Not Enough Hours In Your Day For Facebook?

Not Enough Hours In Your Day For Facebook?

Is it hard for you to find the time to post to Facebook for your business?
Do you have new products to share, but you are covered up with paperwork all day?

Seems like we are always racing against the clock – Hopefully this Facebook tip will help You!

running against the clock

One of the coolest features on Facebook for business pages is the post scheduler. Thanks to this handy feature, you can schedule all of your posts for an entire week at one time. You decide what you want to post, at what time, and Facebook publishes your posts for you!

Schedule posts from your couch at home, or set a time in your office to write your posts and schedule them for the day or for the entire week.

It’s simple to do! Here is how:

1. Write your post and/or select your photo or link in your Status Bar window – But don’t hit Post just yet.

2. Select the Clock Icon in the bottom left corner of the status window. When you do this, you will see +Add Year appear above the clock.

Select +Add Year and a menu will appear for you to choose the year.  Then options for month, day, hour and minute appear.  Select the date and time you would like for your info to be posted live on your page.

Once you have all fields selected, click Schedule.

3. You will see a pop-up message that explains that your post has been scheduled. You can click the View Activity Log button to see your scheduled post(s).

Forget what you have scheduled?  No problem!  Just go to the top right of your Admin Panel and select Edit Page.  From the drop-down menu, click on Use Activity Log.

This takes you to your activity log where you can view all your scheduled posts.

When you are on the desktop version of Facebook, you can make changes to your scheduled times or delete the post here if needed.  Just hover over the right corner of your scheduled post and you will see an icon to select a drop-down menu.  Then you can choose to either edit the time or delete the post.

Simply Angie Tip:
I personally do not like to use the Facebook iPad app.  Not all features are available in the iPhone and iPad app. Instead, I open Facebook in Safari on my iPad so that all the desktop functions are available to use.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s a good feeling to know that all my Facebook posts are written and scheduled! I can now focus on other tasks.

After explaining this tip at a recent workshop, one of the attendees was so excited she could hardly contain herself! Try it out and see if it helps you, too!
