Well, it happened again. A friend just emailed that her Facebook account has been disabled.
While that is a problem, a bigger issue is that she has a private Facebook group for paid customers of her courses. And she is locked out of that private group as well.
This is another example of the problem with building any major part of your business on a site you don’t own.
You can wake up one morning and find that you are locked out of part of your business, and have lost contact with your group.
This can be a nightmare if you don’t have other ways of contacting your group members.
This is why we use and love Facebook and Twitter, but we also build our own list of subscribers.
Protect YOUR Facebook Group Access
Do you have a group on Facebook, whose members you care a lot about?
If so, you’ll want to create at least two administrators for that group. Don’t be the only administrator!
If you have an additional administrator, you are protected against being locked out of your own group and being unable to contact members.
If the unthinkable happens to you, while you are working on being reinstated, your additional administrator can log in to the group and keep them informed. And you can even get access to your group through their administrator login if need be.
Plan ahead to avoid potential problems and create an additional administrator (or two) for your Facebook Groups.
Hopefully, you will never need to fall back on them, but you’ll sleep better at night.
