Adding a New User to Facebook

With over 2 billion users, Facebook has become a valuable marketing channel for businesses of all sizes. No matter who their ideal client is, Facebook is considered one of the easiest ways to find them, expose them to new products or services, and create long-term relationships with them. Even better, setting up a business page is free and straightforward. Like other social media platforms, business owners are encouraged to create the page themselves and then give access to other users to maintain security standards and guarantee future ownership.

This support article will explain the process of adding a new user to Facebook in an Admin or Editor role. The choice typically will depend on what functions the new user will be fulfilling. The administrator can do anything needed with the account at a basic level, including adding or removing new page roles. However, an editor can fulfill many of these same duties but will not be able to assign page roles. For larger marketing teams, an admin role may be requested by an account manager to provide access to other team members working on the account.

Add A Page Manager To Facebook

To add a new page manager to your Facebook Business page, follow these steps:

  • 1 Log in to the Facebook account that was used to create the company page initially.
  • 2 Once logged into your Facebook user dashboard, search for the “Pages” option in the left-hand side menu and click it to view any pages that you currently manage.
  • 3 Select the business page that you would like to add a new manager or another user to.
  • 4 Under the “Manage Page” menu on the left-hand side, search for the “Settings” option and click it to open backend features.
  • 5 For most users, the new page should already be called “Page Roles.” If it isn’t, search for the “Page Roles” option on the left-hand side menu and click it.
  • 6 Enter the new user’s email address you wish to add in the “Assign a New Page Role” section, choose your desired page role type, and click the “Add” button.

Once these steps are completed, the new page manager will receive an email asking them to accept the new role. This invitation will utilize the Facebook account that they choose the sign in with upon accepting the role. Once accepted, the new user can start fulfilling any needed duties or configuring external software that can be used to schedule social posts and much more. These permissions can easily be adjusted from this page to limit access and ensure security remains a priority for your business accounts.
