  • It will open up a menu also called “Page Roles. On this page, you can manage every role on your page.
  • In the “Assign a New Page Role” section, start typing the name of the person you want to assign to the page. The drop-down menu will offer you suggestions and you can choose the person you want from there.
  • Click the menu next to their name to select the “Admin” option. You can set a number of different roles, each with different permissions.
  • A reminder will pop up that reads: “If you’re adding a new admin to your Page, please keep in mind that they’ll have the same permission as you do to make changes to this Page.”
  • Once you have the right name, click “Add.” Facebook will then prompt you to re-enter your password to make sure it’s you that is making the change.
  • Under “Existing Page Roles,” the person’s name will now show up with a red “pending” message next to it.
