Schedule Facebook Posts for Later

Recently, I had almost the exact same conversation with two different people. Both times, it went something like this:

PERSON: *sigh* I need to dedicate way more time to my business’s social media. Too bad I don’t have the time…

ME: Did you know you can schedule your posts for a later time/date?

PERSON: ???????????????

ME: It’s true! Facebook Pages allows you to schedule posts in advance. Meaning you can get your week or even month’s worth of posts set up in a matter of minutes, and never think about it again!

PERSON: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If you weren’t already aware, Facebook Pages makes it so easy to create a post and schedule it to publish in the future.

The first step: make sure your organization/business is set up as a Facebook PAGE (see this blog if you’re confused on pages vs Pages).

The next steps go like this:

Schedule a Post
To schedule a post:
  1. Start creating your post at the top of your Page’s Timeline
  2. Click  next to Publish and select Schedule
  3. Below Publication, select the date and time when you want the post to publish
  4. Click Schedule

VOILA! It’s THAT easy!
