Roles of a Facebook page

Before going into the details of this guide and explaining yourself how to add facebook page administrator, I want to show you what are the other page manager figures that you can consider.

  • Administrator: it is the highest role that a page manager user can cover. In addition to being able to create content and ads, manage comments and messages, view Insights data and edit the page, he can in turn appoint other administrators and manage roles. It is best to assign this role only to trusted people, as an administrator can also delete the page or change its name.
  • Editor: can create content, manage comments and messages, view Insights data and manage some page settings, such as changing the profile picture and cover, changing the order of the tabs and much more. It can also broadcast live from a mobile device.
  • Moderator: can manage comments, with the ability to delete them, send messages on the page name, create ads and view Insights data, but cannot create and publish any type of content.
  • Advertiser– Can create ads, view Insights data, and see which person created a content on the page.
  • Analyst: has the same functions as the Advertiser, but cannot create adverts.
  • Contributor for live video: has a single function, that of broadcasting live video from a mobile device.

There are no restrictions on the number of people you can add as a Facebook page manager, and the added person doesn’t have to be among your friends.
