How to add someone to your business Facebook page

Note: These directions and screenshots are from desktop view, but the steps are similar on mobile.


Step 1:

Navigate to your business Facebook page and click "Settings" under the navigation on the left-hand side of your screen.




Step 2:

Click "Page Roles" under the navigation on the left-hand side of your screen.





After you click on "Page Roles" this is what your screen should look like:



Step 3:

To assign a new role to someone, start typing in their name or email in the box under "Assign a new Page role". Once you've found the correct profile, select it and move on to step 4.


Note: It's easier to find a personal page if you're already friends with them on Facebook. You also cannot add a business page to manage your page here, only personal pages.




Step 4:

Click the drop-down menu to the right of their name and select the role you'd like to give them.


The Page Role options are:


Admin: "Can manage all aspects of the Page. They can publish and send Messenger messages as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, post from Instagram to Facebook, create ads, see who created a post or comment, view insights, and assign Page roles. If an Instagram account is connected to the Page, they can post from Facebook to Instagram, respond to and delete comments, send Direct messages, sync business contact info and create ads."


Editor: "Can publish content and send Messenger messages as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see who created a post or comment, post from Instagram to Facebook, and view insights. If an Instagram account is connected to the Page, they can post to Instagram from Facebook, respond to and delete comments, send Direct messages, sync business contact info and create ads."


Moderator: "Can send Messenger messages as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see who created a post or comment, and view insights. If an Instagram account is connected to the Page, they can respond to Instagram comments, send Direct messages and create ads."


Advertiser: "Can create ads, see who created a post or comment, and view insights. If an Instagram account is connected to the Page, they can create ads."


Analyst: "Can see which admin created a post or comment and view insights."


Custom: "These people have a combination of permissions. Go to Business Manager to manage them."



Step 5:

After you have selected the appropriate Page Role and click "Add", you will be asked to enter your Facebook password to finish the process.



The individual you've invited to manage your Page will receive a notification to accept their new role. They must accept the Page invite before they can make any changes to your Facebook Page.



How to remove or edit someone who has already been added to your business Facebook page


Now, if you would like to edit someone's role or remove them from your Page completely, here is how you do that...



On the same "Page Roles" page, scroll down until you see the name of the person you would like to edit. Click the drop-down menu to select their new role and click "save", or select "Remove" under their name to remove them from the Page completely.


Note: Only Page Owners or Page Admins can make these changes.
