  • The person is not on Facebook or uses another email for his Facebook. In this case, contact the person and ask for his email or ask him to sign up for Facebook if he really wants to be a Facebook page editor.

Before you would add someone as an editor to the Facebook page, it is important to keep in mind what a Facebook page editor can do on the FB page. Here are some of these tasks:

  • Edit the Facebook Page and add apps
  • create, delete and edit Facebook posts
  • send messages as the page
  • make Facebook posts ads
  • respond to comments or delete them
