"Facebook quietly added a new way for page administrators to police each other.
The social network added a Page Management History option to the left column of its page settings.
Page Management History displays actions taken by page admins including added and removed admins, changes to rolls, changes to page settings and admins who added, removed or left groups.
Facebook said in a Help Center post that information in Page Management History only goes back to last Nov. 1."
I’ve just spotted this feature now, and oh my lord, I wonder how many “I was the original admin” stories we will disprove now. How many “I purchased it from the original owner” claims can now be actually verified? The only problem I see is that the data currently goes back to November 1st, 2019. But still, new pages and any page beyond that date will be basically impossible to lie about (the origins). How cool is that? All we will have to do is just scroll down to the bottom of the new feature and see who owned that particular page
How to access the Fanpage Management (admin) history?
- Go to your page.
- Click settings.
- Scroll down and on the left-hand side click Page Management History (as seen below)
Or, just edit this link and visit it:
Wait, there is more!
The new feature isn’t limited to what admin was added or removed. The Fanpage Admin History tool shows things like:
- Adding or removing any staff.
- Change of settings.
- Change of bio/about.
- Misc actions.
Basically, you have the page’s ownership history on a platter. I apologize for posting this in spotlight discussions right away, but I am fairly sure people who dabble in Fanpages need to see this. This may change the way how we do business, or at least how we audit properties (audits may take longer now since we may have to contact previous owners).
