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 third-party scheduling tools to schedule Facebook posts to personal profiles. This means it is no longer possible to schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile.
You can still use social media scheduling tools to schedule posts to Facebook Pages and Facebook Groups, as long as you are the admin. You cannot schedule posts to Facebook Groups that you are only a member of, but not the admin.
Need a way to schedule and automate your social media posts?
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 for only $4 per month.
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.
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.
Although you cannot schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile, OneUp makes it easy to manage your social media.
