So, you have just started using Business Manager to administer your Facebook Page. Great! Business Manager is a powerful tool that can help you manage your page and keep track of your page’s activity. 

But what if you need to give someone else access to your page via Business Manager?

Unlike Instagram and other social platforms, you shouldn’t just provide your Facebook username and password to someone. Of course, you can do it, but do you trust your new social media manager that much? And that is the whole point why Business Manager exists.

You can grant various accesses to people in Business Manager. But, first, they must have a personal Facebook account.

Also, to grant access to different users, you should have an admin role on your page. If you do, you can grant access to unlimited users.

However, keep in mind that you need to understand the page roles before granting access to different users. 

So let’s jump right in.

Understanding Roles in Facebook Page and Business Manager

Every page on Facebook has seven default roles:

Page Admin: Admins can manage the page, posts, and messages, create ads, see who made a post or comment, assign page roles, and add apps to the page.

Page Editor: Editors are authorised to publish and edit posts, create ads, see who made a post or comment, assign page roles except the Page Admin role, and add apps to the page. They can do almost anything a Page Admin can do, but the most critical difference is that they can’t remove/assign a Page Admin role from/to someone.

Page Moderator: Moderators can respond to and delete comments on the page, send messages, create ads, see who made a post or comment, assign page roles except the Page Admin and Page Editor roles, and add apps to the page.

Page Advertiser: Advertisers can create Facebook ads and see who made a post or comment.

Page Analyst: They can see which posts and ad campaigns are performing well and get some insights from the collected data.

Business Manager Admin: The Business Manager admin can add and remove people to/from the business and assign roles to other people in the business.

Partner Business Manager Admin: They can add people, assign ad account roles, manage ad settings, view ads, and edit payments.

However, page roles can be customised, meaning you’re not stuck with the seven default roles. Instead, you can create new custom roles and edit the permissions for each. 

For example, you could create a “Content Creator” role that allows someone to publish posts and create ads but doesn’t allow them to delete comments or messages.
