Facebook page (Admin rights)

Is it legal for me to sell my facebook page (wheel not the actual page just the admin) to somebody else, because i have this facebook group/page with more than million people. But now i don't have time to menage it because my other to groups are taking to much of my free time so i want to sell admin to somebody else. So does anybody now about a case where somebody sold admin rights to another person and/or if thats even legal....

Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

Registration and Account Security

Facebook users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

1. You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission.
2. You will not create more than one personal profile.
3. If we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission.
4. You will not use your personal profile for your own commercial gain (such as selling your status update to an advertiser).
5. You will not use Facebook if you are under 13.
6. You will not use Facebook if you are a convicted sex offender.
7. You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.
8. You will not share your password, (or in the case of developers, your secret key), let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account.
9. You will not transfer your account (including any page or application you administer) to anyone without first getting our written permission.
10. If you select a username for your account we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user's actual name).
I'd say that 8 & 9 pretty much covers it.

Well it's against the policy of facebook to sell your facebook page to someone else.
But i think, you have more than one million friends than why you give that page to some of your friend who can handle it. With that, your friends will also increase.

You can have multiple admins. What's the problem?

If you have one million people who like your page ... then you've got do some something smart and promote something that's valuable but at the same time with an option for purchase.

Let's say 0.1% act that's 1 000 people buying a product.
if it is a self-help product that's 297 so $297 000

I think it is a stupid idea to transfer ownership (if it were possible at all) unless you're getting 6-7 figure sum.

It is up to you.

No i don't have multiple admins, and i don't want to give it for free to somebody because i am afraid that they wont appreciate it like i do, because it took lot of time and work to get million members...
And i don't expect lot of money just some real figure, would sell it for 1000$ just so i am shore that new owner is going to take good care....
Is there any case of selling admin rights or something similar.....

It's definitely not legal, it's in the terms. But why would you sell it? It's hard to get those numbers (unless they're fake fans).

Also, you can never be sure whether the one you'll sell the "ownership" of the page to will appreciate it like you do. You can always just add multiple admins to manage it for you for the meantime. You just never know you might have good use for this in the future.

yep. You can have multiple admins. I don't know what the limit is but who cares.
You won't have 100 admins, right ?

I also agree you should not sell your face book page.It is very hard to make million users on a page.It will be very useful for you in future.
