Having a Facebook page is an excellent way to promote your business or a cause. However, if your page suddenly becomes popular, running it will turn into a job all of its own. That’s when you need to consider bringing on people as page admins to help you run the shop. Here’s how to add an admin on a Facebook page — and remove them later if it becomes necessary.
Read more: How to delete a Facebook page
To add an admin to a Facebook page, go to the page settings, then Page roles. Search for the Facebook profile owner that you want to add, select the page role as Admin and save. When the person has accepted the invitation, they will be an admin of the page. To remove them, click Edit next to their name in the Page roles section and choose Remove.
JUMP TO KEY SECTIONS
On the Facebook desktop website, go to the Facebook page in question. In the left-hand sidebar, scroll to the bottom and click Settings.
Under Assign a new Page role, start typing the name of the person that you want to add as an admin. When you find them, click them. If their name is a common one, you may have to add their Facebook-registered email address instead.
Editor is chosen as the default page role. Therefore, drop down the list and select Admin instead.
Enter your password to confirm the changes. This stops anyone from sneakily adding themselves as an admin to your Facebook page without permission.
They will now appear in the Existing Page roles section as Pending. When they accept the invitation to become an admin, that Pending tag will disappear. Until then, you also have the opportunity to cancel the invitation.
If things are not working out, and you need to remove them as an admin, that is very straightforward to do. Go back to Existing Page roles and click the Edit button.
In the bottom-left, there is a Remove button. Click that to remove them as an admin. Alternatively, you can drop down the permissions menu and downgrade them to a lesser role. Remember to click Save to make sure the changes go through.
It feels much more streamlined and easier to add an admin to a page using the mobile app.
To remove someone as a page admin in the mobile app:
No, only holders of personal profiles can be added as page admins.
Yes, they have a lot of control over a page, including reassigning page roles and privileges. This includes the page owner.
A page can have an unlimited number of admins. However, practically speaking, you should keep it to the bare minimum.
Technically, this is possible. But then nobody would have access to the page, and it would become dormant.
Yes, they can delete the page.
No, you can’t see any specific admins, but the contact information in the About section may reveal who it is.
The person needs to have a Facebook account and must have ‘liked’ the page that you want to add them to.
The National Pension Commission (Commission) initiated the Data Recapture Exercise (DRE) in 2019 in compliance with Section 23(e) of the PRA 2014 to update the data of Retirement Savings Accounts (RSA) holders who opened their RSA before 1 July 2019.
Retirement Savings Account (RSA) holders were registered using the Contributors Registration System (CRS) Application when the Contributory Pension Scheme was launched in 2004. The inability to change contributor information and enrol physically incapacitated contributors were a few issues that the CRS application developed over time. To address the shortcomings of the CRS and update contributor data, the Commission developed the Enhanced Contributors Registration System (ECRS). Consequently, all RSA holders who enrolled before the ECRS went live on 1 July 2019 must complete the DRE to migrate their information from the CRS to the ECRS.
The Objectives of DRE
The need for DRE was given further impetus by the directive of the Federal Government that all data-generating agencies should align their data with the National Identity Management Commission’s (NIMC). Accordingly, synchronizing and aligning RSA holders’ data with the NIMC’s database using the National Identity Number (NIN) as a unique identifier is one of the primary goals of the DRE. The DRE also aims to accomplish the following:
Eligibility for the DRE
Every RSA holder who enrolled before 1 July 2019 must participate in the DRE. Whether the RSA holder is a retiree or an active contributor, they must update their data through the DRE. The procedure is simple. To participate, an RSA holder should present the following identification and documents to their PFA:
To expedite the procedure, the Commission authorized a Share Service Initiative (SSI) proposed by the Pension Fund Operators Association of Nigeria (penOp). Two agents, PAY-ONE Solution Limited and Afritech Multi Concept Limited, were designated and assigned to organizations under the SSI to conduct the DRE. The two agents have the approval of NIMC to operate as NIN registration agents. In addition, to ensure the confidentiality of information, the Commission implemented a robust data security architecture.
The Commission monitors and regulates the activities of the agents by ensuring that:
Benefits of DRE
In light of the foregoing, it is crucial to highlight that the DRE enables the RSA holders to enjoy the following benefits in addition to fulfilling the Commission’s responsibility to maintain a clean database and complying with Federal Government policy to meet NIMC standards:
RSA holders that are yet to participate in the DRE are enjoined to approach their PFAs and participate immediately so as to benefit from the services provided by the pension industry.
