An area of Social Media which often causes confusion relates to giving someone access to a business Facebook page. Unlike Twitter/Instagram etc, rather than using a username/password system to provide access, Facebook business pages only offer admin access through the personal Facebook profile of someone who is granted access.

Once you have given admin access to the chosen person, they will then be able to post as ‘your page’.

Two key things aspects that you need to remember are:

  1. You’ll need to be an admin to manage roles for your Page.
  2. There’s no limit to the number of people who can have a role on a Page.

With that in mind, please see below for the steps which must be followed to give someone access are as follows.
