How to Schedule Posts on Facebook Business Pages

Schedule posts on Facebook If you’re in need of a social media management tool, I believe Hootsuite is a great choice, since it’s affordable and easy to use. But if Facebook is your only social media platform, you don’t need a third party app. You can schedule posts on Facebook business pages, right from the timeline.

Facebook has had this availability for some time, but they recently introduced a new feature. Now you can see how your scheduled post will look on a mobile device in addition to the desktop. Follow the instructions below to start using Facebook’s scheduling feature.

Schedule Facebook Posts:

1) Type your status update, or upload a photo/video as you normally would on your Facebook page.

2) Instead of clicking “post”, hover your mouse over the triangle to the right of the Post button. A dropdown menu will appear with the following choices: Schedule, Backdate, and Save Draft.

3) Select “schedule” and then choose the day and time you wish your post to appeal on Facebook.

4) Click the blue “schedule” button. Voila! You’re all set. Your timeline will display a message that says you have scheduled a post. (This message won’t be visible to your fans).

Review/Edit your Scheduled Post

1) Click the “Posts” button at the top of your Facebook page, or click the “See Posts” link on your timeline.

2) Click the link for your scheduled post to view it.

3) Click the “edit” button to change the text that goes along with your post. If you want to delete the scheduled post or reschedule it, click the “triangle” next to the “edit” button and select the appropriate action.

4) Click the “Save” or “Reschedule” button when finished with your changes.

Prior to launching her SEO Copywriting business in 2009, Gloria spent nearly two decades in television, most notably as writer and producer for the award-winning PBS financial news program, “Nightly Business Report.”

Gloria turned to writing as a way to communicate, since growing up with an alcoholic father and abusive mother taught her that it was safer to be seen and not heard. But not speaking her truth caused Gloria problems such as overeating, control issues, and an inability to fully trust people. After investing in coaching & personal development programs, and studying spiritual books like “A Course in Miracles,” Gloria healed her emotional wounds. Today, she helps entrepreneurs develop the clarity and confidence to express their unique voice online and off.
