You may appoint a delegate to manage your new account (e.g. forum page). The Delegates section of Manage Accounts page will provide you with a list of contacts on this instance under "Potential Delegates". Selecting one or more persons will give them access to manage your forum. They will be able to edit contacts, profiles, and all content for this account/page. Please use this facility wisely. Delegated managers will not be able to alter basic account settings, such as passwords or page types, or remove the account.

Types of Accounts

On the new account, visit the Settings > Account page. Towards the end of the page is a section for "Advanced account types". Typically you would use "Personal Page - Standard" for a normal personal account with manual approval of “friends” and “followers.” This is the default selection. On this page you can change the type of account if desired.

The other subtypes of a Personal Page are “Soapbox” and “Love-all.” A Soapbox account is an announcement channel that automatically approvals follower requests. Everything posted by the account will go out to the followers, but there will be no opportunity for interaction. This setting would typically be used for announcements or corporate communications. “Love-all” automatically approves contacts as friends.
