Can I schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile?

This post goes over scheduling Facebook posts on a personal profile.

Prior to August of 2018, you could schedule Facebook posts on personal profiles using third-party scheduling tools.

However, on August 1st, 2018, Facebook changed their API and removed the ability for scheduling tools to schedule Facebook posts directly to personal profiles.

However, with the social media scheduling tool OneUp, you can schedule posts to your Facebook profile, and receive a notification on your phone when the time comes.

You just open the notification, which will copy your post’s caption to your clipboard and open the Facebook mobile app, and you simply paste in your post.

Here are some screenshots showing how it works:

How to schedule posts to a personal profile on Facebook

OneUp is a social media scheduling tool that allows you to schedule posts on Facebook, Twitter, Google My Business, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

In the Schedule Post dropdown of OneUp, choose “Schedule a post”:

Then choose which account you want to schedule this post to, and create your post. In this scenario, we will select our personal Facebook Profile:

You can attach up to 5 images to your post.

Then choose to either repeat this post, or have it just post once, and then schedule your post for a date and time in the future.

How do personal Facebook Profile notifications work?

You’ll receive a push notification on your phone at the time you scheduled the post for.

Tap the notification, and it will open your post in the OneUp mobile app:

Tap “Share this on Facebook”, and your post caption will automatically be copied. Tap “Got it” and it will open the Facebook app with your image (if your post had one):

Then you are ready to paste in your caption. Tap in the caption box and you will get a “Paste” option.

Your caption was automatically copied previously, so you just need to paste it in:

You are now ready to share your post to your personal Facebook Profile 😊

TIP: If you miss a notification, you can find all your recent notifications in the Notification History tab in the mobile app:
