However, one feature that irritates most new users is the outset of permissions in the business manager. There are Business Manager Admins, Page Admins, Ad Account Admins, and the list goes on.

Facebook, sadly did a poor job of assigning permissions in a simple way. And that is why people sometimes, prefer Ads Manager over Business Manager. But, for you, go for both.

Myth 2: Switching to Business Manager is a tedious process

Myth 3: You can operate limited accounts with Business Manager

The Facebook business manager gives you limited account option.

Don’t really know where this myth came from but people are taking it seriously.

There is no such thing as having a limited number of accounts in Business Manager.

If you are still facing issues with ad account limits, it’s clear that something within the Ad Account isn’t linked to the Business Manager properly, or it could be a bug.
