In a subtle yet significant change for Facebook Page owners, the original creator of Pages can now be removed as an administrator by any other of the administrators of that Page. This was a serious issue for a number of companies who were looking to shift control of their Pages from a third-party company to someone internal. In other cases, Pages have been sold but administrators have been forced to stay the same. Regardless of the rationale for removing an administrator, doing so was never possible, until this weekend.
Facebook Pages have become the center of Facebook marketing campaigns for small, medium, and large businesses alike. Combined with Facebook ad campaigns, custom tabs, and ongoing user-engagement, Facebook Pages serve as a tool for building community, and often times result in more loyal customers, if the most recent surveys about Facebook Page customer conversion are accurate.
While the ability to remove the original Facebook Page administrators may seem like a small upgrade, it’s a feature that many Facebook Page owners have been asking for since Pages first launched. Thankfully, it’s now available. You can manage your administrators by clicking on “Edit Page” on the left-hand sidebar of your Facebook Page and then scroll down on the right to add and remove administrators.
