Delete the Original Admin on your Facebook Page
Quick News for those in work in the social media world.
For over a year, Facebook Pages have been used by businesses and organizations to connect and communicate with their users. However one grave oversight was that whoever created the Facebook Page would be locked in as an admin for life.
This means if someone got fired, or left the company, the company Facebook Page would still be linked to their profile. You could add more admins, but the original administrator had the most “power” as the longest standing admin.
For over a year Facebook users were asking that this be updated through the Facebook forums but has been ignored thus far. However Facebook has finally added the ability to remove the original Facebook Page admin. Small change, but big news.
How do I Delete the Original Admin?
- First make sure there is a 2nd administrator!
- Go to your Facebook Page
- Hit “EDIT PAGE” found on the top left sidebar beneath your logo.
- Scroll Down and look at the bottom right. You’ll see a list of administrators. Just hit “Remove Admin” as seen in the image on the right.
That’s it! Hope that was helpful!
