How to Add Admins to a Facebook Group

This article discusses how to become a moderator and admin in a Facebook group as well as the distinctions between the two positions.

How to Make Someone an Admin on a Facebook Page

A group’s admin has the most authority. They have the authority to add and remove administrators and moderators as well as accept or reject membership requests, among other duties.

Pages that are members of your group can’t be admins.

  1. Click Groups in the left menu. If you don’t see Groups, click See More.

  2. Select your group.

  3. Click Members from the menu on the left.

  4. Click the three-dot menu icon next to the person you want to make an admin.

  5. Select Make admin.

  6. Click Send Invite.

  7. That person will receive a notification; you’ll either get an alert when they respond or your admin list will update.

  8. To cancel an invitation, go to Members > Invited Admins & Moderators, click the three-dot menu icon next to the name, and select Cancel Admin Invite.

  9. To remove someone as an admin, select Remove as Admin from the three-dot menu next to their name.

How to Make Someone a Moderator on a Facebook Page

Moderators can do nearly everything an admin does; the main exception is that they can’t make members admins or moderators.

  1. Click Groups in the left menu. If you don’t see Groups, click See More.

  2. Select your group.

  3. Click Members from the menu.

  4. Click the three-dot menu icon next to the person you want to make a moderator.

  5. Select Make Moderator.

  6. Click Send Invite. That person will receive a notification; if they accept, the list of moderators will update on the group page.

  7. To cancel an invitation, go to Members > Invited Admins & Moderators, click the three-dot menu icon next to the name, and select Cancel Moderator Invite. Select Remove as Moderator from the three-dot menu next to someone’s name to remove them as a moderator.

Facebook Admin vs. Moderator

Moderators, who can do practically everything that admins can, can also be added to groups along with numerous admins. The group’s originator is automatically an admin; they can resign only after designating a replacement.

Only admins can:

  • Invite other members to be admins or moderators
  • Remove admins and moderators
  • Manage group settings, including changing the cover photo, renaming the group, and changing privacy settings.
  • Invite someone to become a Group Expert.

Admins and moderators can:

  • Approve or reject new member requests
  • Approve or rejected new posts in the group
  • Remove posts and comments
  • Remove and block people from the group.
  • Pin or unpin a post or announcement

Group Experts

Additionally, Facebook group administrators can invite group members to join as Group Experts. An admin may send an invitation to a person requesting that they join a group of experts after recognizing them as highly informed.

When the Group Expert accepts the invitation, their post will be marked as highly educational by having a Group Expert emblem next to their name. Admins and Group Experts can work together on Q&A sessions, answer queries, provide important details, and more.
