Ok so this is not NEW, but it is certainly worth knowing. Facebook now allows you to schedule posts to appear on you page at a later date, month, year or hour. Before we had to go to Hootsuite or other online software to do this, but now Facebook is finally in the loop of things and has integrated this great feature to its platform.

It’s also pretty simple!

How do I schedule a post to appear on my Page later?

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 10-minute intervals.

From your Page’s sharing tool:
  1. Choose the type of post you want to add to your Page
  2. Click the icon in the lower-left of the sharing tool
  3. Choose the future year, month, day, hour and minute when you’d like your post to appear
  4. Click Schedule

To manage your future posts all you have to do is to go to “Activity Log” in which you can see them, delete them and edit them. Simple as that!

If you have a smartphone, you can create an offer from the Pages Manager App.

  4. Tap Schedule at the top right corner

You can view and manage your scheduled posts by tapping on Filter in the top right corner.

Would it this be the end for Hootsuite? or will it stick around for longer? perhaps Hootsuite will have to add some extra value to its service to make it worth while for small businesses. (Granted it already does, and it has the bulk schedule feature brilliant if you have more than one media to manage)

  1. I absolutely love this feature. It is so much better to schedule a post for Facebook on Facebook rather than using some 3rd party tools like we had to in the past. Thanks for the reminder.
