script that automatically does hidden login-operation-logout in Facebook

I'm the "administrator" of a fan club (technically a "Page") in Facebook for a singer.
I would like to give to the singer the possibility to become "administrator" and remove herself from "administrator" automatically when she wants, autonomously.
Technically speaking, this operation requires a script to login to Facebook with my account (the administrator), add her account as administrator, then logout (my account) from Facebook.
I don't want her to know my account's password, the scripts must do all hiddenly through two buttons: "ADD ADMINISTRATOR" and "REMOVE ADMINISTRATOR".

Is it something possible?

I think it is possible, but it may require considerable time-consuming research and testing to make this work.  Suggest you consider hiring a developer.  There is a fairly large community.

Dear Lucavilla,

Yes like Ray Paseur says this is possible, but there is as lot of problem of security if the script also have your password, and after that you have give you software you will not be able to change the password of your account or the software will use a bad password.

Why don't put the user has an administrator ? If you are the creator, it will not be able to remove you easily.


Best Regards

> Why don't put the user has an administrator?

Because while the singer is "administrator" all the messages that she writes appears as "[singer] Fan Club" instead as her name and surname

The Fan Club is technically a "Page", that I created via this link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?campaign_id=368885149649&placement=pgall&extra_1=0

All the times that I write on this Fan Club all my messages appear in the name of the Fan Club. Facebook does this automatically just because I'm an "administrator".

Any idea about how to write keeping my simple name and surname?

Hi luca,

I ran into the same problem...
Easiest solution: create a (fake/admin) user, make him admin, remove yourself (or the singer) from being admin.
Now you post under your name, if you want to administer log in with your (fake/admin) user...

Hope this help.
