How to Schedule a Facebook Post

posted in: Facebook | 0

One of the great things about Facebook is that the site allows you to schedule your own posts as an admin to a business page. If you know you will be away from your desk for the day, using this tool can save you time (and stress) in a pinch and continue your exposure on the channel.

Scheduling is easy — just follow these steps:

Write your post as you normally would. You can attach photos, add links, add YouTube videos, add tags to other pages and events or just include regular text.

In the lower-left corner of your post, click on the clock symbol as shown in the screenshot below. You can choose a date you want the post to go out. Note: You can schedule your post up to 6 months in the future (more months are shown, but if you select more than 6 months out, Facebook won’t accept it).

Once you have everything set, just click the blue Schedule button in the bottom right-hand corner. Voilà! Your post will now appear as scheduled.

Though, at KWSM, we recommend always posting the most up-to-date content so this wouldn’t be the most preferable way to post. However, it can certainly help your business to maintain exposure when necessary.
