Some businesses will ask a member of their team, a VA, or a marketing consultant to set up their Facebook page. The best way to do this is to link the page to the Facebook personal profile of the person who owns the business, this ensures that a few years down the line the owner of the page (and the business) who is likely to remain the same keeps control of the Facebook page.
However lots of businesses haven’t done it this way and the ownership of the Facebook page will sit with an ex-employee or the VA or the marketing consultant.
There is no need to panic!
To ‘gain’ ownership of a page you simply need to be an admin.
If you are an admin you can delete other page admins or editors from the page and it becomes under your control.
Simply go into Facebook – settings – page roles and click the ‘x’ next to the name you wish to remove.
You’ll be asked to enter your password (that’s your personal FB login) and then, that’s it, you’re done!
So for all of you business owners out there, take 2 minutes to ensure you are an admin on your business Facebook page so that if you do need to ‘take ownership’ it’s a quick and easy process.
