Facebook Page Creator Can Now Be Removed

Posted on | June 10, 2010 | 6 Comments

It’s funny how things work out. We have a few facebook fan/business pages that were created a couple years ago under the account of one of our employees. We did not know at that time that facebook had a rule that the permanent admin/creator could NOT be removed as an admin of that page. This policy was troubling because it meant that if an employee, ad agency or anyone else created your page, they were potentially in control of your page forever. So when we recently parted ways with that employee, we arranged to purchase his personal facebook page from him, so that we could retain our administrative control.

Well, guess what? I look on my pages today and facebook changed that function. Now you can remove any admin, even the creator. It was ALMOST perfect timing.

So what’s the point? Well, now you can remove anyone as an admin of your page – seems as if there’s no concern now over who the creator is – sometimes you eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats you…

  • Wow. This is good news. It’s so funny, too, because we were just talking about this very topic on the panel on Saturday. Thanks for posting this.

  • yes, crazy how that went for us. Hope to see you soon!

  • That’s is a good news. Also you can create business accounts so that you don’t have to connect your personal account to a business page.

    Sounds great except when you are the creator and an ex partner in your business manages to remove you. Now I have a page for my business that I have been locked out of.

  • Thanks for the comment Joe. There will always be a flaw until facebook decides to start charging for pages. The only thing to do right now is to have employees sign a non-disclosure agreement and hope that your partners/employees are not the malicious type. Good luck!