If you have any enquiry or require further information regarding the Data Recapture Exercise, kindly get in touch with National Pension Commission on the following phone numbers: 094603930, and 07066924512 or by email: email@example.com.
A property developer who bought the central Christchurch clubrooms of the Returned and Services Association (RSA) has retained some memorial features while converting it to an office building.
Developer and investor Lindsay O’Donnell’s company Amherst Properties paid $3.4 million for the building last year after the troubled RSA sold it in the face of financial losses and mounting debts.
Amherst is now nearing the end of the $1m-plus conversion. The work has included stripping out and refurbishing the interior, and cutting new windows in the eastern facade.
O’Donnell said they will add a poppy mural to the eastern facade and are hiring a local street artist to paint it.
* How a grand new building and swanky restaurant became a financial disaster for the Christchurch RSA
* Contest for RSA president brings back bad memories
* Commemorative wall of plaques taken down by Christchurch RSA
“I didn’t want it to be just another office building. We wanted it recognised for what it stood for,” he said.
“It’s always a balance, but we’ve tried to keep bits that are significant. We didn’t want to step on the toes of the RSA – it’s their history”.
The association’s connection with the site dates back a century to when it first built clubrooms there after World War I.
After the 1920s rooms were demolished following the earthquakes, the RSA purpose built a replacement designed by Christchurch architects Warren and Mahoney, costing $6.5m.
The new building opened in 2015 featuring the Trenches restaurant, bar and function area, which was intended to bring in revenue. However, the business failed and Trenches was closed in late 2019.
Amherst has removed five of the 11 distinctive metal-clad pillars out front, which are inscribed with the names of overseas battles in which Kiwi service personnel lost their lives. The five are still owned by the RSA and have been removed and stored.
Three of the other pillars are still in place and the other three will be re-installed on the eastern side of the building.
Also retained are exterior engravings in the marble walls, including one memorizing “We Will Remember Them”.
Attempts by the RSA to have stonemasons salvage memorials which honoured individual soldiers failed, and they were lost, O’Donnell said.
The RSA took digital copies of the memorials, which had been paid for by families and built into an interior concrete wall, in the hope it might later recreate them.
Other memorial items, including murals depicting war scenes by Christchurch painter William Sutton, were removed by the RSA and auctioned off to raise money.
O’Donnell said deconstructing the building’s interior had required considerable effort because it was designed with an emphasis on hospitality.
Amherst has also bought a site alongside the building for car parking. It previously bought and redeveloped land behind the clubrooms which the RSA sold to fund the building’s construction.
RSA poppies are made at a factory in Christchurch which is staffed by volunteers and can produce 2000 to 2500 poppies each day.
The Biden administration is extending the pause on student loan payments until no later than June 30, 2023, as theis held up in court. President Biden announced the extension Tuesday in a video posted to the White House Twitter account.
Student loan repayments were supposed to resume Jan. 1, 2023, for the first time since thebegan. But a federal appeals court has blocked the president's student loan forgiveness program, and the administration has asked the Supreme Court to reinstate their stalled plans. For now, the fate of the program remains unclear, with millions of borrowers in limbo.
The White Housein August that Mr. Biden would be taking executive action to forgive $10,000 in loans for Americans making under $125,000 a year or $250,000 for married couples. Pell grant receipents are eligible for additional $10,000 to be forgiven.
"I'm confident that our student debt relief plan is legal," Mr. Biden tweeted. "But it's on hold because Republican officials want to block it. That's why @SecCardona is extending the payment pause to no later than June 30, 2023, giving the Supreme Court time to hear the case in its current term."
Payments would restart 60 days after the Supreme Court decision or on June 30, whichever comes first. The Supreme Court has not yet said whether they will take the case.
Since the Biden administration announced the plan, it has faced a number of legal challenges, and has beentwo federal courts. The White House has said that nearly 26 million Americans have applied for the program, and 16 million applications have already been approved.

The Royal Society for Arts (RSA) has unveiled the nine recipients of the 2022 Royal Designers for Industry (RDI) title as it overhauls its structure to recognise speculative design, regenerative design and design research.
Every year, the RSA award the RDI title to individuals who exhibit “sustained design excellence” and produce “work of aesthetic value and significant benefit to society”, according to the RSA.
Superflux founders Anab Jain and Jon Ardern and Munich-based industrial designer Stephan Diez are among the new inductees, who were announced by Master of the RDI Faculty Tom Lloyd during a ceremony at RSA House.
