There are a lot of users who rely on Facebook for their business, brand promotion, and marketing via Facebook Page. Furthermore, there are different roles, like Facebook Page Admin, on it, and they work differently.  

So if you are wondering how to add admins to a Facebook page, we will explain different methods in the article. Now hop right in and get ready for the drive! 

What Does An Admin on A Facebook Page Means?

Having a Facebook Page has become important nowadays because whether you have your brand or online business, in general, and you want it to bloom, it can do the trick. If you want a position where one can see every change happening on the page and have complete control and access, that’s where the role of a Facebook Page Admin comes in.

Let us tell you the real deal for those who may not know exactly what a Facebook Admin is or how to add admins to a Facebook page. When you create a Facebook Page, you become the page’s Administrator by default. And this enables you to control everything on it. You are also granted different permissions to add buttons, create ads and posts, reply to comments, delete posts, ban people, post from Instagram to Facebook, and assign page roles.

Apart from Admin, there are several other roles, which one can choose from Admin, Editor, Moderator, Advertiser, and Analyst. 


As per Facebook, a page owner can’t give Page access to a grey account. And, even if they want to give Page access to someone with a grey account, they should access the Page through their personal Facebook account or create a new account. And this way, they can give the unique account access to their Facebook Page. 

Now that you know who a Facebook Page Admin is and their commands, let’s see how to add admins to a Facebook page.
