Helping someone set up a Facebook fan page – either as a personal favor or as a paid consultant – doesn’t have to mean that you must become personal Facebook Friends first. All a person needs to do in order to be made an Admin of a page is to “Like” that fan page.
Here’s how to add an admin to a Facebook fan page without being personal Facebook Friends:
3 Steps to Adding an Admin to a Facebook Fan Page
1. Click Settings on the right side of the white admin bar near the top of your Facebook Page.
2. Click Page Roles on the left side.
3. Type the name or email address of the person you want to add to your Page. Select the level of permissions from the drop-down section to the right of that field. Editor is the default.
There are 5 roles, in descending order: Admin, Editor, Moderator, Advertiser, and Analyst. Each role has fewer abilities on the Page. For information on what abilities comes with each role type, visit this link.
Connecting with someone on Facebook on a personal level is not always comfortable, appropriate or what’s best for either person. Adding a Facebook fan page admin via the page’s LIKEs means that you can avoid any potential awkwardness when helping someone setup their business’ fan page.
