Getting an error when adding other managers to a Facebook Business Page?
The dreaded message below appears when you want to add a new manager or any other role to a Facebook Business Page. Of course in your case the [User-ID-Number] is just another long meaningless number.
We weren’t able to add all your new admins. You can only add your friends or people who already like this Page.
[User-ID-Number] could not be added as an admin. The email may be invalid, or you may not have permission to look up this person using their email.
Well, I have recently struggled with the Facebook error message above, and have come to the conclusion that there are a series of steps that you should perform to make it work.
- Make sure the new person already likes the business page.
- Send a friend request to the person you are trying to assign a Facebook role and make sure he accepts it.
- Last but definitely not least, the person should lower his privacy settings to the most public setting possible. After successfully making him a manager of the page, the settings can go back to as private as needed. (You will find these settings by clicking the button shown in the image below)
