How to Add a New Admin to Your Facebook Page


Whether you’re working with someone on a new website, or on a social media project, there comes a time when you need to give admin access to someone new. Instead of handing over your Facebook login credentials (never give this to anyone!) it’s better to add that person as a new admin to your page. Figuring out exactly how to do this is a bit more confusing than it sounds, but once you do it for the first time you should be set after that.

*Please note before you start this process that the person you are going to add as the new admin must either be friends with you on Facebook or they must have liked the Facebook page that you’re adding them on.

Log into your personal Facebook account

Just go to and log in as your normally would right into your Facebook account.

Access your Facebook Page

Once logged in, look to the top right of the page the blue bar where you will see a dropdown. Under “Use Facebook as” click on your Facebook page. This will take you to your Facebook page.


Edit Your Page Role Settings

Click Settings towards the top left, then click on Page Roles on the left sidebar. From here you can enter the users e-mail address to add them as a new user.

Your options for user roles include Admin, Editor, Moderator, Advertiser, or Analyst, all with their own limitations. You’ll probably want to use Admin most of the time to give them full access, but other times you may want to limit certain parts of the page depending on who will be using it.

Make sure to click the blue Save button and you should be all set!
