@ybierling I am looking to change the PAGE OWNER and not Page admin. @Anon @Molly did you guys find if you can change the Pager owner ? I having difficulty creating an Ad Account for a client because I am the Page owner.
 2018-11-05 -  admin
Hello, admin is the highest role - if the page creator (at first the only admin) adds an admin and removes himself, ownership has been been fully changed. This is what is shown in the article with a complete example.
 2018-11-05 -  Tablante
Ummm you do know your post has nothing to do with page ownership which people are having trouble with. Your title is misleading and should be changed to Admin instead, if you know how to help with ownership then go for it.
 2018-11-05 -  Anon
agreed - only shows admin NOT ownership removal. Poor article.
 2018-11-05 -  Molly
Agreed that this page is misleading. I am also looking for how to remove ownership, not remove admin status. Has anyone determined how to transfer page ownership to another user?
 2018-11-05 -  admin
Hello, this is what the page is explaining. Admin owns the page.

This is all nonsense !! There is no answer to the question of how to change the owner of a business page! Not the administrator, it is clear to any student how, namely the owner!

Valeria, admin = owner, as written)

Hello, I accidentally became the owner of a page. I deleted myself as administrator. How can I delete myself as owner and there is no more owner please?
 2020-04-14 -  admin
It is not possible not to have an owner. You can nevertheless unpublish the page by going to the page with your administrator account => settings (top right) => general => unpublish the page => save the changes. The page will only be accessible by the sole existing administrator.

Hi, my company has an employee who has created a Facebook page and is now a page owner. But will not create business owner as administrator. What opportunities do we have!
 2020-08-07 -  admin
Hi Henry, the only option you have is to ask the employee to give you administrator privilege. There is no other way except to take legal action against him and prove that he stole your intellectual property mark. I know it's not what you're looking for, but that's how it works.

Hello, the company has a Facebook business page that was built last year, but no one knows who did it or who owns it. Is it possible to take over the page or at least remove and create a new one
 2020-09-16 -  admin
Dear Greta, unfortunately there is no way to find the admin of a business page or to delete it if you are not the administrator. The best way to get around the issue would be to create a new page.
 2020-11-18 -  Magi
Hello, a month ago I was removed as an admin from my personal page. I saw my account logged in from an unknown device and removed it and changed my passwords. At the moment my page has it, but it is not used and I do not have access to it and I think that no one is an administrator or at least I do not know who, but I think it is my property. Please help me because this is my main business and I am in a very difficult situation.
 2020-11-18 -  admin
Dear Maggie, only another administrator can do that. If the business is yours and you can prove it, you should contact Facebook support and ask them about it. Otherwise, there is no way to get it back, unfortunately. Change your password to strong, create a new page, and don't let anyone else be your administrator. »  More information on this link
 2020-11-19 -  Magi
Thank you for the quick feedback. How can I prove that the business is mine? I contacted FB support and they told me that they would review the case several times, but I have no answer. Can you help me, will I pay what I need?
 2020-11-19 -  admin
@Magi: you have to be patient for the answer for Facebook support, you have nothing to pay. You can prove that it is yours by showing the registration of your company or trademark. »  More information on this link

Hello. I have a little problem. I wanted to add another administrator on the Facebook page. It turned out that an error occurred. Then I thought there must be only one. And now I can't do anything like that because I've made myself an editor. Can it be undone somehow? After all, the other administrator didn't add. Please help. Regards, Natalia
 2021-01-20 -  admin
@Natalia, you cannot delete yourself if you are the only administrator. You must ask another administrator to change your role. Sincerely

Hi, i'm the creator and the actual administrator of a facebook page that has been used for a electoral campaign in France. I choose the Politicians template and the page was labelled as community. I never saw the owner tabs in the page roles. So My question is simple : do i own the page by being the creator and the only admin ? Or does it belong to anyone else ? If i'm the owner does his mean i can shut the page down ? Thank you
 2021-07-21 -  admin
Absolutely, the page is yours if you are the only administrator. On the old version of Facebook, admin = owner. On the new version, as you can see above, owner and admin are differentiated. »  More information on this link

I changed my legal name and deleted my previous Facebook page. This was linked as owner to a Facebook business. I am still admin of this group with the new name, but I cannot find anywhere to allow me access to be the page owner. Several requests to Facebook have been ignored. Is there any way I can contact Facebook to do this?
