    I've read a few times on here people handing over admin access on their pages, either to get someone else to promote their page or just because they trusted someone else, and sometimes that doesn't always work out so well with the ease of removing even page founders as admin.

    Here's a little tip to avoid your page ever being hijacked I haven't ever seen suggested here: If you really must make someone else admin on your page, first of all install another of your own spare profiles as admin. Then deactivate that secondary profile and it's invisible but still retains full admin rights. Should any problems occur, just reactivate that profile (as straightforward as logging in with it again), and bam the page is back in your control to remove whoever you like again.

    Of course the best way to safeguard your page in the first place is to not trust anyone you don't know with admin access, but this is also useful given the rate of account deactivations these days. I've come across plenty of folk who've lost an otherwise profitable page just because they lost the profile(s) they had as admin on the page. An easy way to avoid that is to again have a backup deactivated account installed as admin, with an unassociated IP from any other page admin account. That way, you lose your primary admin account, the backup profile is always there to protect the page from going under. This all works just as well with groups.

    Excellent tip. I've just started experimenting with pages myself, so I'll definitely be using this:)
