Use Work Emails Only

Always use work emails to maintain complete privacy and security over your Facebook account pages. This will help you add as many people to Facebook Business Manager without having to add them as a friend on Facebook. You can also add more people to your business manager – but it is important for them to have a Facebook account as well.

If you use work emails, you are making sure that his/her access to the Facebook Business Manager is discontinued immediately after an employee leaves your company. Just make sure that while granting access to the Facebook Business Manager, you only assign access to specific assets that a person needs to work on. This will reduce the chances of error and will help in better management of work.
