Marketing companies, social media managers, and agencies are often in charge of many Facebook accounts. Even for only one company, there is a high chance that they have multiple Facebook Pages and Groups for different stores, sub-brands, or events.
Doing every step manually creates an extra operational workload for experts. And we hear and understand your concerns! As experts, you should primarily focus on strategic tasks rather than operational jobs. After all, social media management is a challenging job.
That's why we have decided to create a guide for you to manage multiple Facebook accounts more efficiently and professionally.
Can you manage multiple Facebook accounts?
Before August 2018, you could use third-party tools to manage multiple Facebook accounts (personal profiles) on a single dashboard and schedule your posts simultaneously.
However, on August 1st, 2018, Facebook made it impossible for third-party tools to publish directly to profiles on Facebook.
But, if you want to manage multiple Facebook accounts for pages and groups, it is possible with the ultimate social media management tool, Circleboom Publish!

Then, choose "Business assets" on the left-hand menu and click on "Pages" and "Add Pages," respectively.
Step #4: If you use the same email to sign up for Facebook Business Manager as your Facebook Pages, you can simply add them. If not, you need to request access from the pages' admins.
Or, you can also create a new Facebook Page on this dashboard.
Step #5: To finish the process, click 'Next,' and you'll be sent to the Add Facebook page screen. In the provided space, type the name or URL of your Facebook page, then click Add Page.
Facebook will automatically accept the request for admins, and you will see the pages on your dashboard.
Step #6: Choose the primary page to request access; this page will validate your identity before granting you access. After you've chosen the page, click "next."

- To set up your parent store page, go to the "Promote Your Stores" section and click "Get Started." The parent store is your main store page; once you post content on this page, it will also appear on the other store location pages.