Only 200 designers can be part of the group at any one time, and it has a legacy stretching back to its foundation in 1936. Non-UK designers can win the title as honorary Royal Designers. Current RDI include illustrator Quentin Blake, who has held the title since 1981, and graphic designer Michael Wolff, who was awarded the title in 2011.
Sebastian Cox was awarded an RDI for his work in regenerative design. He is a designer, maker and environmental campaigner who adopts a nature-first approach in his work at his zero-waste workshop in London.
Cox uses only UK harvested woods, including from his own woodland in Kent. He practices coppicing, which is a woodland management technique involving repeatedly felling trees at the base (or stool) and allowing them to regrow to provide a sustainable supply of timber. This means that the raw materials Cox uses are net positive.
As well as modern digital fabrication methods, Cox designs and makes furniture pieces using traditional crafts and greenwood working techniques, such as weaving steaming and cleaving. His design style brings “the softness of nature into modern spaces”, said Lloyd, adding that the furniture pieces clearly communicate the origins of the materials and act as “vectors of education on subjects of bio-diversity and climate breakdown”.
Superflux founders Anab Jain and Jon Ardern were recognised for innovation in speculative design and handed RDI titles. Founded in 2009, Superflux is both a design and experiential futures company and a research and art practice.
Addressing subjects such as climate change and algorithmic autonomy, Jain and Ardern seek to present the complex and interconnected nature of present-day challenges to diverse audiences. Their approach is a unique strategy for business that works by inviting people into hypothetical worlds to expand their imagination.
Lloyd described Superflux as “one of the first studios to pioneer a practice with speculative design, critical foresight, design fiction and experiential futures in business”. Jain and Ardern’s work takes the form of client projects, cautionary tales, super-fictions and immersive simulations which test new ideas and themes, ultimately helping to identify blind spots and enable strategic, informed and long-term decision making.
Stefan Diez attained an Honorary RDI title for his work in the product design space, where he focusses on designing furniture lighting and accessories for the circular economy. He founded Diez office in 2002 forefront of transforming the ways that products are developed and manufactured.
Growing up in a household of fourth generation carpenters inspired Diez’s “hands-on experimental approach” to his designs, said Lloyd. This concept is at the heart of his studio space formed in 2008, which is joinery-turned-atelier workshop in the centre of Munich.
The space aims to encourage crosspollination, creative experimentation and working analytically. According to Lloyd, Diez believes a good product “offers a tangible advantage to the user and is something they become attached to and want to preserve”.
Diez has also been head of the industrial design program at the University of Applied Arts Vienna since 2018.
Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin received an Honorary RDI for innovation in design research. The pair founded research-based design studio Formafantasma in 2009 to drive projects that investigate the ecological, historical, political and social powers that influence contemporary design. They carry out similar research as co-leaders of the geo-design department at the Design Academy Einthoven.
Working from their studios in Milan and Rotterdam across multiple disciplines, – such as product design, spatial design, strategic planning design and consultancy – Trimarchi and Farresin take on both client briefs and self-initiated projects. Lloyd explained how their portfolio exemplifies “coherent visual language and meticulously research outcomes”.
He adds that Trimarchi and Farresin have advocated the need for “value-laden advocacy merged with holistic design thinking” in a bid to facilitate better knowledge of our natural and built environments and how it can be transformed through design.
Professor in Graphic Design at The University of Melbourne and a visiting Professor at Tokyo Zokei University John Warwicker achieved the RDI honour for his work in new media design. Lloyd said that Warwicker “never stood still”, adding that his work across media, performance, commerce and art practices is “progressive exploratory and innovative”. Warwicker co-founded the multi-disciplinary design collective Tomato and received TTDC special prize for the curatorship and design of the O tomato Parco exhibition in Tokyo, which celebrated Tomato’s 25th anniversary in 2016.
Renowned west-African Burkinabè architect Diébédo Francis Kéré was accorded an Honorary RDI award. Lloyd described Kéré’s vision as both “utopian and pragmatic” as he focusses largely on utilising local materials, community engagement and sustainable modes of design to construction. Jenny Bevan (OBE) received the honour of becoming a RDI for her innovation in costume design. She has designed clothes for 49 films, 16 TV productions and 30 theatre productions and won three Oscars, three Baftas and two Primetime Emmys.
Lloyd also announced that Charlie Paton, who has been a RDI since 2012 for his work in engineering design, will replace him as Master of the faculty. Paton is best known for inventing the Seawater Greenhouse, which combines seawater and sunlight to generate ideal growing conditions for crops in hot, dry environments.
