What are Facebook page roles?

If you are a small to medium business and have a number of people contributing to your Facebook promotions, you will need to give multiple admins access to posting on your Page, so that your page is active on a continuous basis

The page roles area allows you to invite individuals to manage your page.

To access and add page roles, click settings in your Facebook page and then select ‘Page Roles”

If you are already Facebook friends with the individuals you would like to assign page roles to, you can enter their name and select them from the drop down list that appears.

Alternatively type in an email address and select the type of role you would like to assign to them e.g. admin, editor etc. Facebook will send them an email notifying them of your request for them to become a manager of your page.

The existing page role area gives a run down of existing Page admins.

The table below outlines the types of permissions that can be assigned to individuals who will post to your business Page on your behalf.
