Why Should I Use Facebook Schedule Post

  • Allow you to post more regularly and increase your posting without spending all day on your Facebook page.
  • You can also schedule a YouTube video link, which will attach as it normally does in your posts.
  • If you have a smartphone, you can do it from Pages Manager App.
  • Facebook has been known to show posts using third-party tools a little less in the news feed ( EdgeRank Effect ) or collapse them Compared to Using Facebook it self to post.
  • You can attach photos, add links, add YouTube videos, add tags to other pages and events or just include regular text.  (Most third-party tools do not support all of this when scheduling to Facebook)
  • You can also add language and location targeting in your scheduled posts, just like you can in your regular posts. Just click on the Public icon and make the necessary adjustments.

Let me clarify 4th point a little bit (little technical part here )  - You may already know it is possible to schedule posts using third-party tools like Buffer, HootSuite, but Facebook has been known to show posts using third-party tools a little less in the news feed or collapse them Compared to Using Facebook it self to post. As all third-patty tools use Facebook API to access Facebook Account and this restricts third-patty tools some functionality like adding tags And Using mention people or page using @ symbol in post. So it only possible with in Facebook itself.  (Find more details about this in the comment section bellow).


We use Facebook Schedule Post future in www.facebook.com/linkstoweb for our “ Inspirational Quote Of Day ” Section Where we Post Inspirational Quote Of famous personalities in every morning (IST). Actually all of the posts in this section are scheduled for every day morning So that I could engage more with our fans on FacebookSmile. We can mention and add tags in this scheduled Facebook post which only possible by Using This. 


How To Schedule Facebook Posts

It’s easy, just follow a few simple steps.

  1. Go to your Facebook Page
  2. Type in 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.
  3. Before you hit “Post,” click on the small clock at the bottom of the posting box
    You can now add the year, month, day and time you want the post to go out.

  4. Once you have everything set, just click the blue Schedule button. Voilà! Now just remember to circle back to your posts later after the scheduled time to watch for follow-up comments!

After scheduling the post, Facebook immediately Pop-out a box Informing you to check out Activity Log to see the status of all your Scheduled post where you can see see all of your scheduled posts .

You can also do it manually  by clicking on the admin panel at the top right, then “Manage” and then “Use Activity Log”and you will see all of your scheduled posts.


What missing in Facebook Schedule Post
  • You can schedule the minutes at 00-, 10-, 20-, 30-, 40- or 50-minute marks of the hour. So if you need a post to go out specifically at 2:15 pm, you cannot set it.
  • If you need to edit your scheduled post, the only thing you can change from here is the time, unfortunately. To edit the text, you must cancel the post and redo your scheduling. To cancel or change the time, mouse over the upper-right corner of the post in the activity log.
  • You can’t schedule some of the other types of posts as you can normally do from the publisher, such as photo albums, posting of events, questions, offers and milestones.
  • If you have linked your Twitter account to your Facebook page by setting up www.Facebook.com/Twitter so that everything you post on Facebook gets tweeted (yes, we know that it’s not always a great idea but sometimes it isn’t terrible), be aware that your scheduled posts won’t go out to Twitter

The option does appear to schedule a Facebook post on personal profiles, which may be a good thing for people who are using their personal profiles to talk about business. But as of this writing, I could not schedule anything into the future, only for today or in the past.


I encourage you to try some experiments with scheduled posts on your page and see how things work for you.

  1. Hi Viacanto ,
    Did you try this for your facebook page or for facebook profile ?
    As I have mentioned on the post scheduling seems only working for facebook page.

  2. I have checked it again, and it is working for me on my Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/linkstoweb ) ,But in the case of my facebook profile I could not schedule anything into the future, only for today or in the past. So for scheduling post to personal account we have to use 3rd party app like Buffer or hootsute for now!

  3. The big flaw in this is, if you schedule a post lets say 15 minutes
    earlier; After it is published, the news feed will show the post has
    just published now, but when you click the post it says 15 minutes ago

  4. there is also a free app that makes scheduling a lot easier, you can schedule posts on your pages, walls, groups, you can check it out at http://www.facebookplanner.com/
