Q: Why can’t I add an admin to my Facebook page?

A: An admin for your Facebook page must have a Facebook account, whether it is a personal profile or a business account. Facebook pages are independent entities, and administrators may not be visible to those who like them. We have also observed that the person adding admin permissions to a new user must be friends with the new admin on Facebook.

Entering an email address into the “Start typing a name or email” section of the Manage Admins screen located in the Edit Profile section of your page will not allow Facebook to register that person unless he is already a Facebook member.


Q: Can I have 2 Admins on a Facebook page?

A: A Page can have as many admins as it wants. You can add an admin by visiting “Edit Page” on your Timeline, clicking “Admin roles,” and selecting “Add another admin.” Note: To become an admin, the user must like your page.


Q: Where is the admin panel on Facebook?

A: The admin panel is hidden in the upper right-hand corner of your Facebook page. You can access it by clicking on the gear icon. This will give you a menu with several different options, including “Page Roles.”

Keep in mind that Facebook is constantly changing its layout and functions, so some of these instructions may not be up-to-date. For the most accurate and up-to-date instructions, please visit the Facebook Help Center.


Q: What is the highest Facebook page role?

A: The highest Facebook page role is admin. An admin has full control over the page and can add and remove other admins.


Q: Can a Facebook page be an admin of another page?

A: A Facebook Page admin can add another admin as long as the new admin also has a Facebook account and is friends with the original admin on Facebook or the original admin knows the email address associated with the new admin’s Facebook account.


Q: How do I see who the admin is on a Facebook page?

A: Navigate to the Settings tab at the top right of the page, and find the Page roles section on the left. In the Facebook Help Center, you can read more about each of the roles and their capabilities. All role information for the Page will be visible and editable if you are the Page Admin.


Q: How can I tell who posted a page?

A: The name of the person who published will appear below the name of your Page next to Published by. Whenever a Page comment is made, the name of the person who commented will appear next to Commented on by. You should remember that only people who help manage your Page will be able to see this information.


Q: What is a custom page role on Facebook?

A: Custom Facebook admin roles, for example, allow one admin to schedule and create posts and comments while denying him the ability to publish. There is a custom Facebook admin role that allows one team member to post and comment, but not to publish.


Q: Can an editor remove an admin from a Facebook page?

A: As soon as you remove someone from being an admin, they will no longer be able to remove members or admins, add new admins or edit group descriptions or settings. Unless the group creator leaves the group on their own, the group creator cannot be removed as an admin.


Q: What’s the difference between Editor and Admin on Facebook?

A: The most powerful and controlling role is the administrator. The second most authoritative role is the editor. Editors can do everything that admins can except manage other page roles and settings. Moderators are responsible for managing people, comments, messages, and ads.


Q: Why can’t I find Page roles on Facebook?

Q: Why am I not an admin on my own Facebook page?

A: Since you are still technically a member, you are considered to be a member. It is only possible to move forward if you resign from your current position. In order to do this, click Settings in the left panel, click Page Roles (also in that panel), click Edit below your account, and then select Remove. Another possible route is to request from another admin of the Page to invite you as an admin to the Page.


Q: How do I change back to Administrator on Facebook?

A: If you’re an administrator: Tap your profile picture in the top left corner of Facebook. Click the pages. Visit your Page and tap More. To edit page roles, tap Edit settings.

How to add people to ads manager
Before you begin:

The process of adding someone to your Facebook Business Manager varies significantly from granting them admin access to their Facebook page. To leverage the full suite of Facebook advertising features, it's crucial to establish a distinct account for Facebook Business Manager and integrate all your business assets, including your Facebook page, Instagram account, website, pixel tracking code, and more.

make sure you have:
  • A Facebook Business Manager account (if you don’t have one, you can create it here)

  • A working Ad Account connected to your Business Manager

  • Payment method set up for Ad Account

How to add people to Facebook Business Manager

Step 1: Login to your Facebook Business Manager

If you don’t have a Business Manager account yet just follow the steps and create one.

Step 2: Go to business Settings tab

Business Tab Facebook

When you are logged in navigate to the settings tab and locate Business settings.

Step 3: Add people to your Business Manager


When you are in setting go to the People tab under Users on the left and click the blue Add button on the top-right

Step 4: Enter email address


Add the email of the person that will manage your Facebook advertising, typically this is the one that you are in contact with.

Make sure:

  • That you type their email correctly without spelling mistakes

  • That you give them admin access

Why is admin access the best option most of the time? If a client doesn’t have his Business Manager set up correctly we can’t start advertising right away and need to adjust every aspect of their account so that ads run smoothly.

This may include:

  • Ad account setup

  • Pixel setup

  • Conversion tracking setup

  • Domain verification

  • Aggregated events setup

Normally clients struggle to set up all of this themselves so they add us as admins and we take care of this for them.

Step 5: Assign access to your FB page


Select the Facebook page of your business and click the toggle of Manage page.

Step 6: Assign access your Ad Account

What is Ad Account:
Ad Account is what you use to run ads, all campaigns and ads you do are tied to it. It is also used to manage your payment method for ad spend.


On the left select Ad Accounts, if you have multiple select the one that you want to share and toggle Manage ad account.

Step 7: Assign access your Pixel

What is Pixel:
Pixel is a snippet of code that Facebook uses to track conversions and events on your website. A working pixel without any problems is crucial for ads to run well and report accurately.


Select Pixel on the left, if you have more select the one that you know works and toggle Manage pixel on the right.


Once you completed all three steps, click the blue invite button on the bottom-right corner and you are done.

If you have any problems make sure to let us know!
