Additional things to check

You can change any of these (including the above) temporarily and then change them back once you have become admin for the page.

  • In the “Account Settings” area check your “Blocking” for anything that may be preventing you from being added.
  • Check you “Privacy Settings”. The settings I have above work when I’m being added to a page.
  • If you’re not receiving notification that you have been added, check your “Notifications” section.
