What are the Facebook page roles and why you should care?
If you are a Facebook page admin you can assign Facebook Page Roles on classic Facebook pages to people who you add to the Facebook page. This is an important feature as with Facebook page roles you can have full control over what these people can and can’t do on the page.
As a Facebook admin, you can change the page role of a specific person anytime you want or you can also remove the Facebook page role he or she has.
Different Facebook page roles on Facebook
Currently, with classic Facebook pages you can assign the following Facebook page roles:
- Facebook page admin
- Facebook page editor
- Facebook page moderator
- Facebook page advertiser
- Facebook page analyst
Facebook page admins can basically do anything with the Facebook page and they are the only ones who can assing and remove Facebook page roles. Facebook page analysts have the most limited access to the Facebook page.
