How to Edit Page Roles on a Facebook Business Page
Step #1. Find the Existing Page Roles section of the Page Roles menu
The Existing Page Roles section shows you each person on your page, categorized by their permissions.
For example, you can have multiple people under Admin and one person under Moderator.
Step #2. How to change existing page roles
Existing Page Roles are organized by how many permissions they hold.
You can also use this menu to edit the permissions for each person on your page. So if you already have someone as an Editor, you can change them to an Admin by clicking on the “Edit” button on the right.
When you click “Edit,” a drop-down menu will appear that lets you choose another role for that person. This way, there’s no need to add them to your page again.
You can also use this part of the menu to remove people from your page.

Are You Marketing on Facebook?
If you’re a digital marketer, chances are that one of your main channels is Facebook.
Did you know that you can use Facebook Messenger for business? Whether you answered “Yes” or “No” doesn’t matter. What matters is that more than 1.5 billion people actively use Facebook Messenger chat.
However, less than 1% of businesses are engaging with their audience on this proven channel.
Therefore, Messenger presents a rare opportunity to engage with consumers on an untapped and highly engaging marketing channel.

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: 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.

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.
