Facebook now allows you to set Admin roles on your Facebook fan pages. You now have five different administrator roles available on your Facebook page: Manager, Content Creator, Moderator, Advertiser and Insight Analyst. The Manager has the most and the Insight Analyst will hold the least privileges on Facebook pages.

You can set admin roles just while adding someone as an admin or editing the existing administrators’ roles in the Admin Roles section of your Facebook page.
