, public personalities, charitable causes and other public entities. The page creator's account is the administrator by default, giving the page creator the ability to edit, add and delete content on the page. However, Facebook allows you to easily add an unlimited number of people as administrators to your Facebook page.

1

Log in to the Facebook account that administers your Facebook page.

2

From the home screen dashboard, click the "More" link under the "App Requests" option, which should appear in the left column. Doing this rolls out further menu options.

3

Click the "Ads and Pages" link in the newly revealed menu. This will take you to your page administration dashboard. You should see a list of all pages to which you have administrative rights. If you don't see your page list by default, click the "Pages" link across the top menu to display your pages.

4

Click the "Edit Page" link under the name of the page to which you want to add a new administrator.

5

Click "Manage Admins" in the left column on the page editing dashboard.

6

Type the name of each person you'd like to add as an administrator to your Facebook page. If these people are on your friends list, their names will automatically populate. If they aren't on Facebook, they must create a Facebook account before they can become administrators of a Facebook page. Add an administrator and simultaneously invite that person to join Facebook by typing the individual's email address in the blank field.

7

Click the blue "Save Changes" button to save the new administrator settings.

Tip

  • check You can add multiple people as administrators for your page all at the same time by clicking "Add another Admin" and typing the name or email addresses of each administrator before clicking "Save Changes."
