Gone are the days when page administrators have to use third party apps or would have to keep signing back in, to manually post Facebook updates. Page administrators now have the option to schedule their updates as the social networking site has released its scheduling feature. This allows admins to queue posts in advance. This is especially helpful when a bunch of updates are created ahead of time and needs automated posting.
To schedule a post, simply pick a type of update and create your content. However, instead of clicking the post button, look for the tiny clock symbol at the lower left corner of the update window. A dialogue box will appear asking for the time and date when the post needs to appear—this may be as far as six months and in fifteen-minute intervals. A confirmation box will appear telling the administrator when the post will be up.
Back dates are also possible using this feature. When a time and date in the past is chosen, the update will appear at the appropriate place in the page’s timeline. All the scheduled posts will be available on the page’s activity log. Editing of scheduled posts, however, is not possible for this feature.
