Facebook recently added the ability to schedule a post to appear – so you can have something appear at a specific time without having to be at your computer or smartphone to post it.
For example, you might want to post an update of a promotion ending at 6pm without having to make sure you\’re there to post it. Or have a new product announcement go out at specific time.
For those of you who prefer to see how it\’s done with a screencast, watch this:
Otherwise follow the screenshots and step by step below.
Go to your Facebook page and start a status update:
Click on the clock icon in the bottom left corner and + Add year will appear.
Once you choose a year, + Add month will appear.
You should get the idea here but just so I don\’t put all these fancy screenshots to waste, we\’l keep going.
Choose a month.
Choose a day.
Choose an hour.
Choose a minute.
Write your post if you haven\’t already.
Once you click Schedule, details of your scheduled post will appear in a pop-up.
When you click View Activity Log you can see a summary of scheduled posts that you have.
That\’s it. Your post is scheduled and you can go have a sip of coffee or your favourite beverage.
