Facebook Page Admin Roles and Privacy
Changing and viewing any settings, content, and features of a Page on Facebook is the responsibility of the Page Administrators. The person who created the Page originally is automatically assigned the role of the Managing Administrator, which allows control and editing of any aspect of the Page, including the deletion of the Page. As Pages began to be used by larger organizations and marketing agencies, organizations needed to give multiple users the ability to edit and view Pages. This created the need for additional Administrator roles and the need to place limits on what additional administrators could edit and view.
Currently Facebook has five Admin roles; Manager, Content Creator, Moderator, Advertiser, and Insights Analyst. To add, change, or remove Admins, login to Facebook, click the down arrow in the upper right, and click on the Page you want to manage in the list of Pages in Use Facebook as (Page name). Then click on the Edit Page button on the top of the screen. You will see the options displayed in this screen shot, then select Admin Roles. Additional Admins can be added from this screen, and their role assigned from the drop list by clicking the Manage link. To assign an Admin enter the email address of the person you want to assign as an Admin. The person must be a user on Facebook. Only Managers can edit Admin roles, and I recommend assigning a trusted friend or co-worker as a second Manager Admin, just in case you cannot get to your account for any reason.
Here are the different permissions for each type of Admin, with additional features for each level from Insights Analyst, with the fewest permissions, to Manager, which has all permissions.
- Insights Analyst - View Insights
- Advertiser – Create Ads, View Insights
- Moderator – Respond to and Delete Comments, Send Message as the Page, Create Ads, View Insights
- Content Creator – Edit the Page and Add Apps, Create Posts as the Page, Respond to and Delete Comments, Send Message as the Page, Create Ads, View Insights
- Manager – Manage Admin Roles, Edit the Page and Add Apps, Create Posts as the Page, Respond to and Delete Comments, Send Message as the Page, Create Ads, View Insights Page
The Page Timeline can display Featured Page Admins, Pages, or both. The name and Profile Picture appear on the top right of the Page Timeline and are public is they are Featured. New Pages have no featured Admins. This option needs to be selected by a Manager Admin for an Admin's profile to be visible. When an Admin is Featured, the About section of the Page will show his or her Profile Picture, and clicking on the Picture will display any public Timeline information about the Admin. The Profile Picture of the Page on which the Admin is Featured will appear on the personal Timeline of the Admin, with a link to the Page. The personal profile privacy settings determine what personal profile information is Public and visible, and are managed by the Admin in the user's Privacy settings, not on the Page. To feature an Admin, In the Edit Page screen, click on the Featured navigation link in the left column. Click on the Add Featured Page Owners if no Admin is currently Featured, or click on Edit Featured Page Owners if a Page Admin is already featured and add the Admin to the Featured list.
