You may want to transfer Facebook pages to others for various reasons. For example, you need to make a page transfer when you sell your page to a company or someone else. Other than that, you may want to transfer it to another account of your own. Page transferring on Facebook is a natural process, but many users do not fully know the subject.

When you create a Facebook page, you have complete control. You become the default admin of the page and can access features like adding other managers, changing the page settings, and more. These features include transferring page management to someone else. If you don’t know how to do this, you have come to the right place. Contrary to popular belief, the process of transferring accounts is quite simple.

The Management of a Facebook Page

You must first be an administrator to transfer a Facebook account to another account. More than one administrator can exist on a Facebook page, and only the highest authority can make the account transfer. The main page admin ranks are; Manager, Editor, Moderator, Advertiser, and Analyst.

People with analyst authority can only see who shared a post, who commented on behalf of the page, and the page statistics. Advertiser authorizations can create ads for the page in addition to Analyst privileges. In addition to the Analyst and Advertiser privileges, the moderator can make correspondences on behalf of the page. The editor can create and delete page posts in addition to all these powers.

The only remaining role is the Manager. People with this role can access and change all features of the page. Only accounts with administrative authority can perform the account transfer. If the page is yours, but you are not authorized, you need to get the executive power back from others or ask them to do this transferring action for you. You can add an account as an administrator from the Page Tasks section in the Settings section of the page.

    Hi Dennis. I have a similar problem, though not identical.
    I have a personal page that I’ve had for years, but don’t use these days. I also have a page as an author, which I access daily. Somehow, the two have become linked, and whenever I try to interact with my author page, more often than not FB swaps me over to my personal page. This is not helpful.
    I tried to delete the personal page, but as soon as I log in on my author page FB reactivates the old one again. They even had different email addresses but that didn’t stop them. Do you know if there is any way to delete the old page?

    So if I move a Facebook page to another account, will I be able to use it more efficiently? That sounds like a great feature.

      You will no longer be an admin when you move a Facebook page to another account. If you want to continue as an admin, just add a new admin, and don’t remove your account from the page roles. In this way, you will be able to use it more efficiently.

    I need to move all content I posted over the years on a FB where I am not owner but have admin status to a new page which will be mine. I have to create that page and worry about using same email address and the likes. Need guidance! I am not sure if I can move the thousands comments with me but at least my hard creative work…
