On June 11, 2010 – Facebook allowed admins of a page to remove other admins, including the page creator (see post here: Facebook Pages). Which has caused quite the ruckus.
I think it’s the start of a great idea. But it would be a much better idea if the creator had the option of handing the page over to an/the Admin(s).
However, I do see the point of this, as many designers seem to have a god persona and want to maintain control/ownership over their designs. That said, when a client has paid you for your services…the site, in turn, is theirs. Yes, they should still give you credit for the design, but it’s their baby to control, not yours.
I don’t think there’s a perfect way to solve this, and Facebook (in my opinion) has done what they can. It’s not their job to play babysitter or judge and jury.
What do you think?
I just offered this solution to the thread. Let’s see if Facebook replies, and or complies.
Here’s a possible saving solution:
As designers of the Facebook Business Page, Page Creators, must identify the Owner(s) of the Business. The Owners, in turn, have the option of taking the Page Creators “Admin rights” away, but cannot remove them as the Page Creator.
Until of course a new Page Creator (via Admin access) has fully re-designed the Facebook Business Page. The old designer (old Page Creator), must then release the Business Page to the new Page Creator.
