How to Schedule a Post on Facebook – New Update to Page Post Schedule

Nice!  Facebook has made a change to the “Schedule Post” tool for Pages!

This is so much faster than what existed before.  Now, Pages have a calendar view with ability to select a day on the calendar and them input a specific time within that day for the post to go out! Less clicks!

Will you use it more?

How to Schedule a Post on a Facebook Page

1. Click the clock icon in the bottom left where you are creating the post on a Facebook Page.

2. Use the calendar to navigate to the date you want the post to go out.

3. After selecting a day on the calendar, enter a time and Facebook gives you options to set the exact time (and a.m./p.m. indicators for those of us not on the 24 hour clock!).


4. Then hit the “Schedule” button!

This is a long overdue upgrade.  So many other tools had a much cleaner, less click, interface to schedule a post for Facebook so it’s about time Facebook caught up!

Will you use it more now that they’ve made it easier?
