Groups, pages and events are all functions that facilitate the enhanced networking and connecting that go beyond basic Facebook posts. An admin is a Facebook member who is responsible for the creation and management of content related to a group, page or event. While the original creator is considered the admin from the start, it is possible to add more admins as needed to manage large numbers of users. If your group, page or event requires you to enlist additional help, you can add admins in a few easy steps.

Tips and warnings

  • You can add an unlimited number of admins to Facebook groups, events or pages. Only a current admin has the ability to add an admin to a group, event or page.
  • Only add trusted people as group, event and page admins since all admins have complete access and can delete admins, add new admins and make changes to descriptions and settings.
