Facebook Adds New Feature to Schedule Posts

Facebook has finally provided page owners with the ability to schedule posts in advance. Now, admins have the option to schedule posts anywhere from 10 minutes prior to publishing or as far as 6 months in advance. If you have been using third party scheduling sites, such as Hootsuite or Tweetdeck to increase efficiency and time management, but feared losing news feed optimization because of third party apps, now you can plan ahead and schedule right within Facebook.

Here’s how it works.

When posting a new status, in the status update box, there is a clock in the lower left hand corner.  Upon clicking it, the user will be asked to pick a year, followed by the month, date, hour and minute.

Click ‘schedule,’ and the post will be sent to the activity log.

 

 

 

 

Under your activity log, “schedule posts” now appears. Displaying the date and time of when the future update will be posted.

 

 

 

 

 

If admins wish to change the time or cancel the post entirely, they can do so under ‘Scheduled Posts.’

The new scheduling feature is a great resource to manage your time while increasing the number of posts made the best times of the day for engagement. With the new admin roles, page owners should be reminded that only managers and content creator admins have the option of scheduling posts.
