Facebook fan page administrators should be quick on the draw

29 Jun

Facebook fan page administratorsMrElshMedia (Lorrie Cesarz) and I performed this test a few months back on how to transfer administrator control of Facebook fan pages. Fan pages are generally staffed by several administrators to optimize the wall content stream and engagement.

Our Social Media Breakfast Toledo Facebook fan page has six administrators. We all chip in to speak as SMB Toledo – noting ourselves within the status (KC) – or we switch to our personal profile.

What we discovered was that even as the original owner or creator of the fan page, I could delete myself as long as there was another administrator to maintain the page.

But surprise, the backup administrator can also delete other administrators including the original administrator.

So note that you should include others to co-administrate your Facebook fan pages, but be prepared to be quick on the draw to reduce exposure after people leave the organization.

Although it’s not very social thing to do, but has anyone ever been locked out by other administrators from a Facebook fan page?
