How to add an admin to your social media channels

Firstly, let’s start with why you may need to add a new admin to your social media accounts. 

Oftentimes, when outsourcing your social media marketing , you will need to change admin roles in order for content to actually be posted on your account. However, depending on the platform you are using, the way that you allow new admins onto your account may vary. 

Some are as simple as sharing  your login information over to us, or whoever your marketing is being outsourced to, whereas others are a little more complicated…

Which is why we want to explain to you the simplest ways to add new admins or manage account roles on ALL of your social media channels.

Instagram and Twitter:

These are by far the easiest to hand over when it comes to adding admin access to your social media accounts.

All you would need to do is share your login information to allow content to be posted on these.

Sometimes you may need to verify a new device for these social media accounts. This just requires you to input a code that the owner of the social channel will receive via text.

You will then need to navigate to the ‘admin tools’ drop down menu, on the right hand side, and select manage admins. 

You will then be able to see all of the accounts that are currently admins for your LinkedIn page.

Either on the ‘Page admin’ or ‘paid media admin’ tabs – depending on the kind of admin you want to add-  there should be a button labelled ‘add admin’. Here you can type in the name of the member, associated employee, or advertiser you’d like to add in.

Once selecting who it is you would like to add, you will have to select the type of admin role that you would like them to have. 

And you’re done! You now have a new admin on your businesses LinkedIn page. 

Facebook:

To add a new admin to your Facebook page you must be an admin yourself in order to manage page roles. First you will want to locate the ‘Pages’ menu on your feed. 

Once you have located the page you wish to add new admins to, go to settings and click ‘page roles’.

Below Assign a new Page role, type a name or email in the box and select the person from the list that appears that you would like to give a role on the page.

Finally, click the editor and select a role from the dropdown menu. All that’s left to do is click ass and enter the page’s password to confirm.
