Facebook has made a major change in Fan page administration.  The site now allows other admins to remove the “owner” admin from a Fan Page.

The advantage of this move is, if you are an employer who has a company fan page created by an employee, you can now remove that person as the owner.  I’ve had many questions from business owners over the years on that topic alone.

The DISadvantage is, if you created your own company page and invited in other admins, you can get the boot as well.

Now, more then ever, it is imperative that you allow trusted people to administer your fan page with you.  Partnering with honorable vendors and employees will ensure that your fan page remains under your control.

To remove an admin:

  • Click on Settings – on the far right corner
  • In the right side column you will see Page Roles
  • From there, you will see a list of agencies or individuals you have given access to.
  • Click on Edit of the person you no longer want administering your page, then Remove

Best practice:  Despite the change, I still recommend that you create your own fan page and invite your vendor or employee as an editor, monitor or even administrator to customize it or help maintain it.   You never know what future changes will be coming down the line.
