Why you MUST use Facebook new Admin Roles Feature

Facebook finally added the ability to assign roles to their business page administrators yesterday. This is a feature that is long overdue. Many businesses do not think of the potential hazard of everyone having the same authority as admins on Facebook. Before this feature was rolled out,  if you had an employee that was an admin on your Facebook that was fired or left in a disgruntled manner- they could with a few clicks of a button X you right out of your own business Facebook page and take it hostage. I have seen it happen. I am sure that there is a law here but there is some not nice people out there that could have quite a time with the control of a page of the company who just screwed them.

Please, stop what you are doing and go to your Facebook business page and make the necessary measures to keep your Facebook page safe.

  1. Very interesting! Thank you for the tip!


  2. Thanks for this... I did not realize that FB was doing this. I am the only admin on my page so I guess I have to use the top one.

    Anyway... here from the SITSGirls Saturday Share fest.
