Having trouble adding a Developer or Administrator to your Facebook App?

… GRRRRRRR!  Sometimes I really, really, really don’t like how other people make things so hard.

I recently needed to add a colleague as an Administrator on a FB App. Until then he didn’t even have a Facebook account and only created one for this purpose. So, once he verified that he was a real person we thought it would be straight forward to add him.

It wasn’t. Not. No. Never. Not by a long shot.

I’m going to spare you all the gory details (like his account getting deactivated twice and FB constantly logging him out), as well as some lost hair by simply saying this: Make sure that anyone you want to add as a Developer or Administrator to a FB App goes to http://developers.facebook.com and creates an app. All you need to do is click the button, provide a bogus name that it will accept, click “Next” and wait for these screen to finish downloading.

Takes about 15 seconds. Not several hours and choice curse words.
