Facebook’s business manager was created to make it easier for admins to manage more than one page from a single dashboard. It also made it easy to access your ads manager for multiple pages all in one place. It seemed like a good idea at the time but there are plenty of people who aren’t very happy with it, and once you add a page to the business manager there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to remove it!
I’ve had several questions emailed to me about this and on the Facebook help site people are asking how to do this too. So here’s the skinny.
If you want to remove the primary page you create a brand new page, make that one the primary page and then remove the page you really care about. Seems convoluted to me, but there it is.
How do you remove one of several pages from your business manager? It’s actually easy.
Go to Business.Facebook.com and select settings, then pages.
For all of the pages except your primary page you’ll see a button to remove the page from your business account. Click it and you’ll see a pop-up asking if you’re sure. If you do this you won’t have access from your business manager anymore.
Now go to the page you just removed and voila! You’re free of the dreaded business manager.
You can change your settings on the page to always post as yourself or always post as the page. You can also use the drop down menu in the upper right corner to “use Facebook as page” just like you did before.
