Facebook Fanpage Scheduling is HERE!!!!

FINALLY!!
If I was to have a Fanpage wish list this would definitely have been near the top!!
I mean scheduling really is a must for any business small business!
I schedule blog posts in so they post at appropriate times and in appropriate stages and not as I write them at stupid o’clock and 4 at a time 😉
I schedule in the odd sales tweet now and then.
So it’s been really annoying not to have been able to do this on Facebook!!

This handy image explains exactly how you schedule an update on your Fanpage.

 

I did several the other night I did find only a handful of the scheduled updates posted onto Twitter.  I updated manually inbetween to check that the Facebook to Twitter app was working and it was fine.   So I’m sure this is just a glitch in the system and will be rectified soon.

This is a great tool for time saving. I must just now remember to use it 😉 !!

    This is a great idea which has lead me to searching my own Insights on how can I find out the best times to schedule my posts. Eventually found the answer in Overview – Posts – hover the cursor over the date of each post and this shows you the time you made the post. Late evenings seem to be the best time for my audience!

    Oh wow, that is so handy. I thought this must be possible but hadn’t worked it out! I thought it was missing on my fb page but the clock just comes up with year, month, time step by step so wasn’t as obvious as I thought it would be. Thank you for the top tip though! x

      For some reason it’s not the easiest tool to spot or use! I dislike having to state year, month, day and time!
