    Suppose you’re the page admin but you log in using your organization’s general email address (ie. [email protected]), does that change everything? I don’t see the same things on our org page that you show on the video. No newsfeed, friend requests, etc. We do get notifications on our Admin panel, but that’s it. Do I need to add myself as an Admin using my personal account?
