Removing Facebook Fan Page admin permissions for yourself

I recently changed jobs, and ended up still being connected to a Facebook fan page.  Because there was no real admin section dedicated to defining permissions, I thought that if I unliked the page, it would properly remove me as an administration; thus stopping all email notifications for the page.  This turned out to be false, and after a lot of time trying to figure this out, I hit the search engines.  After some research I found that you can remove admin permissions via the Fans dialog, but I was not listed.  Although not the least bit intuitive, there is a solution; this is what I had to do in order to revoke all administrator-level permissions:

  1. If you are not listed as a Fan, click the Like button at the top of the page.
  2. Scroll to the Fans section, and click See All.
  3. Find yourself within the Fans dialog (I appeared first in the list after re-liking the page).
  4. Click Remove Admin, located next to your name.
  5. If you so desire, you may now use the Unlike button at the bottom of the page to remove yourself as a Fan.

That’s all it took for me!  I hope this helps some of you still struggling with this issue.
