If you haven’t heard, you can prepare a post and schedule it to appear later by adding a date and time in the future before you post it. You can schedule a post up to 6 months in advance in 15-minute intervals. As of recently, you can edit the copy of your post too. I’ve included a couple of screen shots to help guide you through the process. If you’re not already a BrandLove, LLC Facebook Fan, please “like” my page. There are lots more social media tips and information. My fan page is updated daily. Thank you for your support! Now, as promised here’s step by step instructions on scheduling and editing your post.
From your Page’s sharing tool:
- Choose the type of post you want to add to your Page
- Click the icon in the lower-left of the sharing tool
- Choose the future year, month, day, hour and minute when you’d like your post to appear
- Click Schedule
If you choose a date in the past, the post will appear immediately at the appropriate place on your Page’s timeline. All times correspond to the current time zone you’re in.
After you’ve scheduled a post to appear on your Page, you can view it in your activity log:
- Open your admin panel by clicking Admin Panel in the upper-right corner of your Page
- Click Edit Page at the top
- Select Use Activity Log
Scheduled posts will appear at the top of your activity log. From here, you can change the time your post is scheduled, publish the post or cancel the post by hovering over it and clicking the menu. If you want to edit the copy, tag your photo or add the location, click on the photo and choose which option you would like to edit.
