how to schedule posts on Facebook

Facebook is changing how you schedule posts

I manage Facebook posts for many of my clients, and in the last hour there’s been a change in how you pre-schedule Facebook page posts. I haven’t seen this on all my clients, but one client in Canada has the new Facebook post scheduling feature.

Here’s what’s changing for scheduling Facebook posts:

  • Instead of a clock icon in the update lower left corner, there is now a drop down Post menu in the lower right corner

  • Click the dropdown menu and choose:
    • Schedule Post
    • Backdate Post
    • Save Draft
  • Select the date and time you want your update to post, then choose Set Date

That’s it! Be on the lookout for this new Facebook page post, and be careful not to accidentally choose Post when you’re trying to Schedule!
