    A friend of mine was having trouble getting Admin rights to her new advertising agency's Facebook page. When the other admin's attempted to add her, her name did not appear when they began typing.

    She had one of admin's friend me and we encountered the same issue when they tried to add me as an Admin.

    I was able to add my friend as an admin to any of my pages on my personal account, but I was unable to add her after I friended her with an alternate account and tried to bring her on as an admin of a page which that account only had admin rights.

    I'm wondering if Facebook has set a time threshold that you have to be someone's friend for a certain period of time before you can add them as an Admin. My friend has only worked at the new agency for a few weeks.

    Has anyone else experienced the inability to add new friends as admins on your pages?

    Yes, thats because Facebook do not allow you to give admin to a new friend.

    A solution to this problem is:

    1. The new admin, should like the page first.
    2. The old admin have to go to the page and click to see all the fans.
    3. If the first step was done correctly, the name of the new admin should appear at the first 1 - 10 names in that list.
    4. Click on Give Admin rights.
    5. Done!

    Hope i helped your friend.

    Lucas.

    Yeah I am Admin of pages that I am not friends with any of the other Admins, you just need to make sure she "liked" the page.

    1st the page should be liked by that person.
    then you can add by typing their name or email id.
