Blogging Tips: How to schedule posts for your Facebook Page

Did you know that you can schedule posts to publish on your Facebook page? This is a great way to keep your followers engaged and entertained while you are at your “real” job, on vacation, etc. It is very easy to do and you can schedule as many posts as you like with links and pictures too!

1. Go to your Facebook page and create a post like you would normally. Add a link, picture, wording, etc. Do NOT click on Publish Now.

That’s it. Very simple and quick. I schedule Facebook posts on pages that I am admin of but I don’t have the time to check daily. I also schedule posts for the weekend since I prefer to stay offline and spend time with my family. When do you schedule posts?

I'd love to hear what you think!
