How to change your Facebook administrator from a personal to professional account

Innovative educators know it's not a great idea to use your personal account to administrate Facebook pages or groups that you are using for your school i.e. school page, library page, sports page. However, for some, especially us early adopters, you may have a page that has been up and running for years using your personal account.

Don't worry! Switching it to a professional account is easy!

Step 1 - Select "Manage Admin Roles."

Step 2 - Select "Add Another Admin"
This is where you add a Facebook profile that has been set up for professional purposes and is not tied to a personal account.

Step 3 - Type in the name or email of the person you want to add. This person must currently "Like" the Facebook page to be added.

Step 4 - Click the "x" to remove yourself as the administrator.
