Home / Granting Access Without Passwords

You do not need to give us a password in order to connect your existing social media to Social Starter. Instead, we ask you to add us as administrators to your pages, which lets us post to them. Here’s how to add us as an administrator to your social media pages:

Facebook Business Page

Important: In June, 2021, Facebook began rolling out its “New Pages Experience.” The new experience changes how admins are added. Some business pages have already been converted to the new experience, while some retain the classic interface. If you are not sure which experience you are viewing, we recommend trying the instructions for Classic Pages. If they don’t seem to apply to your page, then proceed to the instructions for the New Pages Experience below.

Instructions for Classic Pages

1. Visit your business page while logged into Facebook.

2. Click on Page Settings from menu on the left of your screen.

3. You should now see the Page Settings screen. Select Page Roles from the left menu.

4. On the Page Roles screen, look for the heading Assign a New Page Role. In the text box, enter: ben.mchugh.7106 . As you type, you should see a box appear with the Martindale logo and the name “Benjamin McHugh.” This is our social media management account. Click that box. Make sure to select Admin from the adjacent drop-down menu. (Please do not give us editor access! We require admin access to connect the page to our service.)
