How To Add Moderators and Admins To A Facebook Group? If you’ve ever created a group on Facebook, you will automatically become an admin of that group. As an Admin you have full control over the group.
As an admin you are free to make rules and manage members in your group, starting from accepting and removing members, appointing members as moderators, or even appointing group admins.
Here, we will explain how the process of appointing a member to be an admin or moderator in your group, but before doing this, there are things that you must know because it is related to the security of your group.
Difference between Admin and Moderator in Facebook Groups
If you are overwhelmed with managing a group, the solution is not to appoint an admin, but to appoint a moderator.
If you don’t know the difference between an admin and a moderator, first understand the difference below.
The highest role in the group, free to appoint and remove members, can even remove other admins if they want. Admin has full control.
This role is under admin. They can still do many things, such as deleting other members’ comments, removing and blocking members, closing comments on posts, rejecting member login requests, etc. But they can’t change the group settings, nor delete other admins or moderators in the group. So they’re more like assistant admins, having less control than admins.
So if you need help managing a group, you just need to hire a moderator. Even then, they can’t just pick up anything, because even though they don’t have full control, they have quite a lot of control that can influence the development and direction of our Facebook group.
The risk of recruiting just anyone to be an admin or moderator
If you carelessly choose someone as an admin in your group, you can be removed at any time from your admin position. This is because admins can delete admins. If you have this, your group will be controlled by that user.
This is a risk that you must know, especially if the group has many members. Groups that have thousands of members, for example, can easily be sold on the internet for a hefty price.
That’s why, if you want to appoint someone as an admin, make sure the person you trust is right, and you can meet them offline in the real world. For example, family or close friends.
But even then it is still not recommended, because, with so many admins, there are also many hands that can change group settings, and this is not good for group continuity, because members will be uncomfortable if the rules change.
How To Add Facebook Group Admin
If you have found the right person to be an admin in your Facebook group. The next step is to appoint the person to be an Admin. To do so, you can follow the steps below.
- Open the Facebook application on your respective smartphone.
- Tap the three-line icon in the upper right corner. Then select “Group”
- Next, tap the “Your groups” menu.
- Select a group that you manage.
- Tap your group name or info.

- If you have, will appear all the members in your group. You can choose one of them.
- After that several menu options will appear, you can select “Add as admin”.
- Next, a small box will appear in the form of a submission to invite that person to become an Admin, just tap “Send an invitation”.
Then you just have to wait for the member to accept your invitation and agree to be the admin of the group. Simple right?
Add members to be moderators?
if you read the previous section you should already know the process, basically, the process is the same as above, it’s just that in step 8, you choose “Add as moderator”.
Moderators can’t delete admins or other moderators, moderators can’t change group settings, the rest are the same as admins. So moderators can’t just pick anything up either.
