Facebook has finally allowed us to start scheduling our Facebook updates rather than having to do them all manually or use a third party like Hootsuite. So, how do you schedule a post in Facebook? Below are step by step instructions of how to do just that.
*Note: Posts can be scheduled in 15 minute increments and up to six months in advance.
To schedule a post on Facebook:
You will still need to use 3rd party tools like Hootsuite if you want to bulk schedule updates. However, in the past it’s been noted that using a 3rd party app to schedule updates results in a lower EdgeRank and therefore less reach etc. I wonder if because they are now scheduled within Facebook if they will be treated as a regular update.
What do you think of this new feature is it helpful or will you still be using a 3rd party app to schedule your posts when planning future posts?
