Here is how to find saved draft posts on a personal Facebook profile.
While on your mobile device, you may have been typing a post, then when asked “Save This Post as a Draft?”, you chose “Save Draft”.
To find this draft again, just create a post again by tapping on the “What’s on your mind?” on your mobile device, and what you had typed before should be there again.
If your Facebook post does not appear here, then unfortunately you are out of luck, and your draft is gone.
There is no Saved Drafts section on Facebook for personal profiles. Facebook used to allow you to save drafts to a folder for personal profiles, but not anymore.
You will also notice that there is no “Save to drafts” option while on Facebook from a computer.
However, if you run a Facebook page, you can still save drafts to your Facebook Page.
Need a social media scheduling tool?
OneUp is a social media scheduling tool that allows you to schedule and automatically repeat your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Google My Business, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
Here are some of the features:
Posting to multiple pages – For people who are posting to multiple pages or more than one social network at a time, OneUp makes it easy to post to FB Pages and Groups, LinkedIn profiles and pages, and Twitter accounts, Pinterest, Google My Business, and Instagram all at once. (Personal FB profiles are not supported though).
Repeating post – OneUp gives you the option to repeat your posts automatically. This allows you to resurface old posts that otherwise would have never been seen again. Also for anyone that has a Facebook Group with daily themes that repeat every week (such as “Make it happen Monday”), OneUp makes it easy to entirely automate this.
RSS feed automation – If there are any blogs, publications, podcasts, or YouTube channels that put out good content consistently, you can add the RSS feed links in OneUp, then whenever new content is posted from those places, it is automatically shared to the pages you select.
Chrome Extension – Using the OneUp Chrome extension, you can easily schedule many images at once from any website, such as sunsets for example. You can choose which images from the website you want to post to social media, bulk update or individually update the descriptions and links for each post, then schedule them to be posted with a set interval (such as every 60 minutes), or choose custom dates and times for all of them.
Customizable UTM parameters – OneUp lets you customize UTM parameters so you can keep track of how your links are performing in Google Analytics.
Link Shortening – Connect your Bitly account and OneUp will automatically shorten any links and allow you to track clicks through Bitly.
