Transfer Ownership Of A Facebook Business Page
So how do you transfer your prized Facebook Page ownership? The most efficient way is to first make the new owner an ‘Admin’ on your Page. Then, remove yourself as Admin.
Important Note: You must be an admin of the page and you must use a desktop computer. You can learn how to add an admin to your Facebook Page here.
For example, you can assign someone to solely handle advertising as an ‘Advertiser’ role, and restrict or allow permissions to manage budget and ad spends.
Step 3) If you accessed your Page via business.facebook, click ‘Settings’ in the top right of your Facebook Page screen. Then click ‘Page Roles’ in the left menu.
If you accessed your Page via facebook, click ‘Settings’ in the left menu. Then click ‘Page Roles’ also in the left menu.
Step 4) Type the name of the person to who you want to transfer your Facebook Page to in the box below “Assign a New Page Role”.
If you need to remove yourself you can log in and visit the same ‘Page Roles’ section to change your role to anything other than ‘Admin’.
How Do I Remove A Page Owner On Facebook?
Now you can transfer your Facebook Page but you are still wondering “how do I remove a page owner on Facebook?”
Once you’ve accessed ‘Page Roles’ click on the Admin you’d like to remove and select any role other than Admin to downgrade their permissions or remove them altogether.
Remove Page From Business Manager
How do you remove a Page from Facebook Business Manager? First, make sure you are an Admin of the Page in question.
Second, make sure the Page is not connected to any other assets in Business Manager. If so, delete these connections.
Request A Facebook Page Transfer
Sometimes things get a little dicey. For example, let’s say you have a disgruntled ex-employee or ex-boyfriend or girlfriend for that matter.
First, make sure there isn’t a valid reason for this person to withhold account access. If you are an agency, for example, make sure there are no outstanding fees from either party.
This is a very common scenario and is ripe for litigation. Make sure you are all paid up before moving forward with requesting a Facebook Page transfer.
This brings us to our next and final Facebook drama that only the true Facebook Page owner can resolve (no DNA tests required).
Facebook Page Ownership Dispute
This is a troublesome thought, imagine your Facebook Business Page just sitting there on the world wide web, with no one to manage it.
Hopefully, you installed a chatbot prior that is sending your customers, prospects, and fans happy messages while you clear up this mess.
Step 1) Go to the unmanaged Facebook Page and click the “Is this your business?” link in the top right.
Step 2) Fill in the prompts for the basic info, such as the website and physical address of your business.
Step 3) Select from the options to verify by phone, documents, or email and follow through with the supporting documents.
But what if someone else has taken the reins, what if your Facebook Business Page has fallen into the wrong hands?
If a digital agency you have worked with in the past has claimed your Page, with permission, but is now defunct or long gone… you could be in a pickle.
The best solution, in that case, is to contact the person who claimed your Page, whether it’s an old account manager, employee, or intern.
Another solution could be to create a new Page and attempt to merge the two accounts and verify you are the rightful owner in the process.
