How To Assign User Roles (Admin Permissions) On A Facebook Business Page

Facebook business pages are awesome. They are proven to drive traffic to your website, generate calls for business, and can even be a very effective platform to sell your products and services from. However, once business begins to pick up, you may find yourself too busy to post to your Facebook business page as much as you’d like. This is where admin user roles make sense. Adding another Facebook user to help manage your Facebook business page can help you save time and allow you to do what you do best – run your business. Assigning users to your Facebook business page is super simple. You just need to know where to look in your page to do it. Follow these easy steps to start assigning user roles for your employees, friends, family, and whomever else you trust to help spread your message on Facebook. NOTE!!! The people who you assign to manage your Facebook business page must “like” your business page before you can assign them a user role. Make sure they do that before you proceed. Otherwise, you won’t be able to assign user roles to them.
