Use Facebook as Fanpage admin

ADVERTISEMENTS

Ideally when you comment or post on Facebook Fanpages activity (that you admin), your user profile is shown as admin. You can easily switch this to fanpage admin using “Use Facebook as page” option. After activating this option, all comments and activity will be attributed to you as fanpage admin and not to your facebook user profile.

Example for “Use Facebook as page” option

For example: Facebook user ‘Davinder’ (has created and) is admin of ‘tothepc’ fanpage. While commenting on tothepc activity, admin will be displayed as ‘Davinder’. You can switch and display ‘tothepc’ admin by using ‘facebook as page’ option. This will prevent showing ‘Davinder’ as admin for fanpages activity.

How to use Facebook as fanpage admin option

1. Login into Facebook and open your fanpage or user profile webpage.

2. Then goto Account > Use Facebook as page option at top right.

3. Then click Switch button next to fanpage whose admin you can want to display. Now all comments and activity will show fanpage admin instead of your default user profile as admin.

    i can’t post in my fan page that i’ve made using may main account.. if i post the name of the fan page will appear.any help?

  2. I cant remove fb page admin! :(

  3. Doesn’t work to like group pages, so useless. If I try I get stopped with the message:

    “To access this page, you’ll need to switch from using Facebook as your page to using Facebook as yourself.”

    Any ideas?

    • I have the same problem. I have tried many and many times but I have always the same message : “To access this page, you’ll need to switch from using Facebook as your page to using Facebook as yourself.”

      Did you find a way to make the switch working ?

  4. At least once a day, I have to change these settings. It’s like Facebook up and undoes what I change. I follow your steps above, and then 3 hours later, I have to do it all over again. I’m tired of it! I quit using my personal acct for a reason, only to see my name instead of my fan page show up when I comment somewhere. Frustrating!!
