5. A reminder will pop up that reads: “If you’re adding a new admin to your Page, please keep in mind that they’ll have the same permission as you do to make changes to this Page.”

6. Once you have the right name, click “Add.” Facebook will then prompt you to re-enter your password.

7. Under “Existing Page Roles,” the person’s name will now show up with a red “pending” message next to it.

8. Once the person receives the notification, they can accept, and their role will show up under the “Existing Page Roles” section. This shows you each person on your page, categorized by their permissions. For example, you can have one person under Admin and one person under Editor.
