Facebook pages are growing faster than usual. Latest statistics show that 16 million local business pages have been published as of May 2013. This figure is a 100 percent increase from only 8 million in 2012.

Businesses of all sizes are now utilizing Facebook pages as a way to reach their target audience worldwide and engage with them on a regular basis. If you’re a startup or an existing business, it’s about time to consider putting up your own page to be where your prospective customers are hanging out.

Creating a Facebook page is fast and easy as it can easily be linked to your personal account. Those new to creating a Facebook page may find some issues at the start such as the absence of a search bar at the top.

There’s an easy solution to this problem so you should be able to fix it straight away. The answer is to simply add an admin to your page in addition to yourself.

How to Add an Admin

To add an admin, first log in to your Facebook account and go to your page. At the top of the page, click the down arrow beside the Edit Page button.
