Now the following experience occurred to me when I was frankly oblivious about some random changes on Facebook page Admin role.
If most of you have noticed some changes with the Facebook user interface and admin backend functionalities for pages, you will care to understand that by default now your Facebook Page is automatically accessible via a Facebook business url as shown in the image below.
Accessing your Facebook page via this url "https://business.facebook.com/pg/TYPE YOUR BUSINESS PAGE NAME YOU EDITED YOUR CHANGED YOUR PAGE id URL TO" offers some features you can only NOTE on the page as shown by arrows in the image above.
Apart from this, there is nothing peculiar about the business page url, so how did I remove myself as an Admin from my Facebook Business Page and got by default a moderator role? Well what I got to learn was that if you access your page via the business page url and set up another business profile apart from the default profile (original owner) of the page as the new default and signing out of that business page url and login to your normal facebook profile page to access your page, you will encounter the following problems.
The only time you can easily notice this will be when you have a Facebook mobile app and are still logged into the app as shown in the image below, this role will become visible if you share your page post on your profile wall.
Another thing you will notice is that as an admin you will not be able to edit, the edit button located in the row of your admin and role will be unclickable.
Admin: Can manage all aspects of the Page. They can: send messages and publish as the Page, respond to and delete comments on the Page, create ads, see which admin created a post or comment, view insights, respond to and delete Instagram comments from the Page, edit Instagram account details from the Page and assign Page roles.
Content Creator: Anyone with the Content Creator Admin status can edit the Page, create a status update, create ads, and view Insights on your Facebook business Page, and it will look as though the Page made the update, not them personally. The status update has the Page thumbnail image and the Page name listed. A Content Creator can do everything a Manager can do except add or remove Admins.
Moderator: The Moderator Admin status allows someone to reply to comments, ban and block people, send messages, create ads, and view Insights, but not to create a post on the Page.
Advertiser: The Advertiser Admin status allows someone to view Insights and to create and manage ads on behalf of the Page.
Insights Analyst: The Insights Analyst Admin status lets someone into the Insights interface and download data from that area.
Jobs Manager: Can publish and manage jobs, view and manage applications, and create ads.
If you find yourself with this facebook business page issues, don't be alarmed as the solution is quite easy, all you have to do is to login via the Facebook business url and locate the PAGE OWNER that has BUSINESS assign to the profile drop down and click on it on the business page to make it your default, when logged out and try to login to the normal facebook business page you should have the entire business page working perfectly ok.
