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.

Hi, I followed your instructions and this is what I got:
Don’t have Permission
You don’t have sufficient permissions to do that.
I’m an administrator of my fan page and I’m trying to remove someone that left the company.
Any help will be appreciated.
Hi Juan – when you look at the backend of the admin page, what do you see? Can you see all the admins for the page?
You should just have to click on “Remove Admin”
Who created the page initially?
I’ve always had trouble editing and dealing with Facebook fan pages.
Yes, I have the same problem, i’ve got the same message: ‘You don’t have sufficient permissions to do that.’
I would like to remove myself from admins, but I cannot! HELP!
Any idea how this works on an Application page? The “remove admin” link doesn’t appear under the App’s admins… in all other ways the Application Page functions like a Fan page… can’t find any help links on FB related to this issue. Appreciate any insight you may have!
