This article explains how to make someone an admin in a Facebook group, how to make someone a moderator, and the difference between the two roles.

How to Make Someone an Admin on a Facebook Page

An admin has the most power in a group. Among other responsibilities, they can add and remove admins and moderators and approve or deny membership requests.

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

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

Select your group.

Click Members from the menu on the left.

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

Select Make admin.

Click Send Invite.

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

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. 

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.

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

Select your group.

Click Members from the menu.

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

Select Make Moderator.

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

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.

To remove someone as a moderator, select Remove as Moderator from the three-dot menu next to their name.

Facebook Admin vs. Moderator

Groups can have multiple admins as well as moderators, who can do almost everything that admins can. By default, the creator of the group is an admin; they can step down only if they name someone in their place.

Only admins can:
