How to Manage Roles for a Facebook Page

This article will show you how to manage roles on a Facebook page. Your Facebook page may require assistance as it grows. Several people can manage it. 

This is convenient but poses a security risk if an employee no longer works for the company, yet still has full access to its Page. 

Due to this, it is crucial to understand the different types of Page managers and to restrict access to all parts of the Page.

Facebook page roles are there to help you with that. You become the admin of a Facebook Page when you create it, which means that you can control all features and settings, and assign roles to other users

However, you’ll need to know what they do and how to manage them before asking someone else to assist you.

Once you understand how roles work, you can assign roles to the people who will help maintain your page. Access levels include admin, editor, moderator, advertiser, and analyst.  

Admin

Admins have the most control, while analysts have the least. It’s very critical for businesses to strictly limit who has this role since the admin has the most authority and access to any Page manager role. Also, the admin can operate in any way any other role can use.

Editor

Editorial roles are significant for employees who create content and manage the Facebook business Page. Editors enjoy all the privileges of admins, with the exception of setting up roles and managing settings.

Moderator

Customers can ask questions and comment on a page. A moderator cannot create content but can remove and ban people from the page, create ads and view Page Insights.

Advertiser

Advertisers can view Page Insights as well as create ads for the Page with this role.

Analyst

As an analyst can only view Facebook Page Insights and have the least amount of control over your Page. It is usually assigned to someone who works with content strategy and planning.

If you follow the steps in the guide below, you will be able to manage roles on a Facebook page.
