Note to Facebook Page Owners: Any Page Admin Is Now Removable

In a small tweak to the ownership rules of Facebook Pages that is likely to come as welcome news to many Page administrators, Facebook is now allowing any Page administrator to be removed.

Previously, the Page’s original administrator was unable to be removed – creating a headache for agencies and companies who had an employee create a Page, only to discover that they were then apparently permanent administrators.

That could be a problem if, say, that person were fired or moved on to a different role. As a result, many agencies had resorted to creating fake “dummy” Facebook accounts to serve as the creator and original administrator of the Page. Now, that’s no longer necessary.
