How to Add an Administrator to Your Hotel Facebook Page

Managing a Facebook presence can be a lot of work. Many companies give administrative access to their professional Facebook Page to employees. A hotel owner, for example, could make a number of employees, or even partners like buuteeq, administrators of their hotel Facebook Page, to spread around the work or to help install new applications, like buuteeq’s Facebook app. Here’s how to make someone else an administrator of your Facebook Page.

WARNING: Adding another administrator to your Facebook Page will give the person full and complete control of your Page. They can make edits, upload pictures, install apps and everything else that you can do. They can even remove you as an administrator. Be very sure that you trust the person before granting administrator privileges. Note that a new administrator can only manage your Page. They can NEVER manage, edit or modify your personal Profile.

1) After logging into your personal Facebook Profile (the differences between Profiles, Pages and Places are explained in another blog post), click on the “Pages” link in the left-hand column (you will see this column ONLY if you are on your Facebook “Home” page—not your “Profile” page). You may have to click a small “more” link in order to reveal it.

7) Facebook will next ask you to type in your password. This is your personal Facebook Profile password—the one you used to log-in to Facebook. Type it in and click “Confirm”.

  • Very strange! I don’t think it is possible for a page to even exist if no one is an admin of it. Did you add a new admin to your page? Did that admin remove you? You need to contact the current admin of the page and have him/her restore your admin privileges.

  • No it worked correctly. You needed to be logged into your personal Facebook page in order to edit your pages. Every time you add a new administrator to one of your pages, Facebook asks for your personal profile password in order to verify that you, the owner, are making this change. You forgot your password or typed it in wrong and by resetting it, you were able to access your profile again. Once logged into Facebook, you were able to edit your page and make a new admin :)

  • FB says “Your password was incorrect.” every time
    whose password? the new admins or my personal page password. confusing
