Facebook’s Scheduling Feature Tutorial (It’s Not As Scary As You Thought)

We all know the key to keeping your Facebook Business Page vibrant and Likers interested is CONSISTENCY.


But sometimes this can lead to our Facebook Page feeling like a needy child. Facebook’s handy dandy scheduling feature allows you to create updates, news, pictures to post, and schedule them into the future. Thus freeing you up to do other things while still maintaining that presence and visibility we all want.

If you haven’t used the scheduling feature on Facebook, it’s slick and easy.

  • Go to your Page like you are about to post an update.
  • Type in your update text and add an image.
  • Look for the little clock image.
  • Click and choose from the offered drop-down year, month, day, hour, and minute.
  • Click “Post” when you’re done and it automatically goes into your Activity Log (found in your Admin Panel under Edit Page) until your scheduled date and time arrives.


If you want to view what you just scheduled, go to the top of your Facebook Business Page and click “Edit Page” then “Use Activity Log.”


All your scheduled updates will appear in a “behind-the-scenes” dashboard. You also have the option of changing the dates and times once scheduled using the drop-down arrow on the upper right corner.

See? It’s not so bad. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.

  1. […] My answer? SURE…if you never want your updates to get seen or your page to grow. Consistency is key to keeping your Likers interested. Interested Likers are more likely to comment, Share, and Like, which in turn ensures you show in the the News Feeds. It’s a delicate dance, but a very important one. Facebook’s Scheduling feature helps makes this process seem not-so-much like a needy child. Read the quick tutorial I created on how to use the Schedule Feature HERE. […]
